We have decided to heat the garage with a torpedo heater the rest of the season. When the weather warms we plan to insulate, drywall and install an electric furnace. But for now a torpedo will do. Problem is kerosene is hard to find in the city these days. Home Depot sells it in a five gallon can for $45 but that is way too high to be using it for heating. A friend says he knows someone who runs one on diesel with no problems. Anyone have any experience doing so. Any safety issues? What about soot or odor?
