How long (reasonably) does a tank of CNG last?

I was going to convert our stove to propane. But I found out that it would void any insurance policy if done. So what I thought was going to be a slight cost ($300) conversion (not including the locker etc.), has turned into a replace the whole system stove included.

I'm wondering if I should keep the stove, for a season or two before tackling that issue.

So, the question is, how long does a tank last?

We're a couple doing coffee in the morning, sandwiches for lunch, and cooking for dinner (simple stuff, spaghetti, pan fried chicken, veggies, etc). We have also just purchased a pressure cooker (we've heard this helps reduce gas usage). We also have a magma grill for burgers, steaks, and such.

I realize that filling the tank would be in MD, Virginia, and Miami, w/ no fill up in the bahamas.
