It will depend on the load. Probably around 1.5 gallon an hour

My QD6000 (diesel) says 1/2 gallon at 1/4 load...3/4 gallon at 1/2 load and 1.2 gallon wide open. That's why I use portables for long, boondocking events. They run for days on end with just a few gallons of gas.

Average fuel consumption

Gasoline No load Half load Full load

60 Hz 4.0 KY 0.3 Gal/h (1.1 L/h) 0.5 Gal/h (1.8 L/h) 0.7 Gal/h (2.7 L/h)

I average about 0.5 gal/h when traveling on a 100 degree day running the Coleman 15,000 btu A/C.

Just parked at site. Is 1/2 gallon per hour? Only to run A/C if needed or a few hours of TV .

I agree with the 1/2 gallon per hour. My 5500 Onan uses 1/2 gallon running both AC's. I suspect the 4000 will use a little less especially running only 1 AC but if you figure 1/2 gallon you won't be disappointed or surprised.

Beau388's post is info straight from the manual. And it seems accurate. I calculate 0.5 gph running the a/c and always have more gas than I expect.
