Actually one gal/hr seems low. The specs for one of the 10kw Onan
gensets that I have is 1.8 gal/hr so for a 8kw to use only one gal/hr
I'm somewhat surprised.
Everything I've heard says it takes pretty much the same energy to
create a set kw no matter the size of engine. Diesel uses less gal/hr
than gas but gas uses less gal/hr than propane or natural gas. Natural
gas is the least efficient to use but is easiest to get during a power
Our 15kw onan is setup for propane since we don't have natural gas in
