Generator Fuel Types: Choices Available

Aug 17, 2007
Since the invention of electricity, the civilization has become so much dependent on it, that today we can not imagine to spend even a single day without electricity. You can well imagine what it will be like running a household without electricity! So you can well understand the hazards the business establishment will face if they are suddenly cut off from the power supply! No matter it's a business or household, we should always be prepared for the worst that is a shortage in power supply and invest in a good quality generator.

What makes a standard generator? A Motor and a generator head that precisely make a standard generator. Now motor needs fuel to produce power and this power is turned into electricity by the generator head.
So the primary ingredient that you need to run the generator is fuel and there are various fuel options that can be used in your generator.

The generators can be divided into several types depending on the fuel they use. But there are several advanced quality generators that are provided with dual- or tri-fuel configurations and this facility is available both with portable generators as well as standby generators. The dual or tri fuel feature enables you to use type of fuel according to your choice. As for example, you can switch from natural gas to biodiesel by simply reconnecting a hose.

Let us discuss about several popular types of fuel used in the generators.

Diesel
Have you installed a large commercial generator in your business premises? Diesel can be the ideal choice for your generator, if you are looking for a less expensive but dependable fuel option. Diesel is less expensive in comparison to natural gas or propane but diesel isn't as clean-burning as them. If you want to use diesel but still crave for a cleaner burning, you have to use biodiesel, which is a clean burning, 100% organic and environment friendly product. In both the cases you will need to have a proper tank to hold the fuel after it has been delivered.

Natural gas and propane
Natural gas or propane is the best fuel option for the standby generators. Fuel is supplied to the standby generator through the utility lines connected to it. The generator easily draws fuel when necessary. Depending on the availability in your area, you have to make a choice between natural gas and propane to run your generator.

Gasoline
If you have a small portable generator, gasoline makes for the best fuel source for your generator. However, one shortcoming of gasoline is that it can't be stored for a long period. If you are not going to use your generator too often, you can opt for propane generator instead of a gasoline generator.
