Gas dryer question

Do all models of gas dryers use similar amounts of gas. Of course high heat would use more than low heat.

Not sure on amount of gas used but all gas dryers work the same. Each gets to temperature and than cycles . Dryer gets to about 160 and than cools to about 100 to 120 and than repeats

The dryers are usually rated between 22,000-25,000 btu's of gas consumption. The more clothes there are and the degree of dampness determines how much total gas is consumed.

For the most part..... pound for pound of laundry.... the consumption is similar between models of gas dryer.

Thank you, we are just in need of replacing our dryer and it is fed by a 1/2 gas line but seems to work. Just was worried that a new one might have issue with the gas supply.

If dryer is working why replace? New dryers are not any more efficient Than old ones.

Not to handy with appliances myself and had one person out with no luck solving the problem. Units are almost ten years old so thought it might be time.
