Yes Peter that characterizes it well.
I do have memories of an old four banger jimmy with a filter plugging that I know my v-10 on wood could have out pulled.
Kida like asking which comes first , the chicken or the egg.
From a dead start accelerating hard the motor is asking the gasifier for fuel. The gasifier is asking the motor for vacuum before it can produce fuel. The motor says it must have fuel before it can supply rpms to create vacuum.
There are some trick you can learn, but as a general rule you won’t be smoking tires on wood.
A wood gas vehicle should have at least one lower gear than standard to be able to get some rpms up without having to use a lot of fuel to do it.
After using my ram with the low range gearing ( 4x4) I will never gasify another truck for FARM use without the low gearing
