ASHFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - An Ashfield man has invented a new kind of oil burner. The "Yellow Heat" oil burner uses vegetable oil as its fuel source, which has never been done before.
This new type of oil burner was invented by Thomas Leue, founder and president of Homestead Inc. in Ashfield. It operates on all oils, including vegetable oil, and can be used in most oil-fired boilers and furnaces.
