Why does the B&S 20kw recommend changing the oil every 20 hours?
Eric 
from Maine 
January 04, 2014
Read Response +
Answer
Per the owner's manual here is the oil maintenance schedule...

FIRST 5 HOURS:
-CHANGE ENGINE OIL
EVERY 8 HOURS OR DAILY:
-CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
EVERY 100 HOURS OR ANNUALLY:
-CHANGE ENGINE OIL AND FILTER

The "Every 8 Hours or Daily" list is during long run times. When the units run their weekly exercise they only run for 12-15 minutes, so the oil does not need to be checked or changed unless the 100 hour or annual mark comes up.

The generators internal controller will tell you when the oil needs to be changed. However, we like to recommend checking the oil every spring and fall and change as needed.

How many BTU is 20 kw generator?
Mladen Kovatchev 
from New York 
June 26, 2013
Read Response +
Answer
Fuel consumption rates are estimated based on normal operating conditions. Generator operation may be greatly affected by elevation and the cycling operation of multiple electrical appliances fuel flow rates may vary depending on these factors.

Full Load - 260,000 BTU/HR
1/2 Load - 187,000 BTU/HR

Information provided is from the manufacturers specification sheet available on our website under the specs tab....

Sorry, there are no LP/Gasoline home standby generators available. The only option would be one of the Winco Tri-Fuel portable generators which operate on NG, LP or Gasoline....
