diesel generator purchase guide

Diesel generators are beneficial machines that generate electricity by burning diesel. These machines use a combination of generators and diesel engines to generate electricity.

Genset Vs Generator: Which Is Right For Your Needs?

Let’s look at how diesel generators work, their uses, applications, advantages, and disadvantages. Ultimately, we’ll see what things to look at before buying a diesel generator.

How Diesel Generators Work?

Diesel generators use combustion to convert some of the chemical energy in diesel fuel into mechanical energy. This mechanical energy then turns the crank to generate electricity.

Moving the wire from a magnetic field induces charges in it. In generators, two polarized magnets typically generate a magnetic field. A wire is then wrapped multiple times around the crankshaft of the diesel generator, placing it between the magnets and in the magnetic field.

As a diesel engine (How to rebuild a diesel generator engine?) spins the crankshaft, the wires move throughout the magnetic field, which induces a charge in the circuit. The diesel engine used is an internal combustion engine. Unlike gasoline engines, diesel engines use compression heat to ignite and burn fuel injected into the injection chamber.

Diesel engines, generally, have the highest thermal efficiency as compared to any other internal combustion engine, and can achieve nearly 100 percent of Carnot’s efficiency.

Advantages of diesel generators

Maintenance costs are relatively low

That’s because the generator’s engine requires fewer parts to start, so you don’t have to worry about changing spark plugs or rebuilding the carburetor like a gas engine.


Diesel engines are powerful in the workplace, so they can withstand a lot of wear and tear in various environmental conditions.

Safe storage

Diesel, while still flammable, has a much lower ignition risk than other types of fuel, such as gasoline.

Power output

Diesel generators can handle higher electrical loads and run for longer periods of time than other generator types.

Robust and reliable

Fuel is easily accessible. Diesel generators are typically transported in the back of a diesel vehicle. This means you don’t have to work with two different types of fuel.

Advantages of diesel generators compared to gasoline generators

Fuel efficiency

Diesel engines use less fuel than gasoline engines. This results in longer runtimes when operating at the same capacity. Some diesel engines use up to half the fuel that a comparable gasoline engine would.

Reduce Generator Fuel Consumption


Diesel engines require less upkeep. This is due in part to the lack of spark plugs and carburetors in diesel engines. This eliminates the need to change spark plugs or rebuild the carburetor.


Diesel engines have a much longer lifespan in terms of service life. Diesel engines can last up to 3 times longer than typical gasoline engines.


Unlike gasoline, diesel fuel is safer and has less fire risk.

Disadvantages of diesel generators

However, diesel generators have some disadvantages, especially for the environment. 

Consuming 1 liter of diesel fuel emits an average of 2.7 kg of carbon dioxide. Diesel generators have a significant impact on environment compared to other energy sources. It produces carbon monoxide and other air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides and particulate matter. 

Diesel generators also cause noise pollution, have high upfront costs compared to some energy sources, and can be expensive to repair and maintain. 

The main ongoing service requirement for diesel engines is regular oil changes. A well-maintained diesel generator can last a long time, but a poorly maintained generator is prone to failure.

In cold weather, starting the generator can be problematic. But don’t worry; it can be overcome by using glow plugs and other heating elements that heat the engine, including the incoming air. But it costs extra. 

The main disadvantages of diesel generators are as under:

  1. Diesel prices will continue to rise.
  2. Regular maintenance is required to keep the generator running.
  3. Fuel injection systems and other parts are more prone to failure, resulting in insufficient reliability and high spare parts costs. 
  4. Diesel engines are made of large, heavy components, making repairs expensive.
  5. While inexpensive, installation costs can increase.
  6. Diesel engines can be very noisy, so they are usually placed away from the work area
  7. Diesel generators are too bulky and heavy to be considered mobile and compact.
  8. They must be kept dry, or they will rust quickly.

Diesel generator purchase guide

Suppose you purchase a diesel generator for industrial, construction, retail, institutional, medical, or residential purposes. In that case, you may also need to measure the optimum requirements commensurate with the available budget range and the desired power output

After deciding on a diesel generator requirement, you may also need to meet some essential purchasing elements to purchase the best diesel generator.

Diesel generator type

Having identified the purpose, it is time to move on to the type of diesel generator. Ideally, there are likely to be four types of diesel generators available, including standby generator, portable diesel generators, towable, and power take-off being the best types of diesel generators. These generator types also fall into different power output categories, which you can choose according to your requirements.

Power output

Power output is also another prominent factor when choosing a diesel generator type. You may need to calculate your optimum rated power output from the total load at that location. This step is a must action; it also maximizes the cost impact standard, higher power output can be expensive due to the cost, and it consumes a sufficient amount of fuel, but the optimal power rating allows you to save fuel and precious money. Power outputs with diesel generators start from at least 15kW, with a wide variety of types, 25-49kW, 50-99kW, or even 100+ kW if you have the most competitive needs.

Estimate the budget

Lastly, your estimated budget will only allow you to have specific diesel generators based on your electrical resources. 

By following the basic steps mentioned above for purchasing a new diesel generator, you can maximize the purchase of the right product within your estimated budget.

Generator size and shipping

It pays to determine if the unit can be towed or loaded on a truck and to check for features like forklift slots and lifting eyes. It is worth considering whether the units can be stacked together to minimize footprint and access considerations when using multiple generators.

diesel generator FAQ lists

Unlike gas generators, which use carburetors that can fail, diesel generators don’t have a carburetor and instead generate electricity through compression. Diesel generators are more fuel efficient because they last longer and use less fuel.

Diesel generators do meet a variety of unique needs, which is why they are capable of powering an entire home as a backup source while also being able to support all types of heavy machinery.

Diesel fuel is more expensive than gasoline. Still, diesel generators are much more fuel efficient than gasoline generators, typically burning about 50% of the fuel at any given time. As a result, diesel generators are often cheaper than gasoline generators over time.

Whether you use a diesel generator depends on your company’s needs. You can usually find diesel generators in the industrial sector. They have high efficiency and the ability to generate large amounts of electricity. With its fuel efficiency, low maintenance, and durability, you may find that the benefits of using diesel generators in your facility outweigh the disadvantages.

Maintenance is a crucial consideration for any generator. The manufacturer recommends following a specified maintenance schedule to keep your diesel generator running at peak value. Usually, this happens after a specific service time.

When you find that your generator is not as efficient as it should be, you should always perform maintenance. Also, it’s a good idea to perform maintenance whenever a major weather event occurs.

For example, after a heavy rain or dust storm. Dust and other air pollutants can have a significant impact on generator performance, clog filters, and make generators work harder to do the same job.

While maintenance requirements for diesel generators are extremely low, some tasks require a regular operation. These include:

  • Drain and replace oil, coolant, and fuel
  • Test the battery
  • Clean or replace the filter
  • A comprehensive inspection of all components
  • Run the engine to test run

Regular maintenance will help maximize your diesel generator investment. Maintain your generator and make any necessary repairs on time, and it will serve you well for many years.

BISON recommends planning preventive maintenance. This ensures your generator runs at peak efficiency. Be sure to keep a log of these checks for reference if necessary.
