True but I'm also not taking a leisurely shower or bath or running a dish washer.

Being a nerd I just did the figures. It works out where the hot water heater uses .38 USD (@ $3 per gallon) of propane per hour of actual run time.

Ours runs for about a half hour a day, $5.70 for a month.

I want to know where you get these hot water heaters. Mine is a cold water heater.

And mine's just a water heater. Hmm.
