Using unleaded gasoline contributes to longer
engine valve life by reducing lead and carbon
deposits.
Generac does not recommend using any
!
gasoline containing alcohol (such as "gasohol").
If you use any gasoline containing alcohol, it
must not contain more than 10 percent ethanol,
and it must be removed from the generator
during storage. Do NOT use any gasoline
containing methanol. If you use gasoline with
alcohol, inspect more frequently for fuel leaks
and other abnormalities.

1.5.2 OPTIONAL PROPANE FUEL SYSTEM

The PRIMEPACT 50LP series generator is equipped
with a liquid propane (LP) gas fuel system. LP gas is
usually supplied as a liquid in pressure tanks.
PRIMEPACT series generators require a vapor with-
drawal type fuel system. This type of gaseous fuel sys-
tem uses the vapors forming above the liquid fuel in
the storage tank. Air temperature around the storage
tank must be high enough to sustain adequate fuel
vaporization. In colder climates, you may need to use
an independent heat source to be sure the fuel suffi-
ciently vaporizes in the storage tank.
LP gas may consist of propane, butane or a mixture
of the two gases. Propane vaporizes at temperatures
as low as -20° F (-29° C), but butane returns to its liq-
uid state when the temperature drops below about
32° F (0° C). For that reason, a higher ratio of
propane is desired in the gas mixture when tempera-
tures drop below freezing.

1.5.3 FUEL CONSUMPTION

Model
PRIMEPACT 50 (02010-0)
PRIMEPACT 50 LP (04164-0)
Gasoline is in gal/h.
LP is in gal/h and cf/h.

1.5.4 ENGINE OIL REQUIREMENTS

Use only high quality detergent oil rated with
American
Petroleum
Classification SF , SG or SH. The recommended oil
weights include the following:
• During summer months: SAE 30. An acceptable
substitute is SAE 10W-30.
• During winter months: SAE 5W-30. DO NOT USE
SAE 10-W40.
