HOW TO BUY
Your Generator should produce at least the calculated Total Starting Watts
Running Watts: The power required to continuously run an electrical device after it has already been started.
Starting Watts: The momentary surge of power required to start motor-driven products like a refrigerator. You may estimate using the following equation if Running & Starting Watts are not available.
WATTS = VOLTS x AMPS
Only motor-driven devices will require additional watts. The additional starting watts required may be estimated 1-2 x Running Watts.
10W – 30 is our standard recommended oil (you can find this in your manual) if you would like to use full synthetic oil 5W – 30 is recommended. Please be advised if you decide to go to synthetic oil we suggest you keep using synthetic.
Depending on your generator there are three places to find your serial number: on our open frame generator, it is on the right side of the tank in a white label, for our inverter generators it is on the top in a white label, and for our dual fuel units it is right behind the battery on the side of the engine.
