Generator run times

Ok I have been reading all the forms on generators and what everyone is running but my question is on run times. how long does a tank of gas last when running the air conditioning? (average is what I'm looking for) I am looking at the pair of 2000k genies and the 3000k(honda and yamaha) also I wonder about the champion 3100k.
Also with the champion I am wondering how many problem free hours do you have on your genies?

I don't have personal experience with the portable generators, but the summer of 2014 I worked with a guy that operated a 2000 watt Honda on a pontoon boat operating a couple of freezers 24 hours a day. He filled it with gas as needed during the day and when he docked at night usually around 5-6 pm. When he arrive in the morning at 7-8'ish is was sometimes still running and sometimes it had run out of gas. He checked the oil, filled it back up with gas and off for another day. He did this from May until September and the only problem he had was a spark plug that died.

Our Honda EU3000is will easily run all night running a 13500 air conditioner. At 1/4 throttle it has almost 24 hrs of runtime.

I agree with Ross you can't beat that size Honda he has for run time or sound, when we run ours at the race track you forget you have it on.

I am kind of liking the 2 2k Honda's with the dual feed tank atm. Much easier to move that around by myself than a 130 lb dry weight gennie into the back of a truck and then over the 5er hitch! And with the dual feed tank it will run for days
