  2. Do not piggy back one question on another as it looks as though you have answered the question.

    "what are the risks of using oil as a fuel ?"

    Do you mean hazards? Risk is a combination of the consequence and probability.

    Hazards include

    fire
    theft (sad to say common in rural communities in the UK at the moment)
    single heating/cooking supply (so that failure of delivery means no heating or cooking)
    spills into the ground (enviromental contamination)
    spills on hands etc. (fuel oil contains toxic and carcenogenic compounds)

    You can probably think of a few more. These are the hazards. It says nothing about the consequences or the probability of the consequence occurring.

    I think you mean potassium nitride (K3N)

    I have assumed in generating my hazards list that you are asking about the domestic use of oil as a fuel.

    Did you mean more generally?? If so you will have to define the boundaries of 'oil' and 'as a fuel'
