    So as you may or may not know, we are in the process of changing over our water heater and stove/oven to Propane. We are all electric at the moment.

    So the plumber came over and ran all the indoor gas lines and installed the water heater. We do not have our tanks buried yet so the Propane guy we hired hooked a 20lb tank to the line and fired up the water heater. So the tank lasted just over 10 days for 2 people, showers, cloths washing, dishes, guests staying a couple days, etc.

    That’s less than 1/2 gallon a day. So two 1,000 gallon tanks with 800 gallons each should last a bit.

    Now to get a couple inline gas heaters and test them. I wonder how much gas we would have used with an inline?
