kero heaters work great. they smell, but never been an issue with fumes with me.
either a 2 car, or a 30x45 shop. its more the heat that will get your eyes rather than the fumes if its too close to your working area. i usually face it away from where i am.
the propane heaters work great too. some arent quite as loud as the kero heaters.
i have found that sometimes my eyes will burn a lil depending on where i got my bottle filled.
my eyes are sensitive. i dont know what is the difference in propanes. but sometimes it bothers me.

Both heaters could kill you if the place isn't vented.I use to use a 32,000 BTU propane heater.It would warm up my garage in under 10 minutes then you put in on a low setting.BUT after a few hours I'd get dizzy and have to open up the door to circulate the air.
i normally crack the door just a bit, becuase the 65,000 BTU Kero will run you out of the 2 car garage. smell is not bad at all.

I have had 1 propane, and 2 kerosene. The propane heater i used was horrible. Worst fumes, and would kill you. Then i got a 55,000 btu kerosene. I ran it on kerosene for the first yr or 2. Then kerosene became hard to find by me, and i switched to diesel. Diesel has been great. about 1 month ago my 55,000 btu kerosene heater took a crap on me. So i picked up a 70,000 btu kerosene. It is even better. There is very little to no fumes once i got it all adjusted, has a thermostat that works great.
I am heating a 50ft by 30ft drywall/insulated garage with 14 ft cielings. If you were to buy one, i would definatly say kerosene over propane.

We have a kerosene Ready Heater I think its like 110,000BTU and that thing can heat up a large area rather quick. We have a thermostat for it that you plug into the heater and then plug the end of the thermostat into extension cord. Works really nice and you don't have to unplug it and plug it when your hot or cold. The fumes aren't really noticeable to me but your clothes will smell like kerosene after your around it for awhile.

I have used one for about 9 yrs and I don't have any problems with fumes with mine. I even started running off road diesel in it last yr cause it's cheaper, gotta love the farm/ag permits.
All of them that I have seen have a thermostat on them even if it is just a dial with no temp marked off, which is how mine is. It's easy enough to adjust it to turn off once it reaches a comfortable temp.
