Successful test. 

Idled a 8hp engine on a mixture of charcoal and road side trash .......  for 6 hours.

Today is after test system examination and prep for test #2.

Tomorrow, barring unforeseen circumstances,  we will run an identical test with a irrigation pump as a load.

Well that was gratifying.  Thank you God.

We ran for 5 hours pumping 4" irrigation pipe full.  Shutdown early because relatives wanted to go home before sunset. 

My best guess is one 200L drum of charcoal would irrigate for about 6 maybe 7 hours nonstop.  And the quality of our charcoal was piss poor to downright sh_tty.  Made from a wood pile that has been out in the open for 5 or 6 years now.  No telling what the run time will be if I used decent wood.

That puts a book end on the projects I told y'all about.   Enjoy your reset.

That looked like a fun day.  Educational as wells, but would have been fun to see something like that come to life in your own yard.  Makes gardening a lot less expensive on the electrical/gas bill.
