Interesting concept. A diesel heater and cooking hob combo. If you could do away with gas bottles all together would you? Mind you, you might be wanting a diesel powered fridge too.

I like it and I'm sure the fridge could be run somehow too, you always have diesel in the tank so no running out

Nice combo unit, but would it not require a seperate tank for green diesel to take full advantage of the price difference ?

You could use a heat exchanger for hot water supply

I wonder how do they compare with gas regarding emissions?

I would think the combustion of gas is cleaner than diesel, with its controversial NOx byproducts. That said, I’d imagine the proportion of diesel used to heat and cook would be minuscule compared to the amount used to propel 3 tonnes of metal down the road.

Agree Jason, but I think it will be looked on as a step backwards though.

You could well be right Pat.
