Looks good. How long can the gasifier go on a charge or can it be refueled while running?
I would tend to want to go with a slower, heavier... more robust genset.... but using what you have makes sense too. My thought being that if gas is scarce, parts might be too. The gasifier seems very simple and easy to work on, generators can be made very simple too and have mostly only two bearings that ever need replacing. An engine of the same simplicity or at least made to be worked on with flywheel start would complete the unit nicely. I'm thinking of one of those intermittent firing things. A way to make use of the heat makes sense too. maybe I am asking too much at once

I am planning to build a toyota 22r powered on wood-gas for my Gencharger at the cabin. It'll be really nice to run all winter on alder chips instead of Gasoline.
Trying to shed my petroleum habit...
