    Question:

    We are planning to replace a coal stove in our family room with a 25,000 BTU propane freestanding stove and want to know how much fuel will be consumed in an hour. We want to see how many hours of burning time will be provided by a 70 gallon tank. Someone told us that a 30,000 BTU unit will burn a gallon an hour which seems excessively expensive. Thanks for your help!



    Answer:

    Propane (LP) contains 90,000 BTU's per gallon. So a 30,000 BTU unit would burn for 3 hours on a gallon. More information at http://chi.hearth.com/addcalc.html
