Any thoughts how well this might work? It would mean for about 3 hours I wouldn't need to run my heater. This is an power inverter that draws it's power from my garden tool batteries.

I think a 900-1400 watt heater would drain the power tool batteries quick.
I just a 12v electric blanket to cover my legs, as the hearing stering, seats and toque keep me pretty warm. Hehe

The read out on the unit says i would get 1.7 hours with fresh batteries and the heater set at the lower setting of 750 watts. There's not a lot of space to heat in a sedan so if the thing ran 50% of the time, i'd get over 3 hours of heat. I do like your electric blanket Idea though...that'd be cozy... maybe too cozy 😴🛌

When the electric cars first came I wanted to buy a VW e-Up and put a diesel generator on the roof of it just so I could get a car without tax 😂
