Diesel Heater

  1. martin62 Forum Supporter

    I just thought I would post this if anyone is interested. Last week while working on the Startrie Bandsaw I got really cold so I ordered one of the Chinese Diesel heater from Aliexpress but found a supplier based in the Check Republic at a good price 108 euro delivered. Ordered on Tue 12th and delivered on Tue 19th and no worry about Customs. Got it working today just have to put the exhaust out the wall.

    I'm interested in one of these for my garage instead of piping central heating in there, hoping you do a review of it.

    Looks like they've been getting a fair few hits as they've upped the price.

    Yes but with Black Friday on the way it shows 110 euro so with exchange rate less than £100 and you get in one week.

    I have the 5kw one set up and it's great this time of year, or any time. Got a very damp cold garage, run off of a 12v power supply and run on kerosene.
    Can heat it up from about 5 to 18 degrees in about an hour and a half then ticks over, I'd recommend one

    according to the facebook group:
    no.
    it wont run on veg oil, or waste oil.
    it will run on (red) diesel, kero, paraffin or heating oil - anything else will mean you'll spend more time cleaning it than running it.

    i run mine on red diesel. 15l lasts about 6-8 15hr days. for about ten quid?

    It was running a silencer and I think it got blocked, built up back to the combustion chamber. First time in a year its given me grief though, now running a straight through to outside

    is that just soot and carbon?
    I should really make a waste oil heater instead

    Sorry to be a pedantic pest but what fuel are you referring to, when you say 'kero'? I thought 'kerosene' was a foreign word for what Brits call paraffin, eg Esso Blue type stuff. (Which these heaters run on very well)
    (Unless you meant jet fuel which also works very well if you can get any, as it is basically paraffin.)

    Very soft soot, like anything if the exhaust gets blocked it's nowhere to go.
    When I get my fuel I ask for kerosene, line says kerosene and the guy filling the Jerry can calls it kerro :dontknow:

    Kerosene, also known as paraffin, lamp oil, and coal oil (an obsolete term), is a combustible hydrocarbon liquid which is derived from petroleum. It is widely used as a fuel in aviation as well as households.

    Paraffin price(s) seem to have shot up recently - £9.99 locally for 4ltrs locally, but this seems about right for eBay prices where you have to add p & p. Luckily, I now have a source for heating oil for £4 for twice the amount. ;)

    Here's mine

    i have no idea.
    some places sell it as kero(sene), some as paraffin.
    all i know is that whatever it is, they both work.
    :thumbup:

    costs about £2 a litre, tho, either way.

    For a cheap indirect fired heater they are great, I have a draper topedo type space heater and it belted out the heat, but also moisture and fumes...
    Now it's just dry hot clean air, at the moment it's running in recirculating mode (unplugged supply hose so drawing from the garage) but have drilled through to the outside so can draw in fresh air
