The increasing development of engines in human life to facilitate human work for 24 hours, cannot be denied that the Generator Set or better known as Genset is very important role in keeping the engine alive during the power outages. For this reason, it is necessary to monitor a Ganset fuel tank to make it easier to find out the changing conditions of the Ganset fuel, and the automatic runhours calculation system so that the maintenance of the ganset can be easily determined based on the calculation of the life span of the ganset. Tank monitoring system and automatic calculation of runhours ganset that is designed based on IoT, this system uses an ultrasonic sensor to find out the height of the fuel tank in captivity, the current sensor as a live ganset detector, Nodemcu Esp8266 functions as data receiver from the sensor and sends it to the web application that has been created. From the test results it can be seen that the percentage of errors in the ultrasonic sensor is 5.2%, and testing on the current sensor that detects the current in the load with an error in the manual calculation time with the time on the web display only ranges from 1-2 seconds.
Keywords: Tank Generator sets, NodeMCU Esp8266, Ultrasonic Sensors, Current Sensors, Servo, Server, Web.
