Diesel fuel is an excellent fuel to operate electric generators with. Diesel has historically been less expensive than gasoline
and is readily available almost anywhere. Diesel Fuel, ( when stored correctly) is very stable, has
good shelf-life, and is usually not affected by the elements or mechanical disruptions that cause most residential power outages.
Large stationary industrial backup / standby generators generally run on diesel fuel, but some can be powered by Natural Gas depending
upon the application and setup. Diesel is preferred because of the lower operating cost and longer useful life of the overall generator
unit. These units are usually engineered specifically for their particular application. The manufacturer can assist you with unit
Some portable generators are powered by diesel fuel as they come from the manufacturer. The vast majority are powered by gasoline,
however; most industrial-strength "jobsite" generators are built to run on diesel fuel. This includes hand-portable (sometimes on a
wheeled cart) and small and large trailer mounted generator sets. Diesel powered portable units can be expected to have a much lower
overall operating cost when compared to a gasoline powered unit of this size and class
