I have a multifuel stove which can burn smokeless fuel as well as wood - what exactly is smokeless fuel and where can I get it?

Examples of smokeless fuel are anthracite (a naturally occurring smokeless, deep mined coal) or any of the ‘ovoids’ (a fuel manufactured for purpose). Avoid ‘ovoids’ with a high petroleum coke base or high sulphur content as they can sometimes damage your liner, particularly if you tend to ‘slumber’, (ie. burn the stove at a very low temperature) for long periods of time.

We are happy to discuss fuel options in more detail and can supply the full range, in convenient 25kg plastic bags. If you do not live in our area, contact the Solid Fuel Association to get details of our local coal merchant – www.solidfuel.co.uk or telephone 0845 6014406.
