Diesel Will the Dyna-Glo heater burn diesel fuel? Apparently kerosene is being phased out around here and I either need a different heater or need to switch fuels.

Well, somebody once told me that if you add a quart of oil to 5 gal of kero, it makes a good diesel substitute. So, in theory, I would add a little ethinal (corn gas) to the kero.

    In retrospect, adding ethinal can be a little dangerous. I figured out that if I stop getting kero at one specific gas station the problem fixes itself. Since only getting kero at selective stations, my wick has lasted 2 or 3 years. They have also removed their kero pump from service in that time.

Dyna-Glo kerosene forced heater burning eyes and will not stay lit with top on


Do NOT use it indoors. If it's burning your eyes it's carbon monoxide from an inefficient burn and it will kill you. Kerosene flow is not working correctly. Cannot diagnose without examining. I'd recommend taking it thoroughly apart and cleaning all parts (especially internally of parts... anywhere kerosene flows). You can use "Brake Kleen" (or any brand) from an auto parts store. It evaporates quickly and leaves no residue.

How do u convert from kerosene to diesel


there may be possible ways out there to do the conversion but it may put you and your loved ones in jeopardy. kerosene and diesel fuel have different thermal characteristic during the burning process so the heater designed to run on kerosene may not be capable of handling the burning characteristics of diesel fuel.This may lead to unwanted fire incidents and loss of lives. Best is to purchase heater made for diesel fuel.

I just replaced the wick, cleaned up the heater and filled with new K-1 kero. The heater (Dyna-Glo RMC-95-C7) is emitting black smoke worst than ever. The wick is burning a little unevenly.


Either the wick was improperly installed or you may not have allowed enough time for the wick to soak in the kerosene and become evenly distributed. Check the placement of the new wick and allow time (several hours) for the wick to absorb the kerosene.

Can you use diesel instead of kerosene in ready heaters?


No - diesel fuel is NOT the same as kerosene. Kerosene is #1, regular diesel is #2. They are not interchangeable.

Do i need to replace filter if i have been using kerosene and want to switch to diesel


No, the kerosene is number 1 fuel oil and Diesel is number 2. No.2 is a heavier fuel with more BTU's than the kerosene. After you have burned the diesel for awhile, you may want to change the filter. If you have trouble getting the diesel to burn, mix it with 25% kerosene and it will flow and go through the nozzle easier

Make sure it is diesel #2 fuel as the incorrect fuel will cause it to smoke and clog the spray head. Also make sure the plug is getting good spark and the filter element is clean and unrestricted
