    use a small gas heater , one that uses 2'6 bottles stored in the back , i use one at home and in the store in my unit to kep the cold and damp out , pretty frugal and you can keep a tab on the cost aswell

    Howdo Poss, and welcome .
    I have a 6 foot rad fed off the heating in the house, but that just unchills the garage.
    I also have a clip on heater that's supposed to live on the rim of a bottle. Just imagine the element of a super ser,in a metal frame.
    I stuck it to something else, and use a 47kg bottle. The bigger the bottle, the less it costs. I generally get through 2 in a winter, the heater uses about .8kg per hour on full chat, but once garage is warmed I knock heater down.

    I do know of a supplier of this particular heater and gas at sensible prices.

    How good is your insulation in garage?

    You could try one of these;

    But any gas powered fire needs good ventilation or you end up very sleepy/dead and everything ends up dripping wet.
