Benefits of Diesel Generators
The main advantage of diesel generators is in the fuel itself. Diesel generates much more power for less cost, and is safer to store because it is not as volatile as petrol. Diesel fuel is a light-grade oil, meaning there’s less friction and therefore less wear and tear in the engine. As a result, the diesel engines have a longer life than their petrol equivalents, making them a popular choice for trucks, trains, farm equipment, heavy machinery – and of course, generators.
