Not willing to sacrifice comfort?

So, you've got that itch for adventure, but you're not willing to sacrifice comfort, are you? No, sir! When it comes to tackling the great outdoors, having a cozy sanctuary to retreat to, no matter the weather, is an absolute game-changer. And that's where the trusty Planar diesel heater swoops in to save the day!

Now, before you dive headfirst into the world of portable diesel heaters, let's pump the brakes for a moment and talk shop. Sure, we could debate the ins and outs of certified commercial heaters versus the budget-friendly alternatives. But let's face it – when you're dealing with something that's burning fuel while you catch those Z's, safety and reliability take the top spot on the podium in our humble opinion.

But fear not, my fellow adventurer! No matter which heater you choose to warm your cockles, there are a few things you need to know.

Picture this: you're cruising down the highway, the wind in your hair, and suddenly, you catch a whiff of diesel. Not exactly the fragrance you were hoping for, right? Well, it’s time to dive into the nitty-gritty of diesel heater know-how and first up, the fuel tank lid. Ah yes, the unsung hero of cozy nights on the road. Most heaters come equipped with a vented cap to keep the flames alive, but during transit, that fuel can sometimes get a bit... unruly. Cue the unwanted spills and diesel-scented chaos. But fear not, my intrepid travelers! By purchasing a non-vented cap designed specifically for transport, you can keep your precious fuel right where it belongs – in the tank. Swap that bad boy out during transport, and voila! No more unwanted fuel fumes invading your space.

Now, let's address the burning question – pun intended: how long does a full tank last? Strap yourself in, because you're looking at a solid 25 to30 hours of toasty warmth. That's enough to power through a long weekend or a three-night adventure without having to break out the onesie.

But what if you're planning an epic, cross-country odyssey? You're gonna need some extra juice to keep that heater humming along. Enter: Rotopax Fuel tanks. These bad boys are the Ferrari of fuel storage. They seal like Fort Knox, pack away like a dream, and can take a beating like Rocky Balboa.

And the best part? Mounting them is easier than nailing a parallel park on an empty street. Whether you're rocking a roof rack or going bareback with a Seasucker Rotopax Mount, you can attach them practically anywhere on your rig.

So, whether you're chasing waves on the coast or tracking big game in the backcountry, Rotopax tanks are the ultimate wingman for your adventure

Next challenge: storage during the off-season. Ah, yes, the woes of old diesel gumming up the works. Modern diesel has a shelf life shorter than a Kardashian marriage, so make sure to either burn it off or switch to good ol' kerosene for long-term storage. Yes, it might cost a bit more, but trust me, the last thing you want is to be stranded in the wilderness with gummed-up fuel lines. Remember the old saying: "Sometimes you get what you pay for."

Last but most certainly not least, let's not forget about the unsung hero of safety – the Carbon Monoxide Sensor! Yes, your diesel heater may be an air-to-air exchanger, but why take chances? If you are burning fuel of any kind, your safety is paramount, so don't forget to use one.

We hope these nuggets of information have you feeling ready to conquer the great outdoors in style. But if you're still hungry for more info or have any burning questions (yep, there's another pun), don't hesitate to give us a shout.

Cheers to epic adventures and cozy nights under the stars!
