It works alright, but I like to encourage people to put manure into their ag instead of their stoves. Usually in development situations they have need of both. But it works well.
Gerard, I haven’t seen anyone ask the first question. All of these systems and ideas will work to the extent to which they will work. But first,
What are you trying to do with the technology.?
You mention this is your work truck; how many miles must you drive per day/week?
How much time do you have to commit to fuel processing (gathering, sizing, pyrolizing, sizing, storing fuel)?
How necessary is the truck? Meaning, if it won’t start today or if it’s not working right, are you going to lose your job?
Are you going to go bankrupt? Lose your house if you don’t make the mortgage payment?
How dependable must this system be for you?
The factual reality is that all of these alternative ideas will work, and this is the place to get help doing them. But as far as I know, no one here is driving exclusively on alternative fuel and operating a work truck daily. There may be exceptions. Mr Wayne comes pretty close, but he has been doing this for decades. You mention that you don’t have the time to “play” with developing the tech. To become proficient enough with its use to be able to depend on it, it will take many, many hours.
Not trying to be a wet blanket guys, but if he’s looking for real world solutions that will affect his life dramatically, he should look at it with all the facts. I encourage you to keep looking into it. Not trying to say you couldn’t do it. But it is not like pulling up to the natural gas tank and filling it up. It will require long hours of labor gathering and processing wood. Unless you have some special circumstance…
