I've been driving so far for about 45 minutes, and the heater works AMAZING. It is very quiet, odor free and puts out a TON of heat. Maybe even too much, it gets pretty hot on lowest setting. This project will serve me well in the upcoming months. I have a secondary job where at times I sit in my vehicle for 6-8 hours overnight. Before this, i have used two large marine deep cycle batteries, connected to a 750 watt power inverter, with two lasko 200 watt space heaters, depending on the need I would turn one or both on. Both would last approximately 3 hours, one 6 hours. But when the temperature drops down to teens, they were inadequate, plus the fogging of windows was a big issue when driving. This diesel heater removes any moisture from the air in the cabine, it is that hot. Feel free to hate, or compliment, ask questions etc. But keep in mind, that even though I am no longer 100 percent green for 3 months out of 12, it is still better than using fosil fuel to propel a car and waste most of it to heat. This thing barely sips any diesel on low setting . I'm gonna try to upload a few photos.
Hi im going to do the same! ordered a 2kw heater from china, currently awaiting delivery.
i plan to place it in the far right or in the right-aft part of the trunk with a heating duct to the top. I intend to box it in as well so I dont have to be that carefull dumping stuff in the trunk.
Do you have any pics of how you placed yours?
