We know that it may be difficult to choose from too many different options. HEATPORT offers the largest selection of fuel tanks for diesel heaters and we are adding more.
How should I choose the right model?
Each installation is unique, and especially if your space is extremely limited (camper-vans and small motorhomes) you want the best tank that fits perfectly into your small space. We have models that allow fixed installation on the wall or free standing tanks in variety of shapes. Take your tape measure and check the best spot where would you like to position your fuel tank and choose from the most suitable models. The tank should not block the storage area but instead offer easy access to the filling lid and provide reasonably large capacity, so you do not have to refill the tank too often.
What is a reasonable capacity?
This depends on how often you intend to use the diesel heater and what is the average heating power required to heat your space. One litre of the diesel contains about 10kW/hours of the energy, which means that if your heating unit runs all night (10 hours) on the continuous power 1.5kW, the average consumption may be about 1.5litre of the diesel over this period of the time.
Note: Keep in mind, that the quality of diesel degrades over time. Diesel should never sit in the tank for longer period than 6 months, otherwise the tank must be emptied and filled with new diesel.
