The current MBS models come with 9.8 gals. At 4.24#/gal., that's 41.55#. At 80% fill capacity, that's 7.84 gals. or 33.24#.
According to Onan specs on LPG usage for the 3.6K generator that comes with these units, the run time (excluding any furnace, stove or oven usage) is as follows (usage specs from Onan, hours calculation is mine):
No load: 0.4 gal. or 1.5 lbs./hr. Run time: 19.6 hours
Half load: 0.6 gal. or 2.4 lbs./hr. Run time: 13 hours.
Full load: 0.7 gal. or 3.1 lbs./hr. Run time: 11.2 hrs.
Someone please check my math. However I used gallons in each case. If you look at the Onan numbers, they are not consistent across the range between gallons and pounds. They used a conversion factor ranging from 3.75 to 4.4 lbs./gal. for reasons unknown.
