What is going on my dudes!!!
You all are the coolest people on the planet and our guy Wayne here is seriously a man beyond his time.
With that said, I can only hope one day to join such high ranks as my fellow seasoned gasifier people, and until that time, I’ve got some serious beginner questions. Bear with me.
I have read the Have Wood, Will Travel book, watched all the videos, and am scouring the forums for answers to my questions, but as yet, to no avail. I will appreciate any and all discussion/direction/advice, etc. Thank you in advance.
Question #1: I scored some awesome stainless steel at the junk yard when looking for a 12" diameter fire tube. This stainless steel tube is 10" diameter and 1/4" thick. I know I can make a fire tube/gasifier system based off the size of the tube, it just might not be hefty enough to run my dodge, but maybe a generator. With that said! If i extend the length of the 10" diameter fire tube to 24", i have the same amount of cylindrical area as a 12" diameter 18" long fire tube. Will a 10" diameter 24" long fire tube equal the power output of a 12" diameter 18" long fire tube and if not, why???
I do plan to find a 12" diameter tube to build a system, i just have not found it, yet.
Question #2: I have a 2003 Dodge Dakota 3.9L V6 175 HP truck. I am getting a little freaked out reading about the OBDII and the on board computer reprogramming that may be involved in converting to wood-gas. IS IT POSSIBLE?! IF so, like how difficult of a reprogramming are we talking here?
God bless you all, Thank you
