    Separate tank for diesel heater

    Heej guys, We are thinking of installing a diesel heater under our van. ( Planar 2d). But since we have a TSI petrol van, we don't have a diesel tank. So we could install a separate small diesel tank for the heater underneath the van. Since we don't have An adblue tank neither, i was maybe...

    Can I run the night-heater whilst in motion?

    Hi, Hopefully not a stupid Q, but I recently had a diesel heater installed and have been wondering... Is it okay to drive with the heater running? For example, I often preheat the van before a drive locally for a walk and would be nice to know if I need to turn it off then back on when I...

    2kW or 4kW heater?

    Do I go for a 2kW or 4kW, my head is spinning trying to decide. I was always under the impression what will do more will do less, but you can not have more than it can do. So this is my logic the 4kW will heat up the van quicker so you don’t have to have it on as long. If you want it nice and...

    Fuel Gauge fault after fitting night-heater

    So over the weekend I dropped the tank to fit a dip tube/standpipe for my diesel heater. Put it all in no issues, bolted the tank back up. Started up the van several times and noticed that i had 100 extra miles of range. Thought my dip tube must be fouling the float arm so pulled it back to...

    Heaters........... can’t I just use the stove?

    Night heaters - Eber, Planar, Webasto, Chinese etc........ they all burn burn a fuel to release heat. Is there not a way to harness the heat from a gas hob to warm the van? I realise it's not remotely, or thermostatically controlled, but heat output is all about energy released, so some sort of...
