I am very much interested in this Tweak you talk about. Does it have to do with Carburetor adjustment or you do another thing cos my Gen Mech did thesame to my Sumec 2.5KVa and 2 Litres still does not last that long
suco01:


I don't work with data sheet. I tweak my generator elepaq myself to achieve that. with just 4 (18watt) energy bulb which is not normally ON every time, an orbit fan and a sewing machine 100watt. why won't I achieve that for 5hrs on 2litre. if I can use #200 fuel for 3hrs plus as at 3days ago. Did you just say datasheet sef. you have not point sef, data sheet maybe right when you don't tweak your generator settings and datasheet didn't say if tweaked.

yes. basically the caburator the firing power is reduced to the minimum, adjust the spring screw under the tank so as to balance it with the firing screw, tighten the fuel screwed, due to what I am using it for cos the load is not much at all.

I did this on my 2.5KVA Gen, 2Litres hardly last 3hrs. Though before i did so, it last 2hrs 30mins for 2litres but now it enters 3hrs sometimes.

What I on is:
2 - 100watts bulb,
2- 20watts energy saver,
1- OX Industrial fan 26inches (I don't know how many watts it use)
1- Small fan
1- LCD 28' Inches TV


Does it mean the gen is consuming fuel or is normal?

NB: If i reduce the firing screw more than that, the light will be shaking and the generator will be vibrating so i have put it normal for the light to stabilize.

Fabem Fabem na me sucoxkanmi. when u reduce the firing screw u have to reduce the spring screw under the tank accordingly to avoid vibration. also tighten the fuel screw on the caburator. though my generator is elepaq 2.2kva not 2.5kva

My Tec Junior for instance last at exactly what is stated in the Datasheet....

Yesterday for instance, I added two litres and only turned on 3 fans, and my laptop only.....It lasted for 4hrs55min

This tallies with the specification on the data sheet for Tec Junior.
8.5L Full Tank with Full Load runs for 10hrs 30min = per litre 2hrs13min
8.5L Full Tank with half Load runs for 18hrs54min = per litre 1hr14min

My experience, their specifications are exactly what it is.

I highlu doubt that a 2.2kva out Gen can give you 4hrs on 2litres, lai lai....I have a Summec of thesame power rating, if that was the case,
I wont bother buying a small TEC junior. Go to Jumia and look at the full capacity run time for 2.5KVA Generator of other brands, it is usually 9hrs.

Truth is....If you wont be needing to power high output equipment like Pumping machine, iron, microwave and the likes, if all you want is just to power
your lights and fans and TVs and Laptops.....my brother go for a small Gen with small tank and high fuel Efficiency.....

My Sumec 2.5KVA is still there but I will only put it on at extreme situations when Nepa does not give us light at all for several days and I have foodstuff in the refrigerator that need some icing and freezing....but daily use...my brother, get a small Gen.....
I don't believe in data sheet my 3kva Gen give me 6hrs from 4ltrs on low load if load is high it give me about 4hrs on 4 ltrs it depends on the fuel too though some gives lesser runtime but none has given me higher run time

I adjusted that screw on my cab and my generator started making up and down noise as if it's not getting enough fuel I guess this stuff is not for me I tried it before I got hard start start tried it again I got unbalanced sound I've restored to default and will use like that.

typical Nigerian, you don't believe in data sheet...lol
You better do before you go go buy gbanjo, if we are talking of Elepaq and these other brands them wey full market, may be you have a point....their claims many time might be bogus but if you are talking about data sheet from a reputable international company with standard, it does matter.

A comapany like PZ Cussons the owners of Haier Thermocool their Electrical and Electronics unit won't give out Data about their products that is untrue.

@suco01
I have done all those adjustments that you are talking about.....It has not worked for my 2.5kva with 2.2KVA power output Sumec Firman and it still does not last that long.....I need to know the Engineering wizardry wey you take dey handle your Generator.

Can you do a proper conscious monitoring of how your Generator take dey consume fuel at Full capacity and Half load capacity with a particular
amount of fuel....I am very much interested in what thye result will be......

your generator is higher to mine 2.2kva with 2.0kva power output and 2.5kva with 2.2kva output cant be the same. it's used in my wife shop so it can't be runned on full capacity/half load capacity. Also it's an old elepaq not the fake new ones littering around the market.

I’m following the fuel consumption chat.
Well, well, my wife has a Parsun gen(PS 1900, I’ll check for the kva and all tomorrow)
a #200 or 2ltrs fuel will serve us 4hrs + lol.
A 2-year old gen set
Maybe an engr did some tweaking sometimes ago. I can’t say..

All in all, the gen Dey serve her well oooo...

Load: 2 small yellow bulbs , one white bulb (I don’t know their watt), laptop and a TV set with home theatre!

Thanks for helping me out to buy a good sumec gen. I appreciate.
What the gen capacity and how much did you buy this? I was at their Ikeja office last week but was disappointed with price.
Re: Professor On Any Type Of Generator. by AfricanLagosian: 4:40pm On May 18
Good Afternoon Prof. Please my sumec firman keeps burning appliances. This started after a mechanic changed the spark plug. He is saying I need to change the piston and rings

Generator is less than 8 months old

Oga Engineer! Kudos...

Been following your thread for a while now and I need advice on good diesel generator to buy.

I’ll like to buy a 10kva used diesel gen, and I’m not sure of the best brand to pick in terms of low running cost and easy maintenance.

It’s for home office use.

I’ll be looking to power about 4 1hp AC (LG low voltage) and single door fridge.

Which brand would you recommend and how much should I budget?

is the gen speed low and balance? if yes call engineer to service the caburator

I really don't know if it is low and balance, I will take it to an engineer to check nd probably service too. Thanks for your response.

Good morning,
Please any idea of the price of a good battery for generators?
Re: Professor On Any Type Of Generator. by givaunchy: 10:14pm On May 20
Hello Professors...I need to buy a generator. I need something that can power a 1.5kva Inverter (two batteries), Fridge freezer, 2 TVs (1 50in and 1 32in), 1 Lg surround sound system, 2 Fans. 1 laptop, and the lighting points in the house.

I'm thinking about getting the TEC 4.1kva generator. Can it do the job? And can I add one 2hp AC to the load (optional)?

Thank you!
