FAQs
The most economical way to burn fuel is when its bone dry. Essentially if you put damp fuel into a lit fire/stove the fire used all its energy to dry the fuel before burning it which is counter-productive. Sometimes when fuel is wet mostly with damp wood or turf, it can lead to a build up of creosote and tars in chimneys. It tends to smoulder before it starts to burn properly. If this is not regularly removed from the chimney, burning a hot fire in the fireplace could ignite it and in some cases cause a chimney fire.Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

The simple answer is yes you can, but it may be difficult to light and to get going and burn effectively in your open fire. Cosyglo burns much better in an open fire as its designed for open fires. Ecobrite is a lower volatile product than Cosyglo which is why its harder to light or burn in an open fire.Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
