I've got one of those campers types 3,000 BTU heater. I was out on a job
this last week, the first day I did about two hours of work in the back of
my van, and froze to the core. The next day I bought the heater, and hung it
from a wire from the ceiling. Sure made all the difference in comfort.
I remember from some where they run 8 hours on a 16.0 ounce tank, on full
blast. Can't give you a quote.
The size of heater would help!!
Propane has 91,500 BTU per gallon if I remember. How many gallons in a
propane tank? 3-4? If there is 3 gallons of propane in the tank it would run
a 91,500 BTU heater for 3 hours at full output. ~45,000 BTU heater would run
Do the math.
<< What is the approx burn time for a "BBQ" size propane tank on a propane
heater at max output? >>
At our house it seems to be between the time the steak is warm to the time it
is raw. Especially if there are guests...
My eyes. Ever watch what is sold and what goes on at the fill stations?
Every Sunbeam, Charbroil, Weber, etc that comes with a tank comes with a 20
pound tank. They have stacks of them for sale at Home Depot, BJ,s WalMart,
etc. The Blue Rhino exchange stations carry them exclusively in this area.
Exceptions may exist, but they are rare. Campers have larger tanks but they
are intended for stove and heater use, not outdoor grills.
Prove my assertion invalid. I may be on the low side. Could be 99.655%
Uhh. Some of the smaller campers (19 foot) like mine use 20
pounders. But certainly the rest of what you say is true.
Maybe we just aren't in the upper class group that uses 40
pound tanks for their 6 foot by 10 foot BBQ. I personally
have seen only one BBQ with anything except a 20 pound (5
gallon) tank. Ain't this fun?
