I have one of those Mr. Heater's also. I think it's called Mr. Buddy or something like that. I haven't had a reason to take it out of the box yet.

They have a built-in CO detector on them. It wouldn't hurt to have an extra detector nearby though.

I bought a 12' hose with a regulator on it and a little fuel filter for it. The guy at Family Farm & Home, where we bought it, suggested getting those two extra things. I like the idea of using the 12' hose so that the propane tank can be outside while the heater is running inside.

Very interesting to play with, though perhaps not an actual heating solution. Thanks!

I doubt the OP is coming's been over a year and a half.....

And...the human body gives off more heat than a candle....

So...putting a naked woman in the room would give more heat than the candle....and be a lot more fun to look at....not to mention being more eco friendly.


Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
