The reason I ask is that I have an upcoming Deso (I know Deso in July is hot as a mofo), I just trying to figure if a 10 gal tank will support 6 nights of meals from this stove. Or do I need to carry two tanks? Does anyone have a similar stove and knows about how long these guys last? Any help would be sweet.
I have an 18" Partner 4burner (40,000 BTU) and while I cannot give you an hours of use estimate (done already anyway), I've had nine days/nights (breakfast/dinner/cleanup) of use so far and have 1/4 of a tank (guess) left.

Here's one way to eliminate guessing, anyway.

I find that heating dish water is what eats your propane not cooking. I have a Partner 4-burner and take two 5 lb tanks and have yet to run out on trips up to 6 days.

Thanks alot for the replies. It seems that the consensus is that two 5 gal tanks should be more than enough. This would be enough for cooking and cleanup, and redundancy in case one tank gets messed up.

If that's the route you're going, I'd recommend buying the tanks at Home Depot. I looked around and they're the least expensive ones that I've found. I think they were in the $20-30 range.

Or if you have cash to burn, check out these 'clear' propane tanks that allow you to see how much gas is left: Clear, Fiberglass 10-Lb Propane Cylinder Tank
