*NEW* Super Quiet Fuel Pump
Will This Heater Fit a Different Model?
I get asked this all the time so here is the answer….There are two versions of this pump available – the 2kW version with a 4.4ml flow rate and the 4kW version with a 6.8ml flow rate. These are designed specifically for the Autoterm Planar, Russian made heaters. We cannot guarantee that these will work with other brands such as Eberspaecher, Webasto or the Chinese models. It is likely that the flow rate will be different and these pumps will not work at all, could damage your heater or would only work at certain parameters. We have not fully tested this on all the models out there so if you want to be a ‘Guinee Pig’, we won’t stop you, but take no responsibility and do not advise it as a good idea.

Why Buy An Autoterm Planar Heater?
Simply put this heater is on a par with the other top end made Diesel Air Heaters in terms of quality and efficiency (in fact a little better). Engine noise is also very quiet and comparable if not quieter than the others. There is also a silent fuel pump and a digital touchscreen ‘smartphone’ style controller available soon. Do not be fooled by cheap versions calling themselves Planar on Ebay which are from China. These are a very much inferior product in terms of reliability, build quality and noise. The real Autoterm Planar heaters are built in Russia by engineers who make them for the military and who have space technology experience. If there was ever a country to make sure that they build something robust and reliable to deal with the cold weather it must be there! They have a vested interest in making sure their product can deal with the most extreme of environments. They are tested to minus 50 degrees centigrade and will auto adjust for altitude up to 3600m. If you’re taking your van into conditions such as that, then hats off to you! Enjoy.
