A couple different ones but seemingly all the same except for the sheet metal cover and rated capacities. I'm off to the garage to test fire this latest one to see if it'll burn NG.

    That is interesting how they are listed.

    They mix things up in the Description. Typical for China sellers.

    I guess a person needs to really do some homework to make sure they know what they are ordering.

    I buy a lot of electronics from china, And I always buy a sample to test, because their description rarely makes sense in English.

    They may call LP NG because it is made from "wet" natural gas.


    Very Interesting, I hope all comes out good for You.

    Well, go figure! This one works running NG! So pleased I don't need to go through anymore challenging communications with seller. For what it's worth, I did visit a couple of the Chinese manufacturers websites and they all list these heaters as available in LP or NG varieties, so they must know there is a difference. But why this one works and the other one refused to I am not clear. At any rate I've got a dedicated outside mobile LP unit and an NG unit in the garage all for a total of $150 including shipping.... I'm happy with the outcome.... finally.

    That is great.

    Please report any problems that you have if any. That could help others.

    They look like they would be great for RV or Camping travel.


    Enjoy.
