as far as generators go. I have to say depends on the load you are putting on it. how much power you are using from it will dictate how long it will run.

since I work on diesel generators from time to time at work. when we load test them we test them between 75% to 90% load since they sit a lot.

if you are not using that much of a load you will "wet stack" the generator. i'm not too sure about gas but on diesel they will have a wet area around the exhaust which means you are not using enough of the generators power output.

it really depends on what you are running and how much you are drawing from it. in my experience it is always better to use the generator and use it not just let it sit. but that is my opinion.

for longer use you may be able to attach another fuel source to it and get longer run times.

i'am unsure if the OP has me on ignore and will not see what I posted for his benefit and not threadcraping.
