Thanks Pete. It looks like the Webastos can be had significantly cheaper than the Espars. Webasto gasoline might be the best combo of price and simplicity(single fuel wise). With a family of 4 and an RB van, space is at a premium, so it would be nice not to have the tank in the van.

I just need to drill a hole in a metal can filled with explosive fumes.

What could go wrong?

Lots. You should inert the tank first. Hopefully it's empty to start, completely drained. Then you can simply drop in some dry ice which will fill it with Co2. That displaces all the oxygen and without O2, no fire or explosion can happen. You can also use exhaust fumes to displace the oxygen, or better yet, remove the sending unit and install the pickup through the top plate of the unit.

All that is too difficult, except AT's last sentence. Just pull the sender/pump assembly out of the top of the tank and drill it where you need. I did it recently to vent a tank. Plenty of room in the E-series sender/pump assembly flange.

Thanks guys. Sounds like it's not too crazy of an operation.
Looks like I need to start calling Webasto dealers and compare prices of the domestic version (ST) vs the overseas (STC). It seems that in the U.S. you need to go through a distributor.

If prices I've seen mentioned around the interwebs (on forums) hold true, it seems that one of these can be had for not much more than $1k, and they don't need a separate altitude kit.
I'll update with what I find out.

Has anybody tried the +/- $200 knock off diesel heaters on eBay? Look too good to be true at that price, hoping to get some feedback before I pull the trigger. Thanks.
