First welcome to the forum.

Can't answer the question unless you specify which Onan generator. Each line of coach has a different size generator. For instance the Challenger has an Onan 5500 while the smaller coaches have a smaller generator.

As Dave stated, it depends on the size of your generator but if I remember correctly, the Onan 5000 uses 1/2 gal per hour under half load.
