1977 36' trojan how to switch fuel to run just off of generator tanks

by Mike
(Niantic, Ct.)

I am getting ready to run offshore for a 3 day fishing trip. What I want to do is fill my two tanks that run my generator which is a total of 80 gallons and go for a 4 hour sea trial then come back and fill those tanks back up to get a rough idea of my gas mileage. what i am not sure of is when i turn off my two main tanks do i turn my generator fuel tank to the on position or due i turn it to the off position to feed my engines fuel. any help on this will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance, Mike

Well I posted wanting to know about running my engines off of the generator tanks. The answer is just shut off the 2 main side tanks and leave the generator tank switch in the on position. but you must shut off the feed line to the generator just prior to the water seperator filter. At least thats how mine works. Just thought I would pass the answer along in case someone else wanted to know.
