Right, where overhauling on motorways with the Volvo can be embarrassing sometimes, it can be done by the Chevy pulling a heavy trailer at 70 mph. Just do not do that when your exit is only a minute away. The excess heat will stow the mixture overrich, stalling a low idling engine…
Traffic jam or prolonged idling is no problem. Gasifier keeps its temperature at very comfortable levels. The hearth insulation is paying off.
Still driving without any mixture control, not even any manual choking. Flaps are always fully opened. Just can’t find out why this setup seems to do it by itself, just asking for a tender right foot, following the acceleration. Need a way to lean the mixture on long cruising distances. Got the impression the mixture is always on the rich side. Fuel consumption is high too.
On idle after a drive, I see exhaust fumes. Unburned carbon black? Exhaust pipe is black with carbon. Never observed that with the dry filtered Volvo. It also could be caused by the overrich mixture.
The new grate in combination with a high gas speed is a dream. It just doesn’t ever ask for scraping, despite a for an Imbert very long reduction zone. The spilled fine char is swept from the generator bottom to the cyclones.
