Are there any typical propane usage guidelines? We camped this summer and fall with our [email protected]
(no extra S). We haven't boondocked yet, so typically use electricity for the Alde. Since our fridge is electric-only, that means cooking is almost the only use for propane.
We did camp in 25 degrees in November and needed propane for our Alde. Our inexpensive in-line propane gauge, at the tank, indicated we were somewhere less than 1/2 full. Since previously we used so little propane, we were paranoid of running out of heat in the night.... After the trip, I pulled the tank out and sloshing it around, it felt over 1/2 full. Measuring it on our bathroom scale was 30#. Calculating a full tank: 15# + (80% 20#) = 31 lbs.
So we do know the inexpensive in-line gauges are not very accurate.
How much mileage do others get on their propane?
I appreciate that Verna keeps an extra propane tank in her truck, but at the rate we seem to be using propane, an extra disposable cylinder might be all that we need to carry.
