FG Wilson has over five decades of experience in the supply of diesel and gas generator sets. The products in the Indian market range from 10 to 200 kVA. The company’s experience indicates that consumers using generators regularly must weigh factors such as lifetime cost, efficiency and durability over the life of a generator. The choice of modern engines can significantly help consumers in fuel savings and enhance engine life. Consumers must also examine the parts during the lifetime of the generator set offered by suppliers. Further, filters and fluids, which account for just 3 per cent of the operating costs, can have a huge impact on the effectiveness of the generator. Thus, it is important to fit genuine filters and change oil as specified in the operators’ manual. Further, it is important to buy diesel only from reputed suppliers and ensure that the fuel tank is full as this prevents condensation, which is the leading cause of algae growth inside the fuel tank. Once installed, proper checks and maintenance can ensure that the generators function properly in all-weather conditions.
