Since the combustion temp of diesel is different from KERO, expect the heater to shut down from overheating at times.
since it will probably heat up faster than on KERO.

150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition

Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... Thank you

Is it okay to burn Premium Diesel instead of Kero? Also, will I have a stronger odor problem with the premium instead of kero?

yes its ok, just make sure the air pressure pump is dialed in right. With the right air pressure the heater will perform at its best and burn as clean as it can. Its the slotted set screw (plastic usually) on the back next to the air filter. Turn it in 1/4 turn at a time till the nose cone is almost all red or orange in color. This will give you the cleanest burn. Then adjust doors/windows for fresh air as needed. Hope this helps

I changed filters,but still get eye burning smell,I do use Kerosene

In my experience, eye burning is a by product of burning even the best kero. And at 115,000, you are burning a lot.
