propane tank size?

Question

tomfromblaine

all right guys I finally got tired of all the 1 pounders laying around so I went and got a big buddy and hose attachment with a filter but when it came to chooseing a tank I got lost, I would like heat at least for a couple of days before having to refill, I will be heating a clam 6800. I'm pretty sure the 5# wont do it, but that 20# is lookin' like a space eater. what size are you useing? thanks in advance to any input. grin.gif

I use a #20 in my yukon. Just put the tank outside and run the hose in to the heater.

I have a 10 and a 20 lber. If I had to do it all over again I'd not go with the 10. The 20 really doesn't take up much more room and it'll save you from refilling after a couple days use.

20lbs are more common and cost the same or cheaper that the smaller or larger tanks. You can also exchange them.

If you aren't concerned with the weight factor of pulling them by hand and you keep the tank outside of your portable the 20 lbs make the most sense to me.

I use a 10lb tank with a heater attached. I like it because it is shorter so it keeps your holes open and feet warmer and it's lighter than a 20lb tank. I think the heater works better when it's attached right to the tank instead of a hose. Especially when it's below 0 out. Hope this helps!

I'd go with the 20lb. Well I got about half dozen of them and they are free. People buy a new grill it comes with a tank. I offer to get rid of thier old grill for them and walla. I got another regulator, tank, the valves to control gas flow. Ibuild my own heaters so now just find an old gas cooking range and I got burners.

Opps kinda off subject but pay attention thoughout the yr. and ya can probably get a tank or 2 for free.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
