Heating a garage workshop

Posted by charlieny (My Page) on

I would like to install an old pot belly wood/coal stove to provide heat in my garage during the winter months. My hobby is working on old cars. The question is this: Can I safely store my cars in the garage with the gas tanks topped off and fuel stabilizer added, while I have a fire going in the stove to heat the garage? If this is possible, what precautions should I be taking? Thanks, Charlie

Most fire codes, local and state, prohibit wood/coal stoves any place gasoline is present, especially garages. You may have to look into a non-flame heater,gas or electric.
