all the rage recent is chinese diesel heaters.... and so far the rage seems to be a good one. Low cost and they work. Best info is from this fellows series of videos

Here is a fellow that has done some with capturing exhaust heat via heat exchanger to coolant for even more use of heat output using a vehicle EGR Cooler as the heat exchanger. Pretty genius IMHO. He also has a review of a not as cheap model that does this internally now.

3yrs running one on junk oil as fuel



others report much poorer success than these brothers butttt.. others it appears they did not modulate pump speed and fan speed to help ensure maximal combustion (as determined by measure of exhaust smoke content) .... soooo..... the secret probably lies somewhere in between blending/viscosity reduction and using fan/pump speed appropriately

Ever see one that had a thermostat to control it?
