Petrol Generator FAQ's

What is a Petrol Generator?

Petrol generators use petrol as fuel to run their engine. Specifically, they convert the chemical energy of petrol into mechanical energy. Petrol generators are ideal for individuals and commercial businesses looking for efficient, reliable power generation at a low cost. They are purchased for home and recreational use and worksites, often due to their mobility factor. The key features of a petrol generator are its low noise output, lightweight frame (allowing portability), fuel economy, long operation timeframes and an ability to power both demanding applications such as large caravans, food vans, coffee vans & outdoor events and sensitive equipment prone to voltage fluctuations such as laptops & mobile phones.

Why Would I Choose A Petrol Generator?

A petrol generator is the correct type of generator for you if you require efficient, reliable power generation at a low cost. Petrol generators are known for their low noise output, lightweight frame (portability), economical fuel consumption and continuous operation for hours at a time.

Should I Choose a Petrol or Diesel Generator?

When it comes to choosing a petrol or diesel generator, there are some key points to take into consideration. Both models come with advantages and disadvantages, which we will now present for your comparison. Petrol generators are ideal for home and commercial businesses as they are efficient and reliable and are lower in cost to run than their diesel counterparts. Diesel generators are more robust than the petrol models and, as a result as better suited to more demanding situations such as mining, construction, trade and various industrial applications. Both diesel and petrol generators are subject to fluctuations in fuel costs, but petrol generators also use their fuel less efficiently, which results in more regular refills and larger quantities of fuel kept on site. Petrol generators also have a lower operating volume over the diesel but can require more frequent maintenance and repairs due to the strain on internal components because of high levels of heat. 

What Size Petrol Generator Do I Need?

Determining the size of the generator required takes into consideration several factors. These factors are explained in the points below for your consideration. Petrol generators are well suited to situations where smaller-scale use is required. These situations will include residential settings or small-scale trade, construction or commercial applications. There is a simple formula to determine the size petrol generator for each of the applications; 1) make a list of the items that need to be powered by the generator 2) make a note of the starting and running W/KVA for each item 3) calculate the total power requirements in W or KVA 4) email or call Blue Diamond Machinery to speak with a technical expert who can advise you of the most suitable petrol generator for your needs, 1300 998 647.

Are Petrol Generators Safe?

Taking safety precautions when using a petrol generator is a large part of responsible ownership. Like diesel generators, petrol-powered generators used a highly flammable, combustive fuel to generate power through the device. There are some essential considerations to make when using a device that uses fuel. We have outlined some general considerations for customers below, with a particular focus on safety around refuelling. For further information, please contact Blue Diamond Machinery, and the expert team can discuss in more detail with you the safety precautions. Important safety considerations when using a petrol generator are; 1) make sure a fire extinguisher is immediately accessible when using a generator 2) ensure portable generators sit on firm ground, in well-ventilated areas, away from heat and possible ignition sources 3) be aware that refuelling a generator should not take place in low lying areas where vapours could accumulate and potentially ignite 4) only carry and decanter petrol using approved fuel containers to reduce generating static electricity in the decanting process 5) ensure a petrol generator has the container cap placed tightly before moving 6) always allow the motor to cool down and maintain the upright generator position in a well-ventilated space before transporting. For any further enquiries regarding safety when using a petrol generator, please contact our expert team on 1300 998 647.
