Kohler is introducing a new line of aftermarket genuine oil engineered specifically for generator applications. The premium oils are available in three formulations for different fuel types and are optimized for use in industrial, mobile, marine, and home generators. The fully-synthetic line was specially engineered to help generators run at peak performance, reducing downtime and helping to lower total cost of ownership compared with conventional oils used in the same applications.
The three new Kohler oils are engineered to the specific requirements of generators based on the fuel type they use. The company is introducing a 5W-30 formulation for generators powered by gasoline or gaseous-fueled engines, a 5W-40 formulation for generators powered by diesel-fueled engines, and a 15W-40 option for generators with gaseous-fueled engines.
Each of the new options is formulated with a synthetic base oil that will maintain critical viscosity while also resisting “burn off,” which can occur with other, lesser quality oils. Special additives in the new KOHLER oil also help protect against engine wear and corrosion, extending overall generator life.
