MAIN STORY
Choosing the Right Generator

Read the fine print in a generator owner’s manual and you’ll find that crankcase oil needs to be changed more often than you might guess. Details vary, but it’s not uncommon for oil changes to be required after every 24 hours of continuous operation. It’s easy to clock 12 to 18 hours of usage each day when you’re living through an extended power outage. That’s why you should keep fresh motor oil on hand. You’ll need to change the oil every couple of days during a long-term outage.
