Default Re: Wooden It Be Nice?

I'm pretty hepped-up about wood gas myself, going to set up an '86 Dodge 1/2 ton six cylinder pickup. Prior to 1900 producer [coal] gas was very popular for IC powerplants, many municipalities used it to fuel generators. As gasoline and natural gas became more popular producer gas faded into history. WW2 was about the end of the gas producers reign. My father told me that he had seen a few in use, either in Korea or immediatly post-boom Japan, but he didn't really understand how they worked. I've heard about coal? gas buses in Korea being so doggy that the passengers would have to help push on some of the steeper hills! FEMA has some decent plans on their website.
