Using a standard conversion factor: 100 gallons of liquid propane
converts to 378.5 liters of liquid propane **
Therefore** 378.5 liters of liquid propane
(x 270) will expand to 102195.0 liters when vaporized. 1.0 ml = 1.0
cm^{3 }and 1,000,000 cm^{3} = 1 m^{3. }
**
Therefore**, 1,000,000 ml = 1 m^{3 }
also 1,000,000 ml = 1000 liters.
Therefore, 1000 liters = 1 m^{3.}
Converting total liters to cubic meters
102195.0 liters / 1000 l/ m^{3}^{ }
= 102.2 m^{3 }vaporous propane = 100 gallons liquid propane
originally. A ratio of 1:1
Finally, calculating the “run time". for a 100 gallon tank
with a generator running at 75% load consuming 1.5 m^{3}/hr
of propane.
Restated in formula format. A 100 gallon tank (containing 102.2
m^{3 }vaporous propane), burned at 1.5 m^{3}/hr.
(rated 75% capacity) = 68 hrs. or __2.8 days__
If you use the 80% rule then that converts to 80 % of 2.8 or 2.27
days or 54.48 hours.
This can be restated in a formula as follows:
FORMULA ANSWER:
Tank Size in Gallons
X .81756
/
Fuel Consumption in
m^{3}/hr =
generator running hours on this tank. **
ENGLISH LANGUAGE DESCRIPTION OF THE FORMULA:**
Take propane **Tank Size **(in Gallons)
and** multiply times
.81756, **this number is** ****
divided by ****Fuel
Consumption** (in cubic meters per hour) **
Equals** hours of running time in hours for this tank.
If you require days, divide by 24. **

4.54 days
For a **
100 gallon** tank
burned
at a
