Re: Force10 Kerosene/Diesel Cooker

I didn't know that these could safely run on diesel ... Is that confirmed in the manual or by the manufacturer?

Confirmed in the manual and by the manufacturer and by use. It's just different jets. There is one jet just for Kerosene and one that works with both.

Re: Force10 Kerosene/Diesel Cooker

if this open flame cooker runs on diesel, it will be the worst meal you have ever eaten.

Yea those are nice,I like the T LUD (top lift updraft)types of stoves that are coming along..They can power small gen sets with the porolisis gases that are created when you burn your feedstock and the by-product is charcol(sequestered carbon) so you get free syn gas to make electric power and after the feedstock has been consumed no problem it continues bruning by recycling some of the syn gas to the fire box and consumes it until it is completly burned(no emissions)!!! I know, sounds to good to be true, but it is and this process will change or even reverse globel warming!! Wow!! All this from a discussion about a stove for a boat..Well, gotta go save the world,good luck..

Re: Force10 Kerosene/Diesel Cooker

I had a Force 10 stove top with 2 burners configured for alcohol. WHAT A PAIN so smart me converted it to kerosene. I though alcohol was a pain but the kero really hit the high pain scale...........DAMNED NEAR SET THE BOAT ON FIRE!!!

The kero burner needs heating just as alcohol requires. And it recommends alcohol to do the priming. So far so good but when alcohol burns, it some times is invisible. Somehow or other, I thought the burner heating process had consumed all the preheating alcohol. I opened the jet for the kero and then the fun began. The burner was not hot enough to cause the kero to vaporized and the whole stove became a flaming mess with black soot all over the interior.

Wifey's quick action with a fire extinguisher saved the day but what a mess it made of the cook top which added additional pain to the black soot.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND KEROSENE FOR THIS TYPE OF BURNER!!!!!


AAHHhhhhh............ there is a happy ending!

It didn't take much in parts to convert the stove to propane which I did. Of course I had to purchase a propane storage box plus a couple of 6# aluminum tanks. I found we could go just about the entire season on one tank that cost $10 to fill back then. Later when our regulation happy government outlawed the older tanks, I purchased a pair of new ones. One of those went with the boat when it was sold, the other remains in my garage.

The 6# aluminum tank is brand new, never been vacuumed for propane use but now it is out of date even though its still brand new. If anybody (state side) needs this thing, let me know and I will get a shipping price and its your's for that cost.

Its certian that if we "cook" waste cellulose based products(in A Rocket Stove or TLUD) and render it into a stable form of carbon (charcol)and then introduce that into the soil as an amendment that it (carbon )can stay in the ground rather than in the atmosphere and that will help elimanate that amount that otherwise would be released into the enviroment..May work ,its a hot topic in europe and is spreading as a way to undo what has been done as far as global warming...Big symposium(biochar) in Mass.(Mass. University )in oct..Google North American Biochar Symposium and BioChar Bob goes to Hawaii on youtube,lots of positive things are said to be going on with Bio-Char...
