Answer: 
yes it will, but as I have stated before, to get your moneys worth don't do an exchange of the tank. They only fill the tank with around 16 lbs of gas. Take it to a place that fills them and you will get your 20lbs worth for around the same price.

Answer: 
The heater has a fan along with a high limit switch for safety reasons, so it needs some type of electrical source to run it, which means it will have a continuous spark and no need for manual ignition.

Answer: 
No manual ignition. You can run it with a small generator if necessary. Needs AC to run the combustion blower fan as well as the igniter system.
Could possibly run it from an inverter / DC system. I don't know the watt requirement but it cant be much. Maybe 100 to 150 watts? Contact the manufacturer or maybe there are specs on HDs website.

Answer: 
Propane torpedo heaters need constant electric to run. The ignition is constant and you will hear a clicking sound at all times it is on. This unit does however not use many amps, so you can use a small portable generator which can be picked up for around $100.

Needs some fresh air supply. Definitely needs venting, and also doesn't have an oxygen depletion sensor. Burns in yellow-ish which indicates it puts out some CO as well. I can be used indoors in a leaky garage for sure, otherwise outside only.

Hi Fred.
I do not know why they just list square footage unless it is for standard 8 foot ceilings. To get square feet simply multiply length times the width. To calculate cubic feet you have to multiply the length times the width times the height.

www.calculator.net This should lead you to the calculator to figure it out for you. If that does not work (which it should) www.calculator.net/btucalculator.html
It is hard to figure it out when you have the heater in a garage or building that has an open ceiling but this should help you out
Hope this helps you Fred

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quality product Easy to assemble,easy to start, quick heat up of the garage... April 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, no fumes. The heater does what it needs to do.. make heat. No diesel or kerosene fumes to choke on. A few drawbacks is that it has no "off-ON" switch on the heater. plug it in, and the fan starts up. Having to unplug it every time is a bit of a hassle. It also caused some confusion with my brother in law. He was not expecting it to start blowing air when he plugged it in. The gas flame does not come on until you turn that on with a valve on the heater, and I am Ok with that. I'll add an IN-line switch on the end of the extension cord to get around the no power switch deal. The other issue is that there is no cover or reactor disc as with diesel or kero heaters. If doing woodwork, a cut off end of lumber can end up in the heater and light up pretty easily.. Got to use care. Other then that, it's a nice little work area heater. Got us thru the big freeze here. March 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective unit Not good! The unit would not turn off and so the electronic ignighter kept sparking. I ended up having to return it. March 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Propane, portable heater! It had to be worked on, the fan would not turn, a screw head was in the way, easy fix, but lousy quality control. Once it was done, 40 minutes later, the little unit worked flawlessly. It easily heats a 30 foot x 36 foot garage with open attic and no insulation, bringing it up from 30 degrees to near 70, with the addition of a ceiling fan to move the air. It is comfortable to work in about 30 minutes, I turn it off when it reaches 70 at floor level,and turn on two 1500 watt (5200 btu's) electric heaters and they will then hold the heat at better than 60 degrees for 2-3 hours. Turn on the propane heater, 20 minutes, back near 70. Works great! December 8, 2015
