TRIED AND TESTED DIESEL HEATERS 4.0 2023/2024

Updated: Feb 6





Hi everybody, we're back with our newest, updated tried and tested diesel heater post for the 4th year in a row and this time we have made some big changes.


For a start some of our favourite heaters from the past haven't even made it to the list this year for one reason or another and there are some new heaters on this list that have never made it before. We have some awesome choices for you to choose from. Another huge change this year is we have done everything in video form so we can go into much more details about why we are recommending the units and actually show you too, and boy have we added a lot of details to the video. We have added a full buyers guide section at the start of the video (chapter 2). If you don't know what you are looking for already I suggest watching it all the way through as we have covered pretty much anything you might want to know.


The video is quite long as we have covered so many details so we have added chapters to it so you can skip through and miss out the bits you don't need to know if you already know what you are looking for and would like to skip to that section. But again we have added so many details we really do think it is worthing watching all the way through.



This year we're not going to write all the details down for each heater we are recommending as our video does that much better than we can in just a few paragraphs. We are just going to embed the video in the post so you can watch it right here and then if we mention anything that you are interested in in the video you can just scroll down through this blog post to find the all the links mentioned and a few bonus extras.



Everything we mention in the video will be listed underneath the video in this blog post so if you see anything you like just scroll down a bit. Here is the video, we hope you all enjoy it...
