Default 10kw MEP-03 Question

Could a 10kw MEP-03 put out 15kw if needed for starting furnace/AC? Being it is a military unit, I'm figuring there is some over engineering involved.

What's the fuel consumption on these units?

Most of the units I had in the Guard. Were underrated. But you have to be careful with military units. Parts can be hard to find sometimes.

15kw would be pushing it, but might work depending on start configuration of AC. !2.5 kw is the rating of the civilian equivalent motor and gen head.

Fuel consumption is about 1 gallon diesel per hour at 10KW load.
