What you need to know.
This time of the year, mice and other small rodents will seek winter shelter by making nests in protected areas away from the cold. The warm confines of your generator enclosure are inviting to these unwelcome guests.
Once inside, these pests will chew on wires, build nests, and wreck havoc to the sensitive parts that power your generator system.
But why do rodents chew on wires in the first place?
Don’t let this happen to you.
Why pay attention to the diesel fuel in your generator storage tank? Because doing so might prevent a costly remediation and repair bill. A little attention to the fuel in the tank could have saved the owner of this generator nearly $13,000 in repairs.
Here’s what happened.
When a generator fails to start or is running poorly the first thing people think is that there must be a mechanical issue.
Yet surprisingly, most performance issues can be traced back to bad fuel quality.
Here’s why you should care.
With the rising cost of diesel fuel P3 Generator Services has more recently been asked about how to best maintain and protect the investment of fuel already in the tank.
This is good news as it means that our message about the importance of fuel management is resonating. However, we are discovering that there is a belief that simply adding a fuel stabilizer is enough. While this is certainly a part of it, it should not replace a more comprehensive fuel management plan.
Understanding the answers to these questions will help explain why:
How to ensure reliable generator operation and protect your equipment
Fuel is arguably the most critical component of your emergency power system, yet likely the least maintained, as evidenced by the fact that fuel related issues are the number one reason for 95% of generator fail-to-start faults. Proper fuel maintenance is critical to ensuring your generator will perform its best when you need it the most.
Do you know what’s in your fuel storage tank?
Fuel issues are the number one reason for emergency call outs. With hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in fuel inventory at stake, testing for fuel quality should be #1 on your to do list.
