I don't know if Force 10 offers the option, but to burn a fuel with a different viscosity, you will need to change out the fuel metering valve.
For example, diesel is thicker than kerosene, so you will need to have a larger opening in the needle valve to allow the right amount of fuel through.
If you put other fuels into the heater without changing the fuel metering valve, you will end up with either too little fuel flowing (in the case of diesel) or too much fuel flowing (as in the case of say...alcohol).
