  • 5 minute video: Great for once they don’t let you buy gas.

  • Looks like this particular truck uses a propane torch to ignite the wood, which would be just as unattainable and unsustainable as gasoline, though.

    Maybe some of the other woodgas vids have a different combustion method to ignite the wood?

  • Pretty cool. I wonder how much of a project it would be to convert a truck into that?

  • Looks like they were pretty common in Europe during WWII due to gas shortages. Sad that we might be looking at something similar today due to manufactured shortages.
