I have a gas fireplace with a vent on top that came with the rack and a pipe at the bottom of the rack. I am assuming that it already has a built in burner. The back wall is measuring 20" so I was thinking about getting a vented 18" gas log to allow 1" on either side. The front has more room so I think it should be okay. Am I correct on this?

Answer:You can certainly install a set of 18 inch gas logs on the existing grate. The built in lighter you describe is known as a "log lighter" and is used to get a wood fire burning. It will not offer as random or realistic of a flame as a true gas log burner, but it can serve as a more basic alternative.

I just bought a portable fire place and it currently operates with 3 cans of crackling flame gel cans. I'd like to replace the gel cans with gas logs. The measurements for my unit is 23 inches wide, 20 high and 9 deep. Will these logs work?

Answer:Unfortunately, these gas logs are not able to be used in your fireplace. The photo of the unit indicates it is similar to the Classic Flame, Jensen, and SEI units that we carry. These fireplaces have a metal insert that is specifically designed to only use gel fuel. The insert is not sized or insulated to be able to contain gas logs. Only a completely different, gas log rated firebox could be used.

I have a working outdoor fire pit with a natural gas line. Can these logs be placed on top of lava rocks without being connected to anything?

Answer:These durable refractory logs can indeed be placed in an open fire pit. They are designed to be set up in an arrangement of your choosing and do not require a particular grate or other components.

We are looking to replace our gas logs only. We have a natural gas line, a grate, and pebbles. We just turn the gas line on and light it with a small lighter. Will these logs work in our current system? Also, our fireplace is wider in the front than in the back. What are the guidelines for log size?
By eFireplaceStore on December 5, 2014
Answer:These logs can be used with most vented systems as a universal replacement. Generally, the width of the bottom front log, 18 inches in this case, should exceed the full front width of the grate by 2 to 4 inches.

Why can you use the gas logs with only Real Fyre system?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 7, 2011
Answer:Each manufacturer is different, Peterson manufacturers their logs with their burners in mind. Due to the individual characteristics of differing manufacturer's burner system's there is no way to know how these logs will perform on another manufacturer's burner system. On the wrong burner assembly these logs can cause flame impingement. Which will result in sooting and other unpleasant byproducts of incomplete combustion.
