Rural-dwellers in my county use oil systems ( diesel of kerosine ), as it is much cheaper to run than tank LPG or storage radiators, which are even dearer than closed anthracite/back boiler systems. Some of these rural-dwellers are in areas prone to protracted power cuts, so they often have some cooking capability fuelled by propane gas via cylinders outside the kitchen. This gas is suitable for severe winter use, as it still gases-off at sub-zero temperatures.
