Also, Fauve, can you tell me what neiborhood in NYC would most remind you of Weston
Gosh, I honestly can't think of any. There are a ton of neighborhoods like it in Cali, Vegas, Az, Texas, etc., but NYC, none...maybe that's why it's called the 6th borough!

As for gas, we have a gas stove and Amerigas comes once a year to fill the tank. It's a large tank and heats our water heater as well. It would never be approved in a subdivision, though.

Years ago, when my parents lived in Hialeah they had a gas stove and heater. 2 large tanks next to the house in the backyard, one tank changed yearly. They used City Gas of Hialeah.

Well, we bought a 500 gallon tank (which is way more than you would need for just a cook stove), and that cost about $450. Then they charged $95 to deliver and set it and run a line, then, of course it cost $1.85 per gallon to FILL it.

I would say that if you got a much smaller tank - oh say, 200 gallons, that it would last a very, very, very long time - probably as much as two years depending on how much you cook and how much you use the oven, which uses considerably more gas, I'm told.

These are Missouri prices. I could not even begin to guess what things cost in the rest of the country. Best to call your local propane dealer and ask for an estimate.

Thanks everyone for all the good info. I've done some more researching, and I've discovered several things:
1) like it was mentioned, you may not be able to set up a propane tank, given your HOA
2) setting up an alternative system seems kind of counter-intuitive, and like a hassle
3) if it comes to it, I could get a range that uses an induction system, which is infinately better than a reg. electric range, and may be a very good alternative to gas, esp. in a non-gas environment

At least I know some options are available. I still have my mom's old electric range in my mind, which is why I've been so petrified about going electric. But I think an induction range would be awesome too.

Well - I think that I would go with dual fuel, so it may even last longer - thank you!
