Is that a diesel heater? Are you planning on camping in your car during winter? Please tell us backstory.

Oops thank you for clarifying 6000 watt is the size of my solar inverter 6000-btu is the size of the heater
If it's a diesel-air heater, it's probably a 6 kW equivalent heater. That is, it puts out about the same heat as about 5 hair dryers set to "hi" but it's using the combustion of diesel to make the heat and only using a 12V fan to move the heated air, so it doesn't use much electricity. Still want to know the backstory. Are you doing this to camp in the car or something or just want the ability to drive around in the winter without using up the traction battery for cabin heating?
Also, please let us know how this setup works. I'm very interested in stuff like this.
