Thank you, Peter.

I will investigate.

To be fair, almost all combustion produces poisonous gasses.


Edit to add: Perhaps 'poisonous' is the wrong word; "almost all comustion produces gasses that are not healthy for humans to breathe a lot of..." Argon is not poisonous, but you can't live in a boat full of it.
