Most garages aren't air tight enough to have to worry too much, anyway.  I wouldn't stress out too much about it.  Propane appliance are set to run at ideal burn, which produces very little, to no CO. Ideal burn is 1:24 propane to air.  CO is produced by incomplete combustion of the propane, so if the unit is lean or rich CO occurs. You need to reach more than 70ppm of CO to start to feel effects, so I think even a slightly drafty garage and a brand new, well made propane heater will be just fine.  You should always have a CO detector whenever propane or natural gas is your heat source, but the panic in this tread is a little much.  I run my kilns off of propane and intentionally throw them into reduction (rich) and somehow I still live, breath and walk.

And, it does get cold as a witch's tit here in Georgia.

When you're old, fat and ugly, 50 is cold.

And drafty garages, do contribute to the cold and freaking heat .

No panic here... I guess my shop is well sealed because I absolutely have to open a window or the door a bit or else the fumes get pretty strong and headache-causing within a few minutes after lighting it up.  It heats up pretty well, though and a slow turning ceiling fan keeps the heat circulated fairly evenly.

Sorry, yes, propane produces mainly CO2 but this can kill you too, I wouldn't take a chance.  People have even died in drafty tents when using heaters like this.  Better to be proactive and have a good margin of safety, follow manufacturers recommendations.

And, the headaches are from CO2. Thousands of ex-Navy submariners can attest to the high CO2 headaches when our scrubbers went down. Not quite as deadly as CO, and will let you know when it's high (by the headache). Lore has it that it also causes premature gray hair. Hey, when you had to breathe the same recycled farts from ~144 men for ~75 days at a time, you learned about these things.

I have gotten woozy running bikes in here to long without "both" doors fully open.  So it will be good for that.

Not to belabour the point but this occurred in Vancouver today, 13 people rushed to hospital, two in serious condition one of which is expected to die, 17 poisonings in Vancouver during this cold snap:
