My understanding is that charcoal is what's left over after the gasification process happens.

But maybe you could make charcoal 'cartridges' out of metal buckets, and pull the spent one and replace with a fresh 'cartridge'.

i've still planned to put a gasifier on a trailer to power a two-wheel tractor.

That sounds cool. But would you dare to drive it during the winter there? Have you already seen some video footages of Chinese 2-wheel tractors converted into some sort of rudimentary truck with an enclosed cabin? Maybe it could be a good approach to overcome this issue...

I meant something like this, even though this one doesn't have a driven trailer:


Look at this one from Brazil, without a cabin but it has a driven trailer (which would be desirable to overcome the disadvantage inherent to the rear weight bias when fully-loaded under certain terrain conditions):


But I still believe a fully-enclosed cab is more likely to fulfill your needs for an all-year-round commuter.
