Big Buddy fuel mileage

8 posts in this topic

I just pick-ed up a big buddy and wondered how long 2 1-lb cans will last ? Plan on buying the hose and hook up to 20 lb, but thought i would check on this first. Also how long do the batteries last on the blower?

On low the tanks on my buddy (regular size) last about 5 hours they are very efficient heaters IMO

# One 1lb. Cylinder: 1.5 to 6 hour

# Two 1lb. Cylinders: 3 to 12 hours

# One 20lb. Cylinder: 25 to 110 hours

# Two 20lb. Cylinders: 50 to 220 hours

I just got a big buddy too, and was wondering about the batteries as to how long the fan will go. And with the hose, do you need the regulator or filter?

I also got the plug in adapter for the fan for when I use it in the garage. The fan sure runs alot faster that way.

One 1# tank on low and I average between 3-4 hours. If it was warm I might get a little more than 4 hours. If it's 0 or negative I get about 3 hours.
