**Introduction**

Calculating the run time of a propane generator is crucial for ensuring a reliable power source during outages. To simplify this process, we’ll create a user-friendly Propane Generator Run Time Calculator using HTML and JavaScript. Follow the guide to understand how to use the calculator effectively.

**How to Use**

- Input the generator’s fuel consumption rate in gallons per hour.
- Enter the propane tank’s capacity in gallons.
- Provide the current propane level in the tank (in percentage).
- Click the “Calculate” button to obtain the estimated run time.

**Formula**

The formula to calculate the run time is:

$Run Time (in hours)=Fuel Consumption RatePropane Tank Capacity×Propane Level $

**Example**

Suppose a generator has a fuel consumption rate of 0.5 gallons per hour, a propane tank capacity of 20 gallons, and the current propane level is 50%.

$Run Time=0.5× =200hours$

**FAQs**

**Q: Can I use this calculator for any propane generator?**

**A:** Yes, the calculator is designed for any propane generator. Just input the specific details of your generator.

**Q: What if my tank capacity is in pounds instead of gallons?**

**A:** Convert the tank capacity to gallons using the conversion factor $1gallon≈4.24pounds$.

**Q: Is the calculator accurate for different propane mixtures?**

**A:** The calculator assumes a standard propane mixture. For different mixtures, refer to the generator’s manual for specific data.

**Conclusion**

This Propane Generator Run Time Calculator provides a quick and accurate estimate of how long your generator can run on existing propane levels. Remember to consult your generator’s manual for precise fuel consumption rates and propane tank capacities.
