On initial start up I thought what a pos..
I couldn't believe how loud it was so I purchased a muffler and a second section of exhaust and it made a huge difference but still pretty rowdy..
So I removed the cover and lined it with some left over car audio sound deadener, put some rubber strips under the mounting points, and extended the intake and now it's about 1/4 as loud as it was.馃憤

I found about 1 1/2 lt's of valvoline oil (un used) in the garden shed so I mixed it in with 5lt of diesel to get rid of it..
I did see a chap on youtube mixing diesel and sump oil 50/50 with no ill effect on his heater and no smoke so I might try that to get rid of my used oil. ;)

Keep an eye on it if you鈥檙e mixing oil in as well. These Chinese units have a habit of coking up with normal diesel soot if you don鈥檛 run them hard now and again so I imagine some oil won鈥檛 help there.
Plenty of info online how to dismantle them for cleaning if it happens.

Ross,
Could you please paddle woolly's backside for having negative input on my thread.
She should have just got you a cup of cement, lot cheaper than running that with diesel at $2.00+/L. Oh, and that wiring looks dodgy AF.
Wooly! You're a very naughty boy 馃檮

Have a diesel heater in the caravan, works on the same principle, some people mix kero with their diesel, stops the diesel gelling in frosts and helps clean the burner and igniter. Great bit of kit.

Tank holds 4.5 lt..
This Study cost about 8 cans and 4 nips of port.. Good Evening. 馃憤
