Amidst the removal of the fuel subsidy that birthed the new back-breaking cost of petrol, a Nigerian man seems to have switched to powering his generator with cooking gas.
A video making the rounds on social media captured the testimony of a man who opted for powering his generator operating on gas rather than petrol.
Due to the high cost of petrol, which exceeds N500 per litre, many individuals have opted to modify their generators to run on gas, which is more affordable than fuel. This is made possible with a device that makes the fuel combustion mechanism of the engine of the generation to be powered by cooking gas.
In the video, the man explains that he was able to achieve an uninterrupted power supply for approximately 12 hours using only 2KG worth of gas.
