With diesel generators fuel is injected into the diesel engine using an injector whereas a carburetor is used for a gasoline engines. In a gasoline engine, fuel and air are sent into the engine together, and then compressed. The air and fuel mixture limits fuel compression, and hence the overall efficiency. Diesel generators win on fuel efficiency because the diesel generators motor has higher compression. Diesel generators engines therefore last longer, cost less to run and take longer to depreciate in value.
