I keep a 55 gal drum on hand and 3 , 6 gal cans. Also keep 4 gal of oil on hand. Gas is prob the least efficient and its going to vary by load but mine has a small fuel tank so it needs filled more often and honestly I like that .when it gets low you should be checking the oil anyway. No oil " boom" no genny.
It will run about 1.5 hrs on a tank full at 60% load
Lp stores forever, kerosene and diesel second then gasoline. This newer gas only store for about 9 months without a additive then it starts degrading. We had a under ground fuel tank with about 155 gal in it that hadn't been used In Roughly 9-10 yrs that fuel still ran the ol tractor just fine. Thei new stuff is crap fuel IMHO.
