Beating a dead horse about the fuel vapor:
I got lost at the beginning of that latest video when he said:
Well, whose theory is that?
and at the end where he said:
Come on, guys, a gasoline engine runs on fuel vapor anyway! The liquid is simply vaporized in the carb/injectors, etc…
We know that the stoichiometric ratio for gasoline is about 15 gas to one air. So, looking at all that bubbling going on in the canisters, how wet do YOU think the air going to the engine is?
I read someplace that Henry Ford got his first engine going by having his wife dribble the fuel onto a cotton ball held into the intake system.
Onan engines DO run on woodgas:
That’s a 6.5NH, genset which is the earlier version of the 6.5NHE.
I know I’m not in the mainstream here, but I use wood chips. But I, too, would avoid pine needles for all the reasons previously mentioned.
