If you can find a way to load you engine, say add a generator to it, for a 2GM20F it would be about 8KW, draw about 6KW as electric heat and recover the heat from the engine, its called combined heat and power, this setup is very efficient, diesels combust very efficient when loaded, better then 90% burn, you get about 20% rotation, the rest being heat, so with a CHP unit it is better then most house heaters,
next question, do you want to run up 720 hours amonth on your engine?
