I have seen 12 Volt electric golf cart heaters listed on T-bay and other sites, has anybody tried one of them? Since they seem to be a heating coil and a fan in a box, I assume that they would still work on 6 Volts, just with half the heat and half the fan speed.

Those heaters need a full 12 volt to get anything out of them at all. Putting 6 volt to them would make it useless.
Mark, If my memory is correct the model T generator can only produce around 100 watts so 300 would be too much for the generator
A 12 volt electric heater on 6 volts will produce 1/4 the heat not 1/2. I doubt they put out much heat to begin with and I suspect on 6 volts it would be negligible.
My dad bought 1 to defrost the windshield of his old chevy pickup and it was JUNK.And I do mean to emphasize that in capitals!.
Now if you go to the Buggies Unlimited website and look up golf cart heaters there, you will find 1 that mounts to a propane can that is like a miniature Mr Heater. That would knock the chill off in a T purty well I would think.
I agree with Mack. This fall, I purchased one for my Polaris Ranger with a cab and it would not even take the chill off if the outside temp was in the 40's. A total waste of money! I disassembled it- kept the 12v fan and threw the rest away.
Thanks, guys, I figured as much.
