Default Sleeping in a tent

I was wondering if it was safe to sleep over night in a eight by eight tent with one of those small gas heaters running.

Probably not safe - carbon monoxide risk...

I would not. Look at some sleeping bags that are for cold weather. I used to have and use an LL Bean mummy bag that kept me fairly warm.

I would say NO.

I would not use any heat source that is not vented to the outside. Even when using our Yukon Stove on hunting trips I still put a CO detector next to my cot.

The little buddy heaters website says they are safe for a tent. I’ve used one in a 6 or 8 person tent before with no issues. The tent was pretty well ventilated though it was a typical tent, mesh top with a rain fly over the top.

It is ok as long as it is ventilated.

As one stated get you a CO detector and put it near you. I’ve used this method a few times and have always woke up in the morning...

... as long as your CO detector works. I've been bass fishing in a couple thunderstorms, didn't get hit by lightning. Doesn't mean it's safe or smart to do.

During my stint as a scoutmaster in Oklahoma, I had the boys wear longjohns, socks and a knit cap or facemask, and sleep in a 40 degree sleeping bag with a big fuzzy blanket and a pillow. With that gear they were good down into the teens.
