Hereof, can you use propane in a natural gas fireplace?
Gas Logs are either made to burn Natural Gas or Liquid Propane. So you cannot use a Natural Gas burner with Liquid Propane or visa versa. You must make sure you order the correct burner for the type of gas you will be using. The major differences are in the burner orifices and safety pilot choices.
Likewise, how do you hook up a propane tank to a gas fireplace? The propane is fed to the fireplace via a gas hose line. The hose line is attached to the propane tank with a gas hose pressure regulator valve. The regulator valve is installed by screwing it into the propane tank valve. This makes propane tanks easy to replace once they have run out of fuel.

In Propane, there is about 91,500 BTU in a gallon. For the equivalent in a gas insert or gas fireplace, a large could use about 40,000 BTU/hour and in this case would cost about $0.40/hour to operate for natural gas and about $1.31/hour for propane.
