Do NOT even think about shop/garage heating with a wood gasifed vehicle.
Do NOT even think about shop/garage heating with a charcoal powered vehicle.
You purpose intent with these is to produce at least an 18-20% strong carbon monoxide “killer” gas.
This is 8-10X as strong as the stinkiest old gasoline vehicle.
Do not park a wood/charcoal gasified vehicle system INSIDE until is has gone COMPLETELY hand on cold anywhere you can touch feel it!
Otherwise the still hot internal charcoal will be out gassing CO. Pressurizing the system. You WILL have outgas CO leaking.
A proper wood stove/furnace system is always under negative keep-safe internal outflowing draft-induced pressure.
Why I hate rocket-stoves!! Not safe in shut down, cooling down modes! Geek-killers.
The only two ways to safe park a gasified vehicle inside is to:
- never have lit off; and heated up the gasifier system. Used a secondary, on-off safe-fuel; (battery-electric, propane, gasoline, diesel) to move it inside.
- after gasifier using, let that vehicle sit outside for at least 12 hours/overnight until completely gone cold and non-reacting.
This IS in all of the Swedish/German gasifier safety regulations and training/operations manuals.
People died learning this.
People and pets will die ignoring this.
