Fuel Consumption - Honda Generators

Please forgive what is probably a stupid question but I would like to know how much fuel is consumed in the normal operation of the Honda EU2000i generator and it's companion unit for a given time period so I know how to plan for the storage of fuel. I can't seem to find any information in the Honda manual

This is a link to a site of a company that converts Honda generators to tri-fuel use. Scroll down a bit and you will find a section where they quote the usage of gasoline, LP and natural gas for their converted units. I would think that an unconverted unit would have the same gasoline usage.

Inverter Generator with CMD Triple-Fuel System

If I may say, there is no such thing as a stupid question. To me people who think that other peoples questions are stupid are very arrogant to think that all other people have the same knowledge as they do. People who ask questions lack specific knowledge and are trying to learn and we are never too old to learn something new.
So you keep on asking though questions!!!!

Honda generally quotes 3-4 hours at full throttle. Tank is about 1 gallon. Less load longer times, they quote 15 hrs but I am doubtful. Doubling them up again depends on the load.

Please note that full power is really 1600 watts on each. 30amp output connector on the companion is labeled at 26.6 amps for continuous use.

2,000 watts max.
1,600 watts rated
Engine: 3.5 HP, 4 stroke, Single cylinder, overhead cam, air cooled
Starter: Recoil
Noise level: 53-59 dB (1/4 load & Rated load) 60dB is normal speech!
Weight: 46.3 lbs. Dry
tank size: 1.0 gallons
Run time: 15.0/4.0 hrs. (1/4 load & Rated load)
DC output (Requires optional cable)
20" x 11.4" x 16.7" Dimensions (LxWxH)
Eco-Throttle - Engine RPM adjusts to amperage draw. (Scroll Down for More Information)
Low oil shut down
Ac and DC breaker
Honda inverter technology provides a pure sine wave allowing computers and other sensitive testing equipment to be run with confidence (Scroll Down for More Information)
Parallel operation with optional connector and second EU2000i doubles available power

. I have ran my 2000i for about 9 hours with normal usage. No AC and a few minutes of the mic oven, lights to read by and the TV on. I have never tied to leaving them running all night. What's why the furnace runs on 12v
