I closely followed Wayne Keith’s design and installation instructions for use with the V-8 Dakota and the gasifier has performed amazingly well for the over 6,000 miles I have driven it so far. I do mostly city driving so I am using a 6.25” restriction providing quick warm-up, good fuel economy and tar-free operation.

1996 Dodge Dakota Extended Cab Pickup with 318 V-8 Engine, Power Windows, power door locks, tilt, cruise control, air conditioning, radio/cd player. The truck was originally 4 x 4 with automatic transmission but I reconfigured the truck to 4 x 2 with manual transmission, even more fun to drive on wood! There is a receiver hitch and wiring for towing a trailer, and I added air bags under the rear axle for adjusting the rear ride height if needed when towing or carrying a lot of weight in the bed. Also added this year was a deep cycle marine battery so no worries about running the battery down when operating the blowers during startup. The truck has almost new Goodyear Wrangler tires with less than 3,000 miles on them. The truck could use paint due to some lifting of the clear coat finish on the hood and cab roof and there is a dent in the passenger side door from a deer strike.
I feel that the truck is in great condition mechanically, I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere.
Truck is no longer for sale. Thanks for looking!
