Mr. Heater Fuel Filter for Buddy Heaters, Model# F273699
Mr Heater filter
Purchased this filter couple yrs. back after having trouble with Mr. Heater unit not wanting to light. Ended up purchasing new Mr. Heater, but installed this filter on new unit. Installed easily and I guess it's working fine - no problems starting new unit. I would recommend this unit to everyone purchasing Mr. Heater units - to much water in supplier propane tanks.

Buddy heater fuel filter
I had issues keeping my Buddy Heater lit last fall during the Michigan deer hunt and ordered a thermocouple for it from Northern and had it sent to my brother-in-laws in Michigan as I live in AZ. He installed this for me and a friend of his recommended a fuel filter. I found it easily at Northern and sent it to my brother-in-law, who also installed it. This is a great situation for me to just send them and they get installed! Result: warm deer blind next November!!

Great quality, better price
Looked all over for one of these. This one's not only great quality, but the best price I could find on the net.

neat little device
This little fuel filter expands the usage of my Buddy heater by using a larger 20 or 30lbs. propane bottle with an extension hose instead of the little 1lbs. throw away ones.

protects like a champ, even with heavy use
Last year, our ancient gas heater failed and we were quoted about $1500 to replace it and the venting to meet current codes. At first, we used our Mister Heater Big Buddy Heater for emergency heat. But it has worked out so well, it's all we've used since last Fall, often running 24x7. I'm certain that's way higher than typical use. And we've used bulk tanks most of the way, so we were careful to install these filters immediately. It's amazing how much money we've saved on both electricity and our gas bills! We haven't had a lick of trouble in spite of this atypically heavy and constant use, between 5-10 lbs. a day. And that's the point of these filters. Luck had nothing to do with it.

Relatively inexpensive insurance
Hopefully, I'll never know if this is a necessary propane accessory. I have run a bottle through it, and no problems with my MrHeater Big Buddy yet. I'm sure it catches debris that could cause problems in the small orifices of a propane system. On the other hand, I have run propane heaters in the past with no filter, and have had no problems with them either.

A Necessary Accessory
This filter will greatly prolong the life of Mr. Heater propane heaters by preventing nozzle clogs. A must-have accessory!

Mr. Heater Fuel Filter for Buddy Heaters
This filter just makes good sense for maintaining reliability in using the heater. Having this extra precaution is worth the possible failure.

This item works just as it should, youdon't have to worry about contaminates in the fuel or from the tank getting to the heater

Mr. Heater Fuel Filter
These filters are easy to install and highly recommended to protect your Mr Heater catalytic heater from debris that might come from bulk gas containers or from the connection hoses. Well worth the price to protect a good product.
