Hi Jeff,
Possible, yes.  Reasonable, no.  Keeping a consistent fuel-air ratio with two varying loads and a varying char bed porosity is a control system nightmare.  If you had two independent mixture control systems and started on gasoline you might get both started.

Dear List,
Is it practical to fuel two engines with one gas producer? I think a check valve in each fuel line would be needed but would it be a problem to get the second engine running? My system would consist of a charcoal gas producer with two 6.5hp engines.
