diesel tankless water heater

Does anyone know a vendor that makes a diesel tankless hot water heater. It should be similar to a propane or natural gas TANK-LESS water heater, except diesel generates the heat. I want it to be a "stand-alone" on demand heater that is NOT integrated with the main engine cooling system and not connected to any heat exchanger.

Re: diesel tankless water heater

Thank you Paul, but those appear to work on heat exchanger technology. I need to minimize the unit size so I need a direct heat transfer

These are tankless. I replaced my aprox 10 gal water heater with this unit in about the same space.
