Does a 6 gallon Suburban SW6DE HWH take a lot of LP

First of all thanks to all who contributed to solving my brake problem a couple of weeks ago. Now I would like to know if using my hot water heater on LP only is going to be costly. I know it will matter how much hot water I use, so here is a typical scenario. Initial heating of cold water at campsite>>>washing my wife and my dishes three times>>>one shower each>>>a few washes of the hands during the day.

We have a six gallon hot water tank and it is so inexpensive to run we just leave it on all the time when we are out in the motor home.
We had an electric element in it, but I took it out as it caused a pain when trying to drain and winterize the tank.
We have a 25 gallon tank and it lasts almost a full season.

Not too worry about the cost of hot water.
