Westerbeke’s 7.5 MCGA is a low-CO, gasoline-fueled generator with sequential multiport electronic fuel injection designed to enhance fuel efficiency, enable easy starting, improve reliability and reduce emissions. An electronic speed control keeps the three-cylinder industrial engine at constant rpm for frequency regulation and eliminates bogging down under loads. The rpm range is 1,800 (60 hertz) to 1,500 (50 hertz). Designed for marine use, the 7.5 MCGA is 17.9 inches tall. Among the safety warnings and shutdowns are overspeed, low oil pressure, high exhaust and coolant temperature. Price: $14,313. westerbeke.com
