Hey David, Steves U’s comment made me go back and look at your fuel consumption numbers again. That leads me to a couple of questions. How does 7.5 gallons of softwood charcoal compare weight wise to 7.5 gallons of hardwood charcoal? When we were at Argos in 2012, Gary Gilmore had a chart made up comparing charcoal to wood and gasoline with weights and volume. I remember we had a lively discussion about the energy value of wood vs. charcoal. I think I have a picture of that chart somewhere. On the wood chunk side of things, we say that 16 to 20 pounds of wood is equal to a gallon of gasoline. So what you are saying is that about 8 gallons of softwood charcoal is about equal to a gallon of gasoline and about 4 gallons of hardwood charcoal = a gallon of gasoline? For sure, charcoal has a lot of energy per pound; maybe not so much by volume. I did not go back and re-read all your posts so I don’t remember what method you use to make your charcoal, but are you recapturing some of the heat while making charcoal? Nice job on the tractor!
