    How long will an 8KW generator run at 1/2 load on 200 gallon tank of propane? Right now the home is propane heated with 2 above ground 100 gallon tanks. Long term plan is to bury 1000 gallon tank but we are going to need to approach this phases, starting with the purchase of a standby unit to replace a portable.

    The Generac 8kW Standby generator consumes .94 gallons/hour propane at 1/2 load and 1.68 gallons/hour at full load. This information is from Generac's specs for this generator.
