How many BTUs per hour can I expect from a tank?

BTUs per hour is a rating associated with an appliance. For example, on an outdoor grill, the "higher" the setting of the grill burner knobs, the greater the demand in BTUs per hour on the cylinder. The "lower" the setting on the burner knobs, the lower the demand in BTU's per hour. A single gallon of propane should last approximately 3 hours if the demand is 30,000 BTUs per hour. It should last approximately 4.5 hours if the demand were reduced to 20,000 BTUs per hour.
