Hello all,  

Long time reader, first time poster.

I am  planning on building a small gasifier to run an IC engine for 
electricity and  heat. 
About 3/4  of my available energy is in the form of chipped forest waste 
and the balance  is waste oil. 
If  possible I would like to add the waste oil to a downdraft gasifier for 
drying  and cracking. 
Has this  been tried and were the results favorable or would I be wasting 
my  time. 
My  thought was to control oil flow by utilizing a vacuum pump from the  
Obviously  I could use the waste oil in a separate burner, but that would 
seem to be  unnecessary, perhaps not. 
Any  thoughts would be greatly appreciated. 

    Filter the oil,mix it with diesel, and burn it in a  diesel motor.  
Also, soak the oil into the wood chips and burn them for  heat.
