yes lp burns cleaner but i worked in a garage that was 80 x80 and we had two lp heaters and it barly kep the chill off but one 155,000 btu rocket heater kept it nice and warm and was cheaper on the pocket.. and as far as the smell.the oil and gas fumes will stink up a car and your clothes just as bad as the kerosene will .. if this is a concern it would come down to how cold it is and how much you want to spend on fuel cost to warm your temp garage... i was talking about a forced air kerosene heater not a wick type that work much like a kerosene lamp.. the forced air heater burns hotter and cleaner than a wick type heater just my opinion
