This will be just a friendly tip to the customers. With the amount of ERCOT/Center Point customers still without power, it is a good time to check/add oil to your generator if you have been running for 4-5 days. Please look at the attached a guide to safely turn off your generator to check/add oil. It is full-synthetic 5W-30 oil. Stay safe.

  • 5W-30 Full Synthetic Oil
  • Do NOT add oil to a hot generator, let it cool first
  • Make sure to turn OFF the generator breaker first. Never turn a generator off at the Emergency stop switch in the back, unless it’s an emergency
