We used our Newport P9000 propane heater a fair bit last spring, and quite a bit this fall (sorry I can't be more specific than that -- they don't come with hour meters!) for weekend/vacation sailing. We fueled it with a 10 lb propane tank that also fueled our stove/oven (which gets quite a bit of use too).
With an 8-9 month season, we were still on the same 10 lb tank when we winterized. I haven't weighed the tank, but I suppose it must be nearly expended. So, at the close of our first season with it installed, I was pleased with the burn rate and with how much comfort we got out of that little heater.
