Still burning... Let's see if the jacket helps at all. The insulation put a big dent in consumption, down to about 17 lbs per day right now. I'm still messing with settings trial and error for a week to see how low I can get. I know I burn 12 lbs per day on timer, so anything close to 12 I will be very happy!

You will have a hard time getting under 15 lbs per day, especially using the tankless coil.
