I was wondering about that, I'm using a regular 20lb cylinder. I guess I had better check on one of the big ones.

I put a new 2o lb. Cylinder on my 20 superior yesterday and it only ran for 10 minutes before the tank froze to the ground. You can put the tank in a tub of hot or even warm water, and it will run a lot longer. On my 25 reid, i cool it with water from the spigot on shop, and i run a hose from the cylinder discharge to the propane tank and let it run over the tank while engine is running. Works great. My buddy dave mccray brought me 2 100 lb cylinders this weekend. I am getting them filled this week. What a pal. Even made up new hoses with the fittings for me.
