    Burned just about 2 tons. Picked up another ton this week, so that makes 2 tons on hand.

    I figure we will still need at least 1 -2. Tons in addition to what we have now.

    Approx. 2.5 tons gone, 1.5 tons in the shed. I think I will have to get another ton or so to last until April or May. Whenever this cold temp. goes away.

    One ton through the stove and four tons still in the garage. The great news is I've burned zero oil, but I do wave to the oil delivery guys as they fill up my neighbors' oil tanks! :p

    I've burned one ton since October. I'll go into town tomorrow to buy another ton, there's a lumberyard ten miles from me that keeps pellets in stock year 'round, so there is no need for me to keep more than a ton on hand at any time.

    Been burning Cleanburn pellets in our Santa Fe since it was installed mid Oct, I counted 15 bags left out of the first ton, about time to order more.
    We love our stove. While it is never very cold here, it is hardly ever warm and it is very damp. This is our first Winter without active
    mold growth.

    Had been burning an average of a bag a day till mid December, now hitting bag and a half with temps stuck below average In the valley. Warm up on the way so should get back to around a bag or so. Have not touched the propane or electric heat. Two tons in the basement and one in the shed should make it without a problem as the days are getting longer and should start to warm up in late February.

    Came into winter with a ton of Okanagan. 16 bags left. This is the first season I didn't stock up, normally I have 3 or 4 t before the Fall but this year was too busy with other things to deal with pellets but I will have another ton here before I run out.

    Stove was set at 2-2 / 5-4-1

    Gone through about 1 ton, have 2.5 on hand. Should make it but the stash will be completely depleted by spring.

    been burning since Aug and have just passed the 52 bag mark, and I have many tons left for 2 years worth of burning. I have to barge mine in so I have to buy in bulk to make it worth my while. I don't have a road I can drive to a home depot.
