    Four bags short of a ton because the wife was heating the back room for a week and a half. If not for that...would have probably been 35 bags,

    Wholly cow some of you guys burn a lot! First year with pellet stove, burned through 6 test bags of various brands, just loaded 3rd bag of 1 1/2 tons of eagle valley, they are the closest pellet plant to us. I hope this will last me through the winter. Glad to be living in a temperate part of the world :)

    Most of us burn 24/7 for 6-7 months. 1 1/2 tons might get me through the shoulder seasons, then I would freeze.

    I average about 200 +- bags a year

    Just passed the half ton mark. Have not turned the dead dinosaur burner on yet. Heating 2500 ft2, keeping it at 72 and loving every minute of it. Last year I spent about 2000 bucks on Dino.
    Can't wait till the oil,company fires me!
