Re: Even the New York Times withholds the address
A steam-generating plant I once toured (another story) used number _six_ fuel oil. I asked, "Is that the stuff that comes in blocks?" I thought I was being funny. The reply: it's delivered and kept hot in an underground tank, else it "starts to get kind of glassy".
Might be just the thing.
Also, today's oil tanker under 11,000 feet of the Atlantic ocean may not leak much after all, according to one source, if it hits cold water. I don't know if this ship was carrying number six, but it's plausible.
