Run Time of etrailer Generator 333-0005 on Propane and What Size Propane Tanks Can be Used


How long will the generator Item # 333-0005 run at 1/2 power on the largest propane tank specified for it? I assume the size is 30 lb. Also, how long will it run on a 20 lb tank?


Helpful Expert Reply:

First, you are correct that the etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator - 3,600 Running Watts - Propane or Gas # 333-0005 should only run on either 20 lb or 30 lb capacity propane tanks. In regards to run time on half power, we can only give an estimate but for a 20 lb tank running at half capacity it should give you in the neighborhood of 10 hours while a larger 30 lb tank should give you something in the range of 14 hours. That said, factors such as elevation can affect run times, and it is rare for any generator to run at exactly 1/2 power and to do so for any extended period of time so these numbers should be used as more of a general guide to how long they can run.

I have added links to the instructions of etrailer 4,500-Watt Portable Generator # 333-0005 as well as a link to a video review for you to check out.
