Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

If a generator uses 3.5 cubic meters of gas per hour and you have a 1000 gallon tank. How many hours will it take to run out of fuel?

Propane: Cu. Ft. of gas/gal. liquid @ 60F = 36.5 or 1,000 gal = 36,500 cu ft = 1,033.5649 cubic meters.

thus a 1,000 gallon tank would have about 1033 cubic meters of propane gas and a full tank would let the generator run about 295 hours, a little over 12 days, running 24 hours per day.
