It aint leaking. I have power for the winter and have used not even a third of my propane since sept. We spent 6 months or so with no power and had to fill up propane every 4 weeks or so just to run the fridge.

I am sure some fridges are better than others.

Something isn't right. Research says a 20# (not gallon) tank should last about 120 days.


I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left

If you're just driving for the day in moderate weather conditions, set the refrigerator temp to a lower temp the night before and turn it off while driving then turn it on when you stop at the end of the day. The refrigerator insulation and frozen food in the freezer should keep things cold enough in that short time.
