    I am saving 8 bags (4-8 days) of pellets just in case my furnace dies. I burned almost 3 tons, when the temps got near 0 F I used two bags a day. My neighbor with a hot air stove, burned 4 tons and had to go out and buy another.

    I've got a Harman PB105 pellet boiler and I started using my pellets in August to heat my DHW. I'm going to buy 10 ton this Spring and that should last all year.

    147 Barefoots left out of 300. Won't even need a ton to make through NEXT year. Do I need to re-up to maintain pig status, or am I grandfathered in by buying almost 2 years worth in first place?

    I too have a Harman PB105 pellet boiler that I fired for the first time the first Sat. in March of 08. It has been used for a complete year now including all summer for DHW using 416 bags of pellets. (8.32 tons) I puchased 14 tons of pellets last April-May, PA pellets, probably not the best pellet from what I read but I would purchase them again for $199.00 per ton.

    Started with two tons.

    Did not get stove until January 13th.

    Have one ton plus 12 bags left. Average use of 0.71 bags per day. ( Used wood boiler some also.)

    Should have 40 or so bags left over.

    Three tons ordered for next year, early Spring purchase through pelletsales.com.

    Started with 200 bags and down to about 80 now.

    Been burning pellets part-time and letting the furnace run more lately,
    so I expect to burn through about 30 more bags before I shut the
    stove down for the season.

    I normally use the stove from Oct. thru April, but have used it in Sept. and May, even June a few times. I started last September with 69 bags and currently have 25 left. I am hoping to have 10 bags left by the end of April.

    I started with 3 tons, 20 bags left
    If the outside temps stay mild these should last me untill the end of the season
