I did not realize that K1 Kerosene was so high these days. I had considered the propane sunflower heads. I know they work and are quiet (as opposed to the loud propane heaters that sound like a jet engine).

The use of diesel in these old heaters is good to know. I guess that raises two concerns / questions: Is soot a problem ? and… What about the smell ?

The best time to buy many things is the “off” season. The heaters are going for less now that it is warm weather.

Thanks for all the info.
