    How long will they last depends on two things. How cold it gets in your area and how long it stays cold. Two, what kind of heat is using the propane, some are definitley more efficient than others.

    If propane in your area is 2.50 per gallon it will cost $ 675 to fill one up if it is entirely empty. I have no idea what propane costs in your area. Propane tanks are generally measured in gallons not pounds.

    The tanks should last many years. If you want to know how long the propane lasts, it depends on how well insulated the house is. As for the cost, prices change, usually up.
