Tried what I think is called #1 diesel in a kerosene stove with Primus burners. Had to throw the burners away as they became hopelessly clogged. Fortunately the burners were available and not too expensive at that time. Now, wouldn't take any chances are burners are hard to source and quite expensive. #1 diesel is the more highly refined diesel not the usual #2 that you get at the pump
. Switched to Mineral Spirits which worked fine in the stove but not so well in Aladdin or Den Haan trawler
lamps. Had to switch to lamp oil
to keep the lamps from flaring up.
There are supposedly diesel burners for the Taylor Cabin Heater
. At least people are claiming they are burning diesel in their heaters. Never heard of anyone using a diesel burner in a cooking
stove. Talking Primus type burners not a true diesel stove.
