[Gasification] Two Engines One Gasifier

Hi Jeff.

As far as 2 engines goes, as long as the gasifier is able to supply the
needed volume, there should be no problem, a check valve (light flap door)
on each engine would probably be a good idea, as one engine running would
suck air from the intake of the other, until it was also running.

The more pistons sucking the smoother the "pumping" action in the gasifier
(a V12 would be smoother than a V6)

Under draw (one engine running) and over draw (both engines driven to full
load) would be the only issues I would see....
