    Just opened my fiftieth bag this morning. One ton down and probably four more tons to go. Still beats the heck out of oil though.

    First season burning so not sure how much I'll go through, 28 down with 118 left. Out of the box store pellets I've tried FSU seem to last the longest per bag so I've been stocking up on those when I find them.

    My first full season too. 47 bags of FSU's so far during the early season, may burn some higher priced softies mid winter though.

    Have used only 12 bags so far (out of 2T). My P38 supplements my Geothermal. I fire it up when temps get below 30. Looks like I will be running full time for a while as this current arctic blast has no end in sight.

    52 bags in the hopper so far.

    Burning La Crete's clean and hot. Testing this season with only dropping the night time temp down a few degrees so my turn around in the AM won't take as long. Jury still out may go back to lower nighttime temps, and a cooler bedroom.

    I'm about 55 or 60 bags in. Mostly Cubex, but the Hamers have come out for the frosty days/nights.

    36 bags so far. Last year at this time I had burned 31. Anyone compare their usage thus far compared to last year? Just curious because I thought this November was colder than last but the place I go for heating degree days said last November was cooler.

    This year we fired up the pellet stove in September last year October.
    Also this year we used 9 more bags in November than last. Definitely colder this November for me.

    I'm at around 80 bags so far. I usually burn about 7 tons.

    I live in a pretty cold area and started burning in October.

    I'm also on my 12th bag. First year with a p43 only burning 10 hours a day to supplement the Propain. Need to burn 500 gallons of the stuff to keep my discounts. Heating 2200 sq ft and hot water. On schedule to burn a ton and a half of pellets and about 550 gallons of Propane for the year. Mik_Kane at 26,584 pellets per pound that's a little more than 7 tons!! You must have a very BIG house!! LOL :)

    Did you count the ones that fell on the floor? It doesn't count unless you burn them.

    45 bags down.

    Just stacked 2 Tons of Barefoots in the basement yesterday. Nothing worse than using that first bag off the perfectly stacked pallet. Sets off some OCD behaviors.
