5 gal. propane tank

5 posts in this topic

I just bought the 5 gal. tank for my heater and the 5 ft hose so I don't need all those 1 gal tanks and the pain that comes with them. Do I need to buy a fuel filter to go with this?

It is highly recommended. I had a buddy use a 20#er on his buddy heater and he did not use the filter and it got plugged up. Cheap insurance.

I have used this set up for over 20 years and have never had a problem.

My 2 cents worth, However I am sure a filter would not hurt though.

What heater? Mr heater reccomends using the filter with the big and little buddy. No filter is necessary if you have the heater cooker.

I've never used a filter with propane even with 100s hooked to Hall Burner that my BIL made in his shop.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
