With any internal combustion devise it needs oxygen to combust the fuel, I suspect that your house is sealed shut to keep out the cold.  I suggest that you raise a window slightly so as to cause a draft for the heater. Be sure that the raised window is not between people and the heater because the cold air will pass over them and they will get very chilled.
This is the same fix for smoking fireplaces.

Secondhand ,when I put heating on I can smell diesel fumes ,what could it be


Since there's very little information to go on, I'll guess...

Guessing it is a car or truck.

Guessing you have an exhaust leak under the hood.

Guessing the air intakes for heat are picking some of that up.

Your manufacturer, Toyotomiusa, recommends that you tighten all the joints on the fuel line. Your owner's manual CLICK HERE contains detailed drawings showing the location of all parts, including the fuel injector. Your unit will need to be serviced by a qualified technician if you have tightened the connectors and still smell kerosene or find wet spots under your heater. It should not leak or smell of kerosene. If you're smelling kerosene, you should not operate the unit, because the leak may cause a fire.

Smell fuel when idling


Were your plugs gaped correctly?

When you pulled the old plugs, were they very black or covered in oil?

If they were black, you have an oil leak. Check the area around the wires and see if there is any excessive oil buildup.

The fuel smell would be coming from the unburned fuel passing through your engine.

Did you have all the wires put back on one at a time? If not, you might have gotten the firing order wrong, or you have a bad coil pack.

Usually white smoke means there is water getting into the cylinders, indication usually of a head gasket failure. the smell of fuel could be that it is flooding due to compression and vaccum. Check your oil for water and your water for oil. Hope this helps.

Getting gas smells and misfiring on a 2000 chevy venture. what might be the problem? was told not running on 2 of the 6 cylinders could that be the only problem? i am being told its something else


first off you have to fix the misfire problem before you can do anything else,as a misfire will cause a fuel smell because you have 2 cylinders acting like a raw fuel pump ,by the fuel entering the cylinder not burning a being pumped out unburned.so you have to find out why it is your six cylinder car is only running on 4 cylinders and repair the problem.then you can go from there if you have to,also you will have to change the oil as it will have fuel in the oil which thins out the oil to a point it does not do it`s job and could ignite in the oil pan causing other problems

I have just lit a coal fire for the first time in the living room, all is OK ecept when I went into the bedroom (2 floors above) I could smell smoke quite badly Any advice?


The chimney needs to be 3 feet taller than the highest point of the house . If you are running the clothes dryer, bathroom vent fan, or exaust hood in kitchen it makes a vacum in the house that can draw smoke into the house down the chimmney . I think when you burn wood or coal in a house it is pretty hard not to be able to smell it. Our house and clothes do not smell like smoke any more since we stopped burning wood.

Smell of oil throughout the house when the boiler is on


Other than the stench of fuel oil permeating every soft surface throughout the house, there are numerous health hazards associated with exposure to petrochemical vapors. Shut the unit off until you can get it repaired.
