When you need on-site power from a diesel generator, it is important to know how much fuel your equipment needs, how long your generator will run and when you will need refueling. This generator run time calculator will not only calculate generator burn rates for multiple gensets, but will also calculate the run time of your diesel generator(s). This tool will also calculate the runtime and burn rate for multiple generators.
You will need:
- Number of Generators
- kW Rating of Generators
- Percentage of Load
- Gallons of Fuel Stored
Using this data, our diesel generator run time calculator will factor the values and output your generator(s) burn rate and generator run time based on the number of gallons in your fuel reserves. If you have a more complicated system, contact us to have a free assessment of your generator yard and custom calculations to calculate your generator burn rate and calculate your generator run time.
Please note: this generator burn rate calculator and generator run time calculator is meant to provide a general idea of generator burn rates and run times. Calculations for generator burn rates and run times can vary due to generator type, make and model, environmental factors, fuel type, fuel quality, and differences in electrical switchgear and other equipment. To ensure your facility never runs out of emergency generator fuel, contact us.
