Looking for a forced air style portable heater. I would think around 50K BTU's would be plenty, but i'm not sure. Also what is the better choice for fuel...propane or kerosene? Any input would be great!

the fuel choice is your decision. propane is cleaner, doesn't spill, and smells less. ever get kerosene on your clothes? propane is cheaper, puts out less btu's, probably the end ratio between btu and price they are equal. 50K btu is a smaller heater, how big are you heating, is it insulated? i'm partial to propane heat, i use to have kerosene fired furnace, but went to a propane rinnai(monitor like) and a propane water heater, propane cook stove, and propane space heater(soon to be replaced). its a very clean fuel, and i dont have to touch it. there is no bleeding of lines, filters to change, fuel to get dirty.
