W80 in a kerosene heater?
I normally use D2 in my torpedo type 65K BTU "jet" (fan forced) kerosene space heater because of the cost of K1 (close to $5/gal here). It works great in the 65K one, but not too well in my 115K bigger one. It has issues on K1 too, so I guess it's just the heater itself.
The question is has anybody ran W80 (what I run in my truck), or some blend of WMO in one of these heaters? I use these heaters in my 30x40 shop building which also has a wood stove but I hate spending time stoking the fire instead of working for just a few hours. It also takes a long time to heat up on just wood.
