Pete, (and list)

What, and how big, are the fuel chunks ?

most gasifiers do NOT like wood chips, or really "fine" fuel, the
interstitial space the gasifier is designed to run with, is generally much
larger than that of chips or fine feedstock, using the correct sized fuel,
in-turn, lowers the reaction core temperature, thus creating more, and more
consistant amounts, of CO. (the main flamable gas, in woodgas). (H2 and CH4
are simply "bonus" gases.....)
