EW Multiport Electronic Fuel Injection

Low-CO, Low-Profile, Low-Speed

The Westerbeke 5kW Marine Generator, or 5.0 MCG, stands out as one of the most compact low-CO, low-speed gasoline generators available. Westerbeke’s specialized marine design enables this high-performance generator to match the size of its high-speed competitors. The 5.0 MCG’s lower operating speed, coupled with a heavy-duty industrial base engine, ensures a longer-lasting and more reliable product, making it an ideal choice for marine power needs.

Multiport EFI and Returnless Fuel System

The westerbeke 5kw marine generator features sequential multiport electronic fuel injection (MPI). MPI provides optimum fuel efficiency, easy starting, improved reliability and reduced emissions. In conjunction with MPI, electronic speed control maintains the engine at a constant speed (precise frequency regulation) and virtually eliminates “bogging down” when load is applied.  A water cooled returnless fuel system aids in the prevention of vapor lock for improved performance in high ambient temperatures. MPI also features advanced diagnostic capabilities.

Smooth and Quiet Operation

Featuring a 3-cylinder engine with a balance shaft that virtually eliminates vibration, the westerbeke 5kw marine generator is an extremely smooth running 5.0kW. The engine also operates at an electronically controlled 1800 rpm for exceptionally quiet operation.  In comparison, 3600-rpm engines are generally noisier than their 1800-rpm counterparts and require sound shields to attain similar noise levels.

Five Year Limited Warranty

westerbeke 5kw marine generator is backed by Westerbeke’s 5-year limited warranty. The presence of Westerbeke in over 65 countries around the world provides customers with easy access to parts, service and technical support.
