It souds like it is starveing for air, I would check all of the filters and the air line that runs to the combustion nozzle as it may have a crack or break in it. The nozzle does tend to get pretty hot and the lines get brittle after a while.

Your talking about 1/8 cup of gas, per gallon of diesel. I think it should be fine but it will run hotter than usual. You will need to keep an eye on the flame and after it warms up. If the flame continues to pass by the cone then you will need to drain between 1 to 2 gallons out and store it (You will need to use your best judgement). Fill the heater back up with new diesel and use. when you run out, add 1 gallon of the tainted diesel to 2 gallons of new diesel and repeat. You will need to pay attention to the performance and make your own determination. Please remember that these units are to be used in well ventilated areas. They produce a lot of carbon monoxide. Good luck., .
Hi, If this heater is the Reddy 170,000 b.t.u. heater, model # 170t professional series, then yes you can.It is a multi-fuel heater. Fuels it can use are Kerosene, JP8, Jet A fuel, 1&2 Diesel fuel, and 1&2 fuel oil. It must be this model 170T. Sincerely, Shastalaker7
