Generator

I have a Thor sprinter citation with an Onan 3600 LP generstor and a 68.2 lb LP tank. How long can I expect the generator to run at 50% load? I"m just looking for a ballpark figure. I understand I also have the water heater using LP gas and the frig when the gen is off.

According to the owners manual:
No load: 0.3 gal/hr or 1.5lb/hr
50% load: 0.5 gal/hr or 2.4lb/hr
Full load: 0.7 gal/hr or 3.1lb/hr
