Why Service the Injectors?
What sort of issues can be avoided or solved by means of a regular generator servicing programme that includes maintenance of the fuel injectors?

The injectors can be disassembled and ultrasonically cleaned by your service engineer. This is the best way to check that the injectors have been thoroughly cleaned and are in good condition. A visual check for the correct fuel spray pattern can also be made whilst the injectors are uninstalled.
Your installer or generator supplier will normally offer a preventative service and maintenance programme as part of the generator purchase, but check to ensure that the fuel injection system is covered by this.
