I Bought Elepaq Generator And It's Consuming Fuel. by fineboynl(m): 11:29pm On Feb 18, 2020
I have only run it for lesser than 5 hours 30 mins. and have lost half tank already. I bout fuel N1600 10 litres.

I only power my small fridge and ceiling fan.

it's not economically viable as I will spend like 1k everyday alone just to power it from 6-7 o'clock to 11-12 o'clock.

1k fuel runs for a period of 5 hours at most and you complain that your generator consumes fuel.

How many hours do you want it to run on 1k fuel?

Was this with a similar generator (with same power rating)?

Call a generator operator to change your carburetor, it doesn't matter if you buy the generator today, just do it and thank me later. original carburetor is #1,500

That's a 2.8KVA generator.


Why did you lie that 1k fuel runs from 6:00pm to 6:00am the following morning?

Adjust the fuel intake valve .... clockwise i think (find out which one to turn o)! Cos most likely, your gen is running super rich: pumping more than fuel needed into the cylinder!

Had same issue with a 1.8kva i bought back then till i invested some time into some youtube videos!

Today, the fuel consumption is better! It does go down if i use it to run my deep freezer though!

If that does not work, then change the carb as suggested above

Its very possible bro!

1k fuel is about 6.9 liters! Most gen will run 2-2.5hours per litre! 2 x 6.9litres = 12 hours so its very possible.

Especially if not fully loaded and u turn down the speed!

I'm also not sure but on my own elepaq 1.8kva, it turned it fully clockwise! Tightened!

I suspect your generated isn't original. Maybe a clone! that's why u are experiencing that!

Why can't they fix the issue for u na?

I guess we are talking about 2 different things!

What u are adjusting is the governor!

The stuff i'm talking about is on the carburettor!

Lemme see if i can send u a pix of what it looks like on my gen!

But that would be tomorrow o!

Meanwhile, drop the pix of your gen!

which one is the governor? will loosing the governor increase fuel consumption? but after I loose it the fire power didn't reduce at all.

Re: I Bought Elepaq Generator And It's Consuming Fuel. by mejai(m): 5:42am On Feb 20, 2020
Someone told u what to do but u decided to ' kpa aka ani' (fickle with the gen).

bros this is normal thing for new generators......

Follow this instructions....

1.. Tighten that golden nut with spring on it.... Tighten.....

2... Reduce the speed of the generator... Start the generator, then at the back of it there is a black plastic nut there loosen it very good...


Then you generator will be fine..

So you think that 5 litres of fuel is too much for 5 hours 30 minutes? You don't even want to spend on fuel at all. Why not buy a generator that runs on water?

The tank sizes are not the same
The bigger the gen, the more fuel consumption

Disregard people advising you to replace the factory fitted carburettor to another to reduce the fuel consumption.

If you are worried about the fuel consumption, do sell it and buy a smaller generator instead.
