DIESEL FUEL CONSUMPTION CHART

This chart approximates the fuel consumption of a diesel generator based on the size of the generator and the load at which the generator is operating at.  Please note that this table is intended to be used as an estimate of how much fuel a generator uses during operation and is not an exact representation due to various factors that can increase or decrease the amount of fuel consumed.  Day = 24 hours, Week = 24 X 7, Month = 24 X 7 X 4.3 weeks or 30.1 days per month.
