You can use fuses with 36 volt rating on a 12 volt system.
The voltage rating on the fuse is the max voltage you can subject the fuse to and have it reliably cause an uneventful open circuit when it blows.
If you put a 36 volt fuse on a 250 volt system, when the fuse blows it could create a sustained arc, which would cause a fire or it could explode injuring people or damaging other near by equipment with hot flying fuse bits.
