I wouldn't, I used to use soot from the log fire, and ash from bonfire of plant waste, I wouldn't use anything from an oil based or coal based product though.

Maybe someone else will have some ideas.?

I remember my grand father using it on the garden, but for the life of me I can't remember why.

Personally I wouldn't, oil based stuff isn't good for the soil, it makes it greasy and won't break down naturally very quickly. There are micro organism's which feed on oil waste in nature, but not for the average garden. 

In agreement with the above...........soot and ash from burning wood is useful.

I am intrigued by the veg oil heater tho..........just hope you are not scoffing all those chips personally


Interesting idea, but I'd be a bit worried about putting it in a pitching boat like the guy in the video said, but perhaps he only uses it when moored!
