well the tank holds 3.8 gallons and at half load which would be 1750 watts and it's suppose to run 12 hours. so lets say 4 gallons of gas at 2000 watts would last 12 hours your looking at a consumpyion rate of ,33333333 gallons of gas per hour. give or take alittle.

I have found that at 50%, it takes about 10-12 hours to go through a full tank.
