Nice to meet you all in advance.
I was wondering if anyone has attempted turbocharging or supercharging their engines in an attempt to make up the power difference between running woodgas and petroleum.
I live in the UK and am planning my first wood gas truck build. Unfortunately, here our engines are not exactly renowned for being large in displacement.
Would supercharging be better as the draw on the gasifier would be more uniform than turbocharging? Would the gasifier have to be oversized to compensate? Would you risk meltdown?
I’m eager to hear what you guys think and if you’ve ever experimented with this.
