Write your question here...Can this be used inside in emergency as long as well ventilated?

The official owners manual says not to:

However, I have used it through a few hurricane power outages in my kitchen which was big enough that perhaps doesn't fall under the definition of "enclosed area." I think big rooms will probably be OK. Definitely not in a camper van or a tent though.

I hate to give bad advice so I feel like I should point out that while I have done exactly what you're asking can be done- nobody ever accused me of being brilliant. Take it for what it's worth.

Aaron included all the right caveats, but really, don't use it inside. People die that way, and carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless.
