Diesel is Our Heating for Camping Fuel of Choice
It’s that time of year again, winter is in full swing, temps are low, and the last thing you want is to be miserable freezing in a tent all night long. Therefore, camping is postponed until the weather gets better.
Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. Heating for camping has come a long way, and a quick search on the internet will fill your screen with endless options to stay warm in nature.
So, here you go – 4WDTalk’s heating for camping choice is diesel, specifically, the 2D portable diesel air heater from Planar.
There are a few reasons why we chose a diesel specifically the unit from Planar, and we will cover all of them below.
The first one is that we have hands-on experience with this unit; therefore, we can provide a real-world opinion that is not based on a leaflet.
The second reason is safety and reliability. Due to the design of a diesel heater, the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning that is present in other types of heating methods is eliminated.
This is because the diesel heater is actually a heat exchanger. Imagine it like the heater in your vehicle, which uses the warm engine to warm up the air that is then pumped inside the cabin.
Throughout this process, the warm air was in no way associated with combustion. Furthermore, there is no combustion or burning of fuel happening right next to you. Therefore, the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning from this heating for camping sources is just about zero.
Adding to the above is that Planar meets all safety standards and is one of the best diesel heater-selling manufacturers in the world. Therefore, you can be sure you are in safe hands.
A third benefit of diesel heaters as heating for camping is that the warm air produced is dry; thus, issues of condensation are eliminated.
This is a big positive as it also eliminates mold, bad smells, and in the case of cars, rust.
The next benefit comes from the fact that most off-road vehicles run on diesel. Therefore, with a diesel heater, you will never run out of fuel because diesel is available everywhere, and even if you do run low, you can use the fuel that is already in your truck.
However, even if you do not connect the heater to the main tank, you will not have any issues with the Planar 2D portable diesel air heater. You see, during 8 hours of work, the planar 2D will only use 2 liters of fuel.
The unit from Planar will also work great in high altitudes as it can adjust its working parameters to ensure maximum performance even at 8,200 feet above sea level.
For heating boats up to 25ft, campers, vans, camp tents, motorhomes, or even ice fishing huts, the dry heat and versatility of the Planar is tough to beat.
