Questions & Answers for All Power America Portable Diesel Generator - 6500 Surge Watts, 5000 Rated Watts, Model# APG3201

Question

Can off-road diesel be used without problems

I run a farm and use off-road diesel to power my equiment, trucks, tractors, 4x4 etc. It is my understanding it is the same fuel as you buy at the station except colored red because of not paying the road tax. Can this fuel be used safely with this generator?

You would not be able to use the 12 volt DC outlet to charge your RV batteries. You would be able to connect a standard 120 volt battery charger to the generator and then connect to your RV batteries to charge them.

What is Light Diesel Oil?

The All-Power diesel generator uses light diesel oil. The Q&A repeats this as if everyone knows what this is. I don't. What is light diesel oil and where is it typically purchased? Thanks.

Staff Answer
Light diesel fuel or oil is the standard diesel sold at most gas stations across the USA. Off road diesel is a non-taxed form of diesel used for some types of very large off road machines such as used in road construction.

answer 2
..to expand on STAFF answer:
Light diesel oil is sold at many gas stations #2 or a blend of #2 & #1 for winter use. But the off road diesel is not and must usually be purchased from a petroleum dealer. Off road diesel is formulated similar to that purchased for an auto or truck but it is not subject to road use tax and is dyed red to identify it as such. It is restricted for use in any engines/vehicles that are not driven on public roads, highways, or freeways. This certainly applies to generators.

answer 2
Newer diesel engines don't do well on heating oil..... if it's a real emergency - yes the engine will burn heating oil. But in the long term you will damage the engine. So if you can't get fuel - like this last sandy hurricane (4 hour fuel lines in my area - and no diesel anywhere) you can use heating oil. but it will void your warranty most times and after 10-30 gallons the damage will start to be done. It will keep running on heating oil past that - but the life of the engine will be used up much much faster.

Heating oil is high sulfer, diesel is low sulfer with lubrication added into it and burns hotter then heating oil. So heating oil at a lower, dirtier burn will clog up the injectors and will not seat the rings well on a break in.

This All Power America Portable Diesel Generator uses sine wave power. It is not pure sine wave power, so it is not stabilized enough for sensitive electronics.
