I used to burn about 70 lbs. every 24 hours with my Mark III - that figure would drop to every 16-18 hours on a below-zero morning in January.
ok thats kinda what i figured, hoping to get her down to about a bag a day, that would get us about 2 months out of a skid.
now as far as actually burning it, compared to wood, do you recommend more or less combustion air?
