Sleeping in a car is kind of miserable because of how much air you need to warm up.
You are probably better off with some decent sleeping bags and a good 4 season tent.
Less airspace will be easier to heat
I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

You can use a catalytic heater. Just make sure it has some air space and leave some ventilation (windows cracked).

Personally I find my 30 degree Fahrenheit bags too cold. I don't feel like converting the degrees but it was too cold for me around 10 Celsius. I sleep cold though. Def. need heater.

Don't leave the car running. Crack a window............otherwise your breath will condense on every cold surface,..... windows frozen on the inside. A candle burnin will take the chill out. Piss bottle, small stove, snacks, book and some barley pop!

I read some where, that a single candle burning in your vehicle will give off enough heat.
Too keep you alive, in a snowed in car.
So 3 or 4, & your laughin', Chateau Pinto.... even sounds good.
