Re: Diesel Fireplace

Most non electric Diesel heaters are gravity feed burners fed with a diesel carburetor which is not like a gas engine engine carb at all. it's more like a container with a needle valve that meters the right amount of fuel to the burner. The burner can be a cage type. with or without a wick. The fuel "cokes" when it's super heated to make blue flame. That could be the "charcoal" your finding. Hard to tell by your photo. So I'm just speculating
