What Is the Fuel Consumption Per Hour in a Diesel Generator

by Starlight Generator dieselgeneratortech

This varies widely on many different factors.

 

Manufacturer of the engine

 

Size of the generator

 

Load at which you are testing these values

 

Generally speaking, larger generators are more efficient when comparing their gallons per kVA, same with the gallons per hour. Please note that you should try not to operate a diesel generator at less than 50% load. Diesel engines operate better on load, operating without load or with a low load doesn't allow the engine to reach it's maximum operating temperature and you will have many issues which will lead to a short product life.

 

The fuel consumption of the generator is mainly considered in the following two aspects: the fuel consumption rate and the fuel consumption rate of different brands of diesel generator sets are different.

 

The size of the load, the load on the throttle large consumption of more, on the other hand, the load is smaller relative to the fuel consumption.

 

Most generator manufacturers use Gr / KW.H, which means how many grams of (G) oil a kilowatt per hour consumes, and then replaced by a liter of (L) to find out the cost of fuel consumption per hour.

 

The specific calculation method of diesel generator fuel consumption is as follows: one liter of diesel oil is equal to about 0.84-0.86 kg (1L=0.8-0.85KG). Most diesel-generator manufacturers use Gr / KW.H, which means how many grams of (G) oil a kilowatt per hour consumes, and then replaced by a liter of (L) to get an idea of the cost of your fuel consumption per hour.
