hi,

i am facing this problem of the specific fuel convertion to liters for our generator. Wondering you can help up?

Generator size: 750KVA ( Prime rated )
Power factor: 0.8
Voltage: 440V 50Hz
Fuel consumption stated : 210 g/kW.h

I needed to fabricate a diesel tank for this big brother, but just can't firgure out the volumn of Liters needed if i run the generator for 10hours.

It's possible to share how to convert this g/kW.h to liters ?

At rated load, 750 kVA x 0.8 PF = 600 kW and fuel consumption is 600 kW x 210 g/kWh = 126 kg/h

I assume this runs on diesel. Fuel density can vary but 0.84 kg/L is a typical value for #2 diesel. 126 kg/h x 1 L/0.84 kg = 150 L/h.

If the generator is run at less than full load, the fuel consumption will be reduced.

I have found figures for density ranging from 1.01 to 1.4 kg/L. From Heinz nutritional info (data is rounded) I get around 1.1 kg/L.

Using that 4.5 kg x 1 L/1.1 kg = 4.1 L approx.
I am sure it is at least a little heavier than water, the question is how much.

The mileage for a motorcycle with a fuel-tank capacity of 22L is 35 miles per gal. The density of gasoline is .74 g/mL. What is the mass in kilograms of fuel in the tank?

Note that 0.74 g/mL = 0.74 kg/L,
22 L x 0.74 kg/L = 16.3 kg

Everything has a different density so we take our density figures from any reliable looking source we can find. A few are listed in our "Resources" section, but we use MANY sources. Which figure in particular troubles you?
