    I'm suprized you're not using at least a Kero mix so far North. There's only 1 wall heater model and 1 boler model approved for #2 oil. I'd recommend a good spin on filter and the use of high quality #2 oil. You might want to change nozzles more frequently also.

    Sorry, Are you asking about a space heater? They make oil fired water heaters that use a gun with a nozzle. Same with a sealed combustion wall heater. A regular heater with a wick can only use Kero.

    do not use #2 oil or you will be sorry.i have installed these for ten years and #2 oil will plug them up and then you can toss it in the trash.
