Heat - Fuel - BTU

Over the next couple days we will be discussing the differences between conventional heating fuels. Trying to make a comparison can be difficult; we will do our best. We are going to use One Gallon of Gasoline as our base fuel so, it is important to know that each gallon of gasoline generates 116,090 BTU's of energy and we will draw comparisons with that one gallon on gasoline which, is NEVER used as a heating fuel but it is a fuel that everyone can relate to. (a BTU, British Thermal Unit, is the traditional unit of energy used world wide)
