A 20# tank hold five gallons.
A gallon weighs 4.23 pounds.
The fuel in a canister weighs 1.6 pounds.
On medium a canister will last 4 hours on medium.

A 20# tank holds 21.15 pounds.
21.15 divided by 1.6 x 4 = 50.3 hours.
On low you will get about 76 hours.

Its takes about a month using it at nights and on weekends - if running constantly - less. On box it lists: 1lb cylinder - 1.5-6 hours; 1 20 lb cylinder 25-110hrs, 2 20 lb cylinders 50-220hrs.

It is rated as indoor-safe. You should still test for leaks and get a CO detector. Do not leave it running when you get to bed.

answer 3
YES but only if you use the one pount canisters. It takes two.
you can use a twenty pound tank but you need a hose and the tank must stay outdoor.
If Walmart does not have hoses you can use either the F273704 or F271803. Neither needs a fuel filter and one comes with a regulator, the other uses Buddy's internal regulator. Both can be ordered from Northern Tool or Mr. Heater.

"safe" - YES - We used to use kerosene heater but its hard to find the white kerosene in our area anymore (plus price) My husband uses this in his "man cave" in the unfinished basement workshop. In the coldest winter months in PA it takes him about a month to get through 1 tank of propane. Nice big knob for adjustments to temperature, has the "tip-over" feature to auto-shut off. No odor/fumes like the kerosene heater use your common sense around toddlers - like any heating device.

Does not include hoses for 20# tank. You need to get F271803 that attaches to the Mr. Heater quick connect which is next ti where you connect a canister. Or get the F273704 which connects to the same place you would connect the cannister. Neither of these hoses require a filter. One comes with a regulator (1803) the other does not need one as it uses the Buddy internal regulator.If Walmart dont offer them you can get them from Northern Tools or Mr, Heater.
You should not use any tank larger than 20# and you need to keep the tank outdoors.

It is excellent. But you can also use the smaller, less expensive Buddy.
It has hreeo settings, lo and med and hi only works with two cannisters.Although you can use only one canister on low it will still be working six hours later.

If you want use hi setting and a twenty pound tank, you need a hose
and you must keep the tank outdoors.
There are a number of hoses, some have regulators and need a filter so you should research this after you buy MY HEATER. This is better than the heater in my 32 cfoot RV.
