you probably have a 10psi regulator on the tank. they make a 5psi high pressure regulator to go at the tank. this is recomended for temps that get down to 20below or less. make sure regulators are newer than 1996.

LOOK OUT there guy. Natural gas runs from 4.5 to 10 inches water colum MAX. Propain runs a whole lot higher at the 14 to 16 water columb area. The tryed and true folded manometer can let you adjust it and they are real easy to make if you can borrow one for a day. All they are is a folded plastic tube with gradations about 1/2 inch apart. You add the marks on the two sides of the tube and that is how you get your "inch' of water. Used them for years in the field when I worked on resteraunt equipment. You may want to have your furnace guy check this out cause you could have a regulator that is going bad. The little coil spring to adjust it gets weak or the diaphram gets stiff. You don't want to mess with mother nature or propane. jeffcat
