Fuel Operated Heater

Available in 2006 Duramax equipped vans.





A fuel-operated heater (FOH) also is available for vans equipped with the Duramax 6600 - the industry's first factory-installed application for full-size vans. It quickly provides heat to the vehicle interior in cold weather. The seamlessly integrated system is designed into the Express and Savana's chassis, saving customers the time and labor of upfitting an aftermarket system.

The electronically controlled fuel-operated heater operates automatically, turning on and off within load parameters that include outside air temperature, fuel level, coolant temperature and whether the engine is running. It features a self-contained, pressurized auxiliary coolant heater (with a surge tank) that uses diesel fuel to generate up to 17,200 Btu/h (5 kw) of heating energy.

Arguing with an engineer is a lot like wrestling in the mud with a pig. After a few hours, you realize that he likes it.

This is not the first as stated. The Sprinter van has had it for at least 2 years. It has a Espar D5 and the btu rating they are giving makes be think its will also be a D5.
