### How much fuel does a kVA generator need?

Once you know how many hours you want it to run for, you can work out how many litres of fuel this equates to using the rough rules of thumb: For sets >150 kVA rating, the number of litres per hour used is approximately 1/5th of the rating of the set in kVA. (e.g. a 500 kVA unit will use approximately 100 L/h).

**How much fuel does a 35 kW generator use?**

For example, a 20 kilowatt unit would burn about 3.44 gallons per hour, and a 35 kilowatt unit would burn 6.1 gallons per hour.

## How do I calculate fuel consumption per Litre per hour?

Simple Method

- Formula To Estimate Maximum Engine Fuel Consumption. Gallon Per Hour (GPH) = (specific fuel consumption x HP)/Fuel Specific Weight.
- 300-hp Diesel Engine Example. GPH = (0.4 x 300)/ 7.2 = 105/7.2 = 16.6 GPH.
- 300-hp Gasoline Engine Example. GPH = (0.50 x 300)/ 6.1 = 150/6.1 = 24.5 GPH.
