Convection heater compatibility with Biodiesel

I have an old heater of this type and trying to burn BD in it. Filled it with BD and couldn't get to work. Poured 3-4 oz. kerosene on wick and lit. My thinking was that with enough heat the BD would start and continue to burn. It burned well until the BD burned out. Is there a mixture that will work? Any adjustment that help? Anybody tried this before? Thanks Robert

B100 Biodiesel does not run up a wick. It is probably the only thing it won't do.Try different percentage blends of kero and BD to see how much BD you can get to burn consistently.

Thanks for the reply. I guess that is what I try next. I'll drain the tank at start with 50/50 mix. Thanks again Robert
