Pyroil Interior Heater
Works great but burns out every year. Think I'll try the little black steel rectangular one next. I think they are called Little buddy heater.
I would recommend this type of product to everyone on earth but this brand is garbage!

Keeps my windows clear of frost.
Bought one of these, plugged it in, and was skeptical, it is basically like a blow dryer.
I plugged it in at 10pm, and unplugged it at 8am, windows were clear (every morning prior to this I had a thick layer of frost on every window I had to spend 5 minutes scraping off in the cold.
Car was probably 10c or so inside. So its not going to keep your interior +30c inside, but better 10c, which is much better than -25c.
Today it is -20c out with a 15kph wind, I plugged it in, an hour later it was 10c in my car (measured with ir). However to be fair I plugged it in after driving the car, so it was already warm inside.
Great product, well worth the $70.

Warmer mornings always welcomed
Used one of these all last year in my extended van and what a difference.
It wasn't like have your vechicle heat on, but it certainly took the chill our of the seats and wheel.
Plus the windows wear so much easier to clean after a storm and clear most days.
I use this heater along with a electric timer to save energy and still have my van comfortable in the mornings.
Tip: run the cord through your vechicle firewall and place the end of the cord somewhere near an opening in your bumper. Makes for much easier use and a cleaner look.

Wow. Warm start to the mornings...
Love this heater. Have it on a timer from 2:30am until I unplug it in the morning. Keeps snow off all windows. Interior is warm and cozy. I find my morning drive more relaxed now that I'm not freezing for initial 10 minutes++ of driving.
Installation requires you to run a wire through the firewall. To help here I ran a spare piece of stiff conduit from the engine through the firewall into the interior of the car. Then I taped the heater wire to the conduit. Then pulled the conduit back from the engine side. Voila! Used some tie wraps to keep the wire away from fan blade. Out around the headlight and I was done.
Really love this heater. Grab one.

I bought one 3 years ago and it is still going strong.....I put it on a timer and come out to a warm vehicle. I don't even have to scrape windows because they are clear. I just bought one for my other vehicle....putting it in this weekend...very easy to install
