    Is there such a thing as a 120v/ diesel refrigerator and a diesel stove?
    With the price of propane here- $1.76 gal, off road diesel or stove oil at
    approx $.99 gal sounds much better price wise as well as being much easier
    to transport and store.

  2. FWIW, I remember seeing a kerosene refrigerator once. It was an
    absorption-cycle unit with a wick-type burner not unlike a kerosene
    lamp.

    It was ancient (but working just ducky) when I saw it in about 1970.

    Servel makes/made a "parafin" refrigerator that would run on #1 Kero.
    If the wick got rough, the bottom of the stove got black. Even on
    Parafin.
    Other manufacturers too, but check out Lehman's Hardware in Kidron
    Ohio. I KNOW they carry non electric fridges and oil stoves.
    Or possibly Cumberland Hardware in Crossville Tennessee.

    Affordable Solar also carries Servel Kero fridges.
    You want an RK400.

    The Yachting and RV crowd has them available as well.
