I have used a kero - torpedo heater as a backup heat source in my shop for the past three years. Suddenly I am having a nasty reaction to the fumes. My eyes start to burn instantly - almost like when peeling an onion. It is bad enough that I can't stay in the room for more than a few seconds. Is there something wrong with that tank of kerosene? Is there something wrong with the heater (improper combustion)? Or have I developed some kind of allergic reaction? Very strange and I'm finding it tough to operate a band saw with my eyes closed .
