You got me beat Kevin. my burn times are only about 4-6 hrs, (where it's making any heat), and I just bought 20 bags of Blaschack pea @ $6.50 . i wouldn't be complaining too much.

I'm not sure, but isn't there two different types of MPD one for wood and one for coal?

The one on my mothers stove has a hole in the middle so that no matter how closed it is there is still a way for the co to escape.

Hmmm. I use a MPD and did not know there were two types. I like to keep it basically closed when I burn. If it is warm, then I might open it up 10 to 15% to increase the draft.
