RE: [T3] Eberspacher heater questions

There is an inner combustion chamber, with its own air intake, a motor
driven fan that the gas is sprayed into and ignited by the glow plug (till
it gets going) and there is an exaust pipe that exits into the LF fender..

Cabin air gets sucked from the car under the dash and blown with a fan OVER
the hot combustion chamber, heating the air and then into the cabin.  So the
combustion and fresh air are isolated.  If the combustions chamber cracks or
leaks in some way yes, you could get carbon monoxide in the cabin but this
is unlikely

Probably not unlikely enough to pass TODAYS safety standards though!
