How long can I have this heater on? I drive long distances sometimes for business and, sometimes, fun. Is this heater going to be able to handle that kind of use rate?

The system is designed to be efficient and to be used for long periods of time. You should not have a problem.

Alright, but what about the temps. I’d imagine this heater gets hot?

The temperature of this item is made to operate between -40℃ to +20℃.

What about the oil pump?

It has the same working temperature of -40℃ to +20℃.

If it is efficient then just how efficient is it?

You were talking about the fuel up there… What type of fuel does this heater take again?

It works off of the same type of diesel fuel used to power your Sprinter Van that is available at most traditional gas stations.

Is this thing going to take up a bunch of room in my van?

This kit is made to fit under your floor or inside the interior of your vehicle. It is relatively small and compact. In fact, it is the same size as an Espar heater; coming in at 310mm X 122mm X 115mm.

Is this supposed to be like the Espar heater?

Yes. This item is supposed to be similar to the Espar heater. If you are looking for an item similar to that product then you should consider this one.

Well, if it is supposed to be like the Espar then I need to know how much power this heater has, can you tell me that?

The manufacturer specification rates this capable of delivering 5KW of power.

Wait, so which one is more powerful? The Espar or this one?

Technically, it is this model. It is capable of 5KW and the Espar puts out 2.2KW. But that does not mean that it is more efficient. It could use more fuel. However, it will probably heat an area faster but you should be wary of where you have that heat directed in case of fire. Anytime heat is involved then you should be careful of what could be heated in the process of making your cabin warm.

Will this kit also work on my Ram Promaster or Ford Transit?

Yes, this heater is capable of being installed in either of those vans.
