Operating Portable Generator for Extended Periods
How long can I run my portable generator before I have to shut it down?
In emergency situations, you may find it necessary to run your generator for extended periods of time. However, during these extended running sessions, it is important to pay particular attention to the recommended maintenance schedule of your unit. Proper maintenance will prolong engine life and ensure your generator will keep running when you need it most.
Please see the chart below and refer to your Operator's Manual for additional maintenance information.
PLEASE NOTE: Never allow the generator to run out of fuel while it is under a load. If this happens and sensitive equipment is being powered, it could destroy the equipment or cause harm to the generator.
