Generators play a crucial role in providing backup power or electricity in remote locations. When selecting a generator, it's important to consider the type of fuel it uses.

In this guide, we'll explore the different fuel options available for generators, including petrol, diesel, natural gas, and propane.

  • Petrol

    Petrol powered generators are affordable and easily accessible, making them a popular choice for portable and recreational use.

    However, their small fuel tanks limit their run time and require frequent refueling.

  • Diesel

    Diesel generators are more expensive, but they have a longer lifespan, require less maintenance, and are more cost-effective. They offer a reliable source of power for extended use.

  • Natural Gas

    Generators that run on natural gas can be directly connected to a natural gas line, eliminating the need for constant refueling. With a few modifications, these generators can also run on an alternate fuel source, like gasoline.

  • Propane or Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)

    Propane or LPG generators offer similar benefits as natural gas generators, but instead of a city line, they are connected to a large propane tank that needs to be refilled every so often.

When choosing a generator, it's important to consider your power needs, fuel availability, and budget. For the best possible outcome, do your research and ask for advice from other generator users before making a final decision.
