This video is a remake of my original review of the Mr. Heater Big Buddy with 20 lb propane tank configuration. As the name suggests I’m going to discuss how to connect a Big Buddy heater to a large 20-pound tank using the Big Buddy Heater Hose and a Mr. Heater filter.

how long will a big buddy heater run on a 20 lb tank

Also, I’m going to answer a question I get all the time which is: “how long will a big buddy heater run on a 20 lb tank.” Not only that, but I’ll dig into the number behind how much propane the Mr. Heater Big Buddy uses on low, medium, and high as well as how long each setting will burn with both 1 and 20 lb tanks.

I think every homestead should have at least one source of backup heat in the winter. A good propane space heater is hard to beat. And in my opinion, the best propane heater for the money is the Mr. Heater Big Buddy (Mr. Heater MH18B).
