The narrative of the Holocaust exhaust gassings is that persons were gassed to death from the CO content of engine exhaust. CO is known to be acutely toxic in very small concentrations. The narrative is that the T4 program used bottled CO to euthanize people and that program was transferred to a program of mass murdering Jews - mainly using exhaust gas rather than bottled CO gas.rollo the ganger wrote: ↑Mon Dec 10, 2018 9:04 amSticking with the technical aspects of this discussion I'd like to point out to Blake that the studies on diesel exhaust in the 1940's explain exactly what they were doing with the engines they were testing. They explain the procedure used and that procedure includes putting a load on the engine along with quantitative values:

See Table 2 and Figure 2 in this report.
And... at the risk of repeating myself a bit too often... people exposed to an atmosphere of the exhaust where the Oxygen and Carbon DIOXIDE content is at lethal levels would die before any significant Carbon MONOXIDE was generated. The lethal agent of diesel exhaust is not carbon monoxide but carbon dioxide and a deficit of oxygen at certain running conditions of the engine.
You are now changing that narrative to say that the plan was to mass murder persons by gassing them with CO2 - which doesn't fit the narrative. You are showing a graph which was obtained from loaded diesel engines whose fuel injectors (called fuel pumps in the article) had been kludged to supply more fuel into the cylinder. And even with these modifications having been done, one sees a nonzero oxygen component and a mere 12.4% maximum of CO2. A gasoline engine's exhaust would contain ZERO oxygen, 14% CO2, and 1-2% CO under no load and at idle. For what reason would one choose to use a kludged diesel ICE over a normally configured gasoline ICE given these facts? Are you saying that the intent was to NOT supply an exhaust with a higher CO content in these alleged gassings?
