Power used bt the inverter

I had installed a solar system using the Victron inverter a couple of months ago, whilst I appreciate it's early days and we are into the autumn it is currently generating about 8.5 kWh per day, of which 2 kwh is used to power the inverter and/or "lost" in the conversion from DC to AC – is it about right?

2 from 8.5kwh seems a bit high.

I have often noticed that inverter self consumption from a 48V lithium battery without any loads connected is usually 2A thereabouts. So 2kwh is quite high in your case.
