The 16.4 oz propane bottle contains 1.02 pounds of propane.
1.02 lbs propane equals 16.320 oz
16.320 oz equals 22.032 BTU’s.
The RMC-8001SS has two settings, maximum and minimum
The Max setting is rated at 8,000 BTU hour.
22.032 divided by 8,000 equals 2.754 or 2-3/4 hours
The Min setting is rated at 4,500 BTU hour.
22.032 divided by 4,500 equals 4.896 or 4.8 hours

One 16.4 ounce bottle will burn 22.032 BTU’s @8,000 BTU’s per hour for a period of approximately 2-3/4 hours and @ 4,500 BTU’s per hour for a period of approximately 4.8 hours.

### Propane turbo heater. After awhile why does it start to burn eyes and nose?

Hi Eric

It sounds like the heater is getting the air in the room so warm that it's making your eyes and nose hurt. That can be from dryness, from heat, or from combustion products.
Depending on the partucular model, you can try to:
1. Turn the set temperature down.
2. Turn the turbo fan to a lower setting.
3. Turn the feed valve from your propane tank to a slower feed. At some point, you should be able to throttle the amount of fuel burning in a period of time to where the heat is more bearable.
4. If you're smelling fuel, or overt burning petroleum smells, turn the unit off. This is a sign that things aren't burning right.
Last, but probably most important. If you are running a unit like this inside, make sure you have windows open. Please take me seriously here - installed propane furnaces have heat exchangers to pull in fresh air, heat it, and pass that air into your house. A propane heater burning inside your house is burning your inside oxygen and, depending on the flame quality, dumping Carbon Dioxide or, worse, Carbon Monoxide, into your house. You can end up dead pretty quickly, especially from Carbon Monoxide poisoning, and you'll likely be feeling fine right up to the time you pass out. These types of heaters are meant more for outside use, so please, if you absolutely feel you must run it inside, keep windows open and have a fan running. You're playing with your health

Good Luck!

### Grill won't heat up above 200 DEGREES with a nearly full tank

Try replacing the regulator and hose, not very expensive and fairly easy to do. If that doesn't help, let me know.

### Empire corcho ventless propane wall heater 15000 btu

LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.

### PROCOM QL300TYLA

The QL300 has a range of 20,000 to 30,000 btus. That shouldn't be too big for your 300 square foot room with high ceilings and a loft. It has a thermostat, so it will shut off when the room gets warm. 1 pound of propane contains about 21,000 btus, so you will be burning 1 to 1.5 pounds each hour that the stove is running.
