I am running and Econo I and burning about #38/day heating 1300 sqft ranch at 70-74 degrees with outside temps @ 20-40 degrees. Does this seem pretty average? What are others burning?

Thanks, Mark

Sounds about right. I think I though a bucket or so (35-40#) in a day roughly in my HyFire. it all depends on how warm you like it and how cold it is outside. We keep ours around 68-70.

Mark,
38# in 24 hrs is great. That's only a little over a pound and a half an hour. About 20,000 BTU's.

Oops, I meant every 12-14 hours or so. I put a bucket in the morning and sometimes when I get home in the evening.
But my LL holds like 150#'s.
