Todd, I have a generator I bought this year specifically for the purpose of running it on woodgas- & I don't know nearly enough about it (woodgas). My generator is an older Hercules/White, the same engine they used in the Jeeps, a G1600. It's a 4 cylinder, 164CI, and runs a 12KW generator at 1800 RPM. I've read that with woodgas you can't run over 2800 RPM because the woodgas lights off slower than regular gasoline. Any truth there?
I'd be happy to pay someone who really KNOWS about this stuff for information, I also have this issue with being in the Pacific Northwest; we don't have hardwoods, so not sure if the wood we have would even work for it. Any info appreciated-
