Exercising generators at less than 50% will ultimately result in “wet stacking” or “slobbering”. In order for a diesel engine to operate at peak efficiency it must be able to provide fuel and air in the proper ratio and at a high enough engine temperature for the engine to completely burn all of the fuel.
