Default Running Onan genset on Woodgas

I have been feeding woodgas into my 65.NH on and off this summer, in an attempt to figure out how to reliably convert wood chips to electricity.

I'm getting closer, but I ain't all the way there yet.

Don't tell anybody, but I have been feeding the genset some pretty tarry carbon monoxide and hydrogen gas. But so far, the engine still runs fine.

If you have nothing else to do, you can see my log of this summer's related events at:
