How much oil do I need to put in my new Lifan Es2000 generator?

Asked by Jim October 5, 2020
1
Answer

It is supposed to take 20oz of SAE 10W30 oil. You must fill it to the rim where, if on a level surface, the oil nearly spills out. Otherwise, the oil-level switch could shut it down after a few seconds.

How long does this run for? I would like to know at 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 load

Been running it 24 hours a day adding oil every other day! So far she is holding up very well! We will see how it lasts it burns thru 5 gallons of gas a day that is pricey by the month! Now if I get this gas vaporizing working this will be life changing for disasters and wherever portable power is needed!

Received box and it was sealed in black plastic (A Big +). Added Oil about 1/2 quart. Filled to top of oil dip stick. Its nice that they have Oil plugs on both sides of engine as you can watch oil level rising from opposite plug hole. Added new gasoline and noticed they have a fine mesh filter screen in filler opening (A Really Big Plus ++). Turned gas valve on (behind air filter) on top of carburetor. Moved choke to right position - (Closed) (its directly above air filter housing) Turned Running Switch to "ON" position. Took slack out of pull starter. On Second Pull it started. Immediately pushed the choke to open position. Increased RPMs to mid range using aluminum colored handle (just below air filter housing). Let it run for 15 minutes. Tested with Hand Drill for 5 minutes. The model I received is CA CARB Compliant (Ordered in CA) This by far In My Opinion is worth the extra $100 than the HF generator as: - Its twice as powerful - Holds more Gas - 4 Stroke (No Mixing Oil with Gas & No Smoke) - Much, much Quieter ! - Better Warranty !! - Has Rubber Feet to help diminish any vibration rattles. Next Day - Started on First Pull !!!!!!! LOVE IT ! You can't go wrong with this light weight portable generator ! Will put it through more rigorous work later this week. Called the company to Thank them for a quality product and tell them how much I love my new Lifan 2000 generator !!

Portable. Easy 1-pull recoil start. Runs quiet.
This generator comes fully-assembled. Construction is all metal with a tubular frame, and the size is about equal to that of a small microwave oven. The installation instructions state that oil is included, but it was not included, however you do receive a spark plug removal tool. The instructions cover several models of generator, some of which have a wheel kit, and some which require an acid battery for operation, neither of which is included or required for use of this generator. While the instructions contained helpful information, I would have preferred if they were specific for this generator. Since there’s a separate reservoir for oil, no need to mix gas and oil. 20 ounces of 10w30 motor oil is required for operation. There is no fuel gauge. The 98 cc engine is equipped with a low-oil shut down and an automatic voltage regulator that the manufacturer claims delivers cleaner, more reliable power and protection against surges. The control panel located in the front of the generator has 2 - 20-volt 20 amp standard outlets. The recoil pull start is easy to operate, usually turn the engine over on the first or second pull. Noise level is low and very tolerable. I was standing next to the generator and hblem carrying on a normal conversation. The generator burned clean and did not produce and dirty or smelly emissions. This generator isn’t designed to power delicate electronics, but it will provide power to things such as a refrigerator, A/C, space heater, television and components, lamps, small power tools, a radio and a toaster. Overall, this is a nice little generator. The build quality is excellent, and it includes features found in more expensive units. The small footprint and weight at only 51 lbs. makes this unit very portable and is a perfect size for tailgating or emergencies and as a source of power. See my video demonstrating the starting procedure for this generator.

Compact, quiet, economical mobile power ideal for lighter electric loads
The compact LIFAN brand generator provides 2000 peak watts and 1600 continuous watts of power. The one gallon gas tank provides about eight hours of use at 50 percent load. Unit is equipped with a fuel shut off valve, manual choke, and an on/off switch. The generator has a 3 horsepower four cycle engine and doesn’t require an oil/gas mix. Unit does need small engine oil, about 20 ounces, and is equipped with an auto shut off if the oil level is low. The motor started with a few pulls and ran quietly. The unit is rated at 62 dBs, quiet enough to use as a tailgate generator. Outlets provided are two 110 V outlets, with a circuit breaker reset if needed. This unit handles with ease small electric needs, from tailgating to provide power for a radio and TV, to providing light or the ability to run most refrigerators. It good for camping or for providing limited emergency power. Its light enough to carry at fifty pounds using the side handles, this unit does not come with wheels. My only complaint is the gas cap is hard to reinstall. Dimensions are 19 inches long, 15 inches wide, and 18 inches high, providing for easy storage and mobility. 3 Year Warranty.

quiet generator
Out of the box, after adding oil, it started on the second pull and was ready to work. It does not run anywhere near as high of RPMs as ones I have had in the past. It is also much quieter than my other 1500 watt generator Plugged a drill and a table saw in to it and pulled around 11 amps and it worked perfectly. It has four 120-Volt receptacles, but does not include a 12v charging output. The fuel tank is a gallon, which lasts about 8 hours during normal use. It does come supplied with a jug of engine oil, so make sure you pick one up when you pick up the generator.
