Hi Wood Gassers,
I just had my first engine run of 2015. I ran the 8hp chipper/chunker on the Gas Station Light.
It ran SWEET!!! The condensate coming out of the final filter was clear. Earlier stages were dark but I think that was because it was washing off my earlier sin of grabbing an unscreened bucket of fuel. I need to fire my operator!!
The final gas temperature was barely perceptibly warm....maybe 105F and there wasn't even a cooler baffle installed.
All the moisture in the hose was clear.
I tried to run my 4kW but it just wanted no part of it. I have no idea why. I replaced the coil and plug but still nothing. Every other generator I have has run fine on wood. ??? Probably time for a run to Harbor Freight for a sacrificial 4kW. I have three little space heaters on the way so I can start load testing. Pete S made a good point that running an engine is fine, but achieving a task is why we are here.
Last item....I had been seeing some fuel hang ups for some reason but as soon as I connected an engine, the gas pulsing seemed to make the problem go away.
