**What is the difference between a 22kW and 24KW Generac generator?**

As mentioned the Generac 22KW and 24KW use the exact same engine, **the added power output of the 24KW comes from having a larger generator assembly** so... because the 24KW unit outputs more power, in theory the engine should not have to work as hard as one in a 22KW unit to produce the same amount of power.

**How much natural gas does a 24KW generator use?**

24kW Fuel Economy

At a full load of 24kW, the generator uses **203 cubic feet of natural gas per hour** while the 22kW uses 228 cubic feet to produce 22kW. The 20kW would use 204 cubic feet. That's 7 Percent more power using less natural gas than the 22kW, and 14 percent more power than the 20kW on slightly less gas.

**How long will a 500 gallon propane tank run a generator?**
