That's a 2.8KVA generator.


Why did you lie that 1k fuel runs from 6:00pm to 6:00am the following morning?
Oga I run my generator with 1k fuel from 6pm to 6am, SUMEC FIRMAN 3000E2 is a big gen. why will i lie? I'm encouraging the brother on what to do. let him keep the new one and do a replacement

oga change your carburetor and keep the new one then see if there will be changes. it doesn't matter .
you haven't giving a good reason to change it. What will the change one do which this follow come can't do if adjust.

It comes with warranty and the man warns me not to tempered with it.

We loosing the firing yesterday and the firing and Loud sound have reduced. And I filled the tank yesterday. I runs it from 7:20 to 11:20 PM. I still have half tank. I will run it today again and see how many hours in total it take the 10 litres to finish.

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.

Did you open the fuel tank half way or all the way down? Is the load on the Gen too much?

Surprised no one has asked the op to indicate the engine capacity of the gen.

The way a 2.5kva gen consumes fuel is not same with a 7.5kva. Whatever anyone tells you about the consumption level of your gen without the above information is ignorant/blind talk.

You cannot use a 7.5kva gen for example and expect a 1k fuel to run beyond 3-4hours. Doesn't matter whether you powered your 5 Air conditioners or just Nokia charger.

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?

Depends on the capacity of the gen.

On a 2.5kva gen, 1k fuel runs for at least 10 hours based on personal experience.

On a 1kva (Tiger gen), same amount runs for over 15 hours.

On a 4kva, may be 5 hours

On a 7.5kva, less than 4 hours.

Of course, I am aware of these.


However we are talking about the Op's complain that his generator only runs for about 5 hours on fuel of 1k.

The Op wants his generator to run for 10hours on 1k fuel most probably.

update

after a technician lower the generator.

I filled the tank 10litres for N1600 and it only runs for barely 13-14 hours in total. couple with the fact i had to bend the generator allowing the last fuel to flow to the carburetor.

this is outrageously.

What do you want actually?

By the way, if u keep on running this gen this way, it will pack up easily?
Get a supporting gen.
Hian!

Nigeria ain't getting better anytime soon

In 3 years or so someone will still quote this your comment as 'good time'

Dollar will probably be 2500 and fuel 1,500 per litter then

Oga, adjust this screw in the pix attached: Turn it clock wise till it feels tight, then loosen a tiny bit anti-clockwise ... enjoy new fuel economy ...

If u wan dey sure say e dey work, turn it all the way anticlock wise (but no let the screw/spring fall out) ... your gen go swallow 5 litres in 1 hour...

I have adjusted mine and i dey enjoy good fuel economy!
