If you can smell the fumes like that, DON'T USE IT! Can you say 'Carbon
monoxide'? I don't know how your heater should be vented, but it's just like
engine exhaust, you wouldn't want much of that in the cab. If you notice
'flu like' symptoms (flushed cheeks, sore throat,...) after driving with the
heater on, see a doctor! Don't ignore it, it can get serious in a big hurry!
I lost a group of friends to an improperly vented gas heater in a camper
once, good thing I didn't go on THAT trip!
