I hear ya....It was recommended we get a gas one but with no access to NG we would have to rent a LP tank. That may be the way we will go as the wife wants a gas stove rather than electric. Was told a lot of people are buying tanks and putting them in the ground. By the figures we were quoted it would take 40 to 50 years to break even buy to rent. The only advantage was being able to buy gas from whoever not stuck with one supply company. Also once put in the ground it's yours if anything goes wrong over time.
