  •  If you had CO release, but no combustible, it'd (0+ / 0-)

    zero.

    You're making the assumption that leakage will be combustible. If it's just CO, CO2, and H20, well, none of those things are combustible.

    •  No combustion is 100% . (0+ / 0-)

      Some unburnt is in the exhaust .

      If that unburnt fuel is detected , then CO is there also .

      Am I ? I don't think so .
      If you had CO release, but no combustible, it'd zero.
      How could you have CO and no "combustible" ?

      If you had a fuel burn of 100% ?
      But when does it ever happen in real life ?

    •  As a test , (0+ / 0-)

      lets say you have a sealed room
      with one exhaust pipe running through it .
      You test the air inside the room daily .
      One day you find that there is a small amount of fuel in the air and it could only come from the exhaust pipe .
      Is there , without testing , increased CO levels in that room .

      Another test ,
      You go in one day and find that the CO level as shown on a meter has gone up in the room but there is no unburnt fuel .
      What has gone wrong ?
