Subject: Steamboat fuels


I know I had emailed Frank Prudent and others that I know about the different fuels the Delta Queen, Mississippi Queen and American Queen use...I know that the DQ uses #6 fuel oil...aka "Bunker C", or as we say on the lakes..."heavy" fuel oil...but I can't remember what the other's use, and for sake of conversation, possibly from the "oldtimers" what the older Greene Line boats might have used...such as coal, wood, heavy fuel oil, diesel, whiskey...etc. Just curious...Pete
