What's the Best Fuel to Burn in a Stove?
February 8, 2021
As leading suppliers of fuel solutions, we’re often asked what is the best fuel to use in stoves and multi-fuel stoves. Many people are actually unaware of which fuels are better suited to which stoves, resulting in them not being able to use their stove correctly or to its full potential. This problem is becoming even more apparent as more homeowners are opting to use stoves in their homes.
Whilst there isn’t a straightforward answer to this question, we can however offer you our years of expertise when it comes to fuels that can be used for stoves. This way, you can start using your stove properly and enjoy using it knowing you are using the best possible fuels for your stove.
Different fuels are designed for different reasons and each have their own properties and burning characteristics. Below, we’ve made a comprehensive yet easy to understand guide on what fuels you should be using for your stove.
Multi-fuel Ovoids are another big seller when it comes to fuel for stoves, and it's obvious as to why! Whilst this fuel can only be used in non-smokeless areas, it comes with a whole host of benefits that make it a fantastic option for households with stoves.
If you’re looking for a high quality fuel for your stove that’ll provide great heat output, this is a great choice.
The heat and light output is on par with many smokeless fuels, however, since they are not smokeless, they are often much cheaper in price. Don’t be put off by the fact that this fuel is not smokeless or HETAS approved, as they actually have a far lower sulphur content than other economy ovoids on the market. This means they are not as harmful to you, your appliance or the environment.
This form of fuel has been around for decades, making it one of the oldest forms of fuels we have provided. Phurnacite was designed over 40 years ago for the use on Aga’s and Rayburns (enclosed appliances).
It is actually smokeless and HETAS approved making it a fantastic option for stove owners who have families or are conscious of the environment.
Due to it being a smaller sized ovoid, it does mean that Phurnacite burns much faster than its fuel counterparts. Due to this, we don’t overly recommend it to be used for stoves but rather other cooking appliances such as Rayburns and cookers.
