# Propane Generator Run Time Calculator

## 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

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

## Formula

The formula to calculate the run time is:

## 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%.

## 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 1 gallon≈4.24 pounds.

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.
