Again for lack of a appropriate section I chose this section as without sun there would be no wood.

Another very cool thing my friend showed me was wood gas. I feel there will come a time soon where the world economy will got to *Nice*s and the gas truck will come into town.

So here is a solution unless you live in Hong Kong :-).(Alan)

Here are a couple links but every metric ton of wood can produce 333 liters of burnable fuel... or so. Well even if the gas truck doesn't come into town. One tree is probably several tons and 333l of gas when you are not commuting of needing heat because the gas gernerator will already procuce heat as a by product can make this creature well worth investigating.

So here are the links:

Here's another one, that documents a lot of good ideas. I feel this guy is more the "scientist" but ironically has less success but gives a lot of good insight in the inner dynamics of it.

And here is a guy I feel who give a very good overview of how to most efficiently run one:

Hey Shak,
I'm wondering if this will work with hardwood leaves and trim limbs ... I have several in and around my yard and am curious if they would be good to use for that ...
I'm thinking every bit of wood gas made this way should be better than raking them up and burning them .

EDIT: Oh yea, We have several pine trees also but, I'd think the rosin in the needles would produce pitch or the tar that people complain about in these systems .

Hey Kudzu, I remember when we were all back at the other forum and 49er I think it was was getting pretty big into this, You can basically use any thing in this unit the has carbon in it (so almost anything) wood is just one of the most useful as it has a long burn time and wont go out as easy .. need as much stoking, but if you watch the 12 part Video series you will get a better understanding.

it may not be free energy but it works and is a heck of a lot cheaper then fuel for your truck .... or even a Generator to power you house etc... plus it's by product is heat so the possibilities are endless there as well, strap some T.E.G.'s to is to generate extra power , house the unit into a unit to circulate heat like a ducted heater does through your home .. cook on it... I am sure there is many more Ideas that I have not thought of here... Heat your hot water for another .... All Idea's I came up with for when I move to the bush in a few years, I will be setting one up myself :D

Hey kultus,
I've got an horizontal air tank , it's around 50gal ... I was thinking of turning it vertical .. It has around 2in threaded plugs in each end and a few on the sides ... I'm hoping this will make a good reaction chamber ( or whatever they call it , LOL ) ... It's around .375 to .500 thick , it's heavy as all git out ... The main problem with it is it's got a few pin holes that need welding from water sitting in it's bottom ... I've got a lot of project's like this that I'm trying to find the rest of the materials to complete to make work ...
If I can get the limb's and twigs and such to make wood gas, it would be awesome to run a generator for free power .
