# Diesel Generator Set Fuel Consumption Reference Value

Mar. 28, 2023

We believe that before purchasing a diesel generator set, everyone will first understand the fuel consumption of the equipment to determine the cost of use. However, most diesel generator set customers do not know the magnitude of the fuel consumption of the diesel generator set and how to calculate the fuel consumption of the diesel generator set. They will first consult the fuel consumption of the generator set, which is difficult to come up with a unified statement. Generally speaking, the fuel consumption of one-dimensional diesel generator is related to the following two factors:

1. Fuel consumption rate: Different brands of diesel generator sets have different fuel consumption rates, resulting in different fuel consumption;

2. The size of the electrical load. If the load is large, the fuel consumption will be higher. If the load is small, the relative fuel consumption will be lower.

In order to facilitate everyone's understanding of the approximate fuel consumption of the generator unit and calculate the operating cost of the generator unit, Starlight has calculated the approximate reference value (30kw-500kw) for everyone.

Fuel consumption of 30kw diesel generator set=6.3 kg=7.8 L

Fuel consumption of 45 kw diesel generator set=9.45 kg=11.84 liters (L)

Fuel consumption of 50kw diesel generator set=10.5kg=13.1L

Fuel consumption of 75 kw diesel generator set=15.7 kg=19.7 liters (L)

Fuel consumption of 100 kw diesel generator set=21 kg=26.25 liters (L)

Fuel consumption of 150 kw diesel generator set=31.5 kilograms (kg)=39.4 liters (L)

Fuel consumption of 200kw diesel generator set=40kg=50L

Fuel consumption of 250 kw diesel generator set=52.5 kilograms (kg)=65.6 liters (L)

Fuel consumption of 300kw diesel generator set=63 kg=78.75 L

Fuel consumption of 350kw diesel generator set=73.5kg=91.8L

Fuel consumption of 400 kw diesel generator set=84.00 kilograms (kg)=105.00 liters (L)

Fuel consumption of 450kw diesel generator set=94.50 kg=118.00 liters (L)

Fuel consumption of 500 kw diesel generator set=105.00 kilograms (kg)=131.20 liters (L)

The above is only an estimate and is for reference only. The specific calculation method for the fuel consumption of a diesel generator is that one liter of diesel oil is approximately equal to 0.84-0.86 kilograms (1L=0.8-0.85KG). Most manufacturers of diesel generators use G/KW. H, which means how many grams (G) of oil are consumed per kilowatt hour by the generator set, and then convert the unit to liters (L) to determine your hourly fuel consumption cost.

After the introduction to fuel consumption mentioned above, I believe everyone knows a lot about this aspect. Starlight also hopes that everyone will have a comprehensive understanding of the various performance of the equipment before purchasing a diesel generator set, so as to select the most suitable product and bring maximum benefits to your enterprise.
