Gas vs. Propane

A Fish Called Wanda | Jul 15, 200809:49 AM     16

We are looking for a house right now and I am faced with a scary possibility of not having a gas line in the house. I cook professionally, and give cooking classes in my house, so living without a gas stove scares me. I called the gas company and it sounds like putting gas into a house that doesn't have a gas line right outside or at least close would be ridiculously expensive.

I know some people put a propane tank outside of their house and bring a line into the kitchen. If you have any experience with that, would you mind sharing what you think of it. Here are some specific questions:

1) Can you connect it to a gas stove and oven or are you limited to a gas cook top and an electric oven? I am asking because I really like gas broilers :)

2) Does propane feel any different than gas?

3) How often do you have a refill your tank if you cook every day?

4) How much does it cost to put this system in?

5) How much a refills?

Thank you!
