Staff Answer
This unit uses 1.54 gal/hr at full load and a standard 20 lb propane tank has 4.72 gallons of propane.
If you are running at full load and you have 2 - 20 lb tanks you will get 6.13 hours of run time.
Typically you want to run these units at 1/2 load which uses .91 gal/hr and can increase your run time to 10.37 hours.

The Briggs and Stratton PowerNow unit would produce Carbon Monoxide and is required to be installed outside in an open area. This specific unit will need to be 5 feet away from combustible material and 3 feet away from non-combustible materials.
