My generator is rated at .5 gallon per hour at half load. Unless it is blistering hot I doubt you would exceed that with the A/C on. FWIW by my calculations that would take me from 8.5 mpg down to maybe 7.9 mpg. Small price to pay for being comfortable. If you want to run the A/C off an inverter it is going to take a big one, big battery bank and big alternator to keep up. Not cheap to install. On some buses I have seen basement air that is run off the engine compressor, and then has a second compressor that can be run off electricity when parked. Again, not an inexpensive installation.
