I suspect you are referring to charcoal heaters in regard to the 30 minute wait period.
Charcoal heaters would slowly fill the car with carbon monoxide, and cars so equipped were required to be placarded with warning placards. I'm not seeing thirty minutes... the placards I'm finding photos of say either "three minutes", or "a few minutes." Carbon monoxide is odorless, and the second man was needed in case the man who went in the car was overcome.
