answer 2
No the unit does not have a thermostat and it is not recommended you use one. Unit requires a lenghty cool down period and the in-line thermostats used on other heaters would not allow power for the cool down cycle.

No it has a rocker switch to start up. If you loose power you will have to restart it. For safety sake I don't think you would want it to start up without manually turning it on.

I use two of these heaters in a 40' x 64' barn without issue. My son borrows one of them for his insulated 2 car garage, works fine, but as a precaution he keeps one of the garage doors open about 2" when heater is in operation. Unit is actually pretty quiet, and odor is very minimal....much better than the older style torpedo heaters.

Define "enclosed space." As with ANY type of combustible heater, you will need to provide adequate ventilation. I use my heater (always supervised - never unattended) in an area measuring 16'W x 22'L x 10'H. As a precaution, I also have a CO detector located about 10' away. Has yet to make a peep. Again, adequate ventilation is the key here.

Yes, you can use diesel, however the manufacturer recommends using Kerosene 1. It can shorten the lifespan of the product and requires much more maintenance.

A recent review (October 2011) indicates that the heater is shipped with a label saying it can indeed burn diesel as well as some other fuels. The reviewer even took a photo of the said label.
