Maybe a stupid question but is it ok to store an oil filled radiator on its side? Obviously when it's off and cold. Thanks.

We also had one that leaked. They are made to stand up so there is a clue :-)Good idea to double bag it.

I keep mine upside down in a recess in my car boot with no trouble at all, but itís a crappy cheap one. Maybe better quality ones leak.

The heating element is in the base and it heats the oil above it which then radiates the heat.

If you used it horizontal it would not be efficient and the element could overheat.

Thanks folks.. Bernie I'm not talking about using it horizontal, just storing it.

Thanks
