Why should I buy a diesel generator over a natural gas or propane generator?
In the event of a natural disaster, gas and propane lines are usually shut down by the utility companies or the government to prevent further destruction leaving those customers who have a natural gas or propane generator with a useless unit. Diesel is readily available from your local gas station and therefore, your diesel generator will operate without any restrictions. This scenario alone has influenced many of our customers to purchase a diesel generator.
A diesel generator will last you 22,000 – 25,000 hours and a natural gas or propane generator will last approximately 1,500 hours in total. The extra money you spend on a diesel generator is obviously justified.
Why does it cost more to buy a diesel powered generator?
Diesel fuel contains more energy and engines using it must be built stronger to take advantage of the higher energy they produce. It costs more to build a diesel engine since it is much stronger and will last about 20 times longer. You will recoup the extra cost with a diesel generator that will last you 22,000 – 25,000 hours over a natural gas or propane generator that will last 1,500 hours in total on average.
How long will diesel fuel last?
Diesel fuel can be expected to last at least 5 years provided steps are taken to keep water and fungus out and potentially up to 10 years with a regular inspection.
To help keep water out of your fuel, tanks should be kept full to reduce the space where water will come from condensation as the tank breathes. The rate at which water collects will depend on local climate and will be higher in hot humid coastal areas.
