    Good enough reasons not to have. And yes Alf I do like a very warm garage
    although 2 x 15kW may be a bit over the top for my standard double car unit !!

    Got a nice drip feed oil burning stove for sale (will burn almost anything oil based and flammable)

    I should say that heating the garage is a hypothetical situation
    in my case. Why you might ask? Because I make sure I'm never
    in the UK when I'm likely to need garage heating! Well at
    least not more than a 2 bar infra red electric.

    18 x18 including the filler, tank part 16 x 16 . width 3.5 inch. Metric sizes are available if you look at your tape measure.

    I thought I may as well knock up a couple of brackets and get it in.
    The only things other than tools I have use that were not in the kit are screws to replace the tek screws that came with the kit a pair of brackets, 4 off 6mm bolts, 1 off 6mm penny washer [body washer] used on the pump mounting and a nut to use as a spacer on the inlet pipe. I still need to drill a hole through the wall for the exhaust.
    The tank has to have a 8mm hole drilled in it for the outlet fitting. It can be made to be either left or right hand fill.

    It is a very simple thing to put together and no one should have any problems with one. It is impossible to get the electrical wiring wrong as all the plugs and sockets are paired.

    Filled the tank with diesel and bled it through to the pump, connected to a battery as a power supply. Pressed on and away it went. It went though its purge sequence and ignited first time. I have run it for a couple of hours tuning it up and down and it responds fine. Turned it off and it goes through its shutdown cooling sequence and then turns off.

    As far as quality is concerned without doubt the worst part is the controller whilst perfectly functional just not as nicely made as the rest.
    Early days yet but I am more than happy with it.

    The heat output is good. Exactly how much who knows. The heater itself seems very quiet but I will be able to tell better once I get exhaust outside next week.
    I will stick my meter on it to see what its consuming electrically as well.

    As said you were right about the pump.
