Kathleen--

Your experience seems to confirm my opinion of tankless water heaters: you have a choice wasting gas (tank heater) or wasting water (tankless heater). I've used the tankless kind a few times in industrial accommodation units at work, and don't like them. One or two of my friends also have them. You have to run the hot water full bore to get consistent water temperature, then add more cold water to get the right temperature. Trying to use the hot water at less than full flow just causes the burner to cycle on and off, resulting in alternating scalding/freezing/scalding/freezing. Then there's the advertised "benefit" of having "endless hot showers" which only encourages more waste of water.
