Hi Don, After a 20 mile run I filled up my Ford. It used 9.6 pounds or 7.5 gallons of charcoal. That figures out to 2.1 pounds of charcoal per mile or 0.375 gallons per mile. This is mostly hardwood charcoal, but there is some aspen mixed in. I also used about a 1/2 cup of used motor oil in the fluid drip.
Hey, with Argos coming up, would you be interested in conducting a session on vehicle charcoal gasification? There may be enough interest for you, me, Jeff and others to sit around a scheduled event and talk (show) how we use charcoal for over the road vehicles. How our systems are designed, strengths and weakness and what can be improved. I want to tear my unit apart that day to see how the new design is working and there may be others interested too.
If there is enough interest, let me suggest doing this early afternoon on Saturday, say shortly after lunch?
