Minecraft: Which lasts longer ?

Using wood to power the furnace ... Which lasts longer: logs or planks ? (1 log = 4 planks ... are they the same duration ? do 4 planks last as long as 1 log?)

Charcoal lasts longer. That may seem to not make a lot of sense but if you use logs as fuel to "smelt" logs into charcoal the charcoal actually lasts significantly longer. This effect is even greater if you use 1 charcoal to "smelt" 8 wood into charcoal.

Wood and Planks both last 15 seconds (or smelt 1 and a half things) and charcoal lasts 80 seconds (smelts 8 things).

Planks are the best imo for wood based stuff.
Coal is the best overall.
Lava buckets are the 'best' but not practical.

Actually, because logs are pretty much the same as planks they would both have the same duration. And because logs are crafted into 4 wood planks, you should craft the log and use the 4 wood planks.
