Re: Diesel cook stoves and heaters - teach me the basics!

While I am not at all in favour of a diesel stove for cooking I must say I love diesel heaters. We've got one of the built in jobbies though I confess I'd probably prefer a Dickenson for that bit of a glow plus no need for a fan. OK, so fan is pretty quiet but it is still there. Diesel is also a nice dry heat, condensation is simply not an issue.

OTOH, I guess I'm happy to live without the occasional blow back.
