Default noob Turkey Fryer questions

Gathering equipment to do all grain. Was about to buy my first turkey fryer, when suddenly, like magic, there was one on the side of the road!

I ran it for 10 minutes and it seems to work fine. At least to my noob perceptions.

Just to make sure its "normal:"

1. How long does it take a normal fryer to bring 6 gallons to a boil?

This one seemed to raise 6 gallons of water by 3*F every minute (40*F outside). So, I'm guessing (212 - 152)/3 is roughly 20 minutes for mine.

How many batches(5gallon)/hours before you refill a 20 lb tank?

Just want to make sure this one is in the ballpark. Thanks. Also, any fryer/propane advice you have for a noob is appreciated.

Reason: math error
