  • fuel consumption while idling?

    just curious about this....

    how long would your truck idle on a gallon of fuel?

    I just bought a new generator and was looking at the run time and it made me think about idle fuel economy.

        i dont think its a gallon an hour, i thought it was more like a litre an hour. dont quote me on that though.

          1 liter = 0.264172052 US gallons so i think thats more reasonable

            Our cat twin turbo 1050hp sips 1.3 gallons an hour at idle. And if your curious at full load it's drinking 54 gallons an hour.
