Bob,
You need a diesel heater like John has in his garage…

I just got one for mine, just need to install it…,😂

Hey Bob - good to see you back around! Enjoy that feeling of open space, because it won't last!!! (don't ask me how I know this!)

Re the diesel heater:


I don't have one myself (yet), but apparently they are quite remarkable in their output.... you just need to make sure the exhaust is vented outside (but as per the linked video & some of his other ones, you can capture some additional heat from the exhaust pipe, if you so desire).

Run it on chip fat from the local chippy = quids in!
Cheers!
Ade.

They tend to choke up with oils other than paraffin or diesel….
