Generac NG generator

Considering buying a Generac 8Kw natural gas generator. What would it cost me to run for 24 hours at half load with a Nat Gas price of .63 per ccf? I am not sure how to do the math on this one. Thanks

According to my Generac manual, the 7/8kW unit uses 77 cubic feet per hour at half load, 140 at full load.

So, at half load that should be $11.64 for 24 hours.
