    I think the first wood gas vehicle came around 1901.
    Here is a video of a fifth gen wood gas truck.

      Yeah, I’m fascinated by wood gas vehicles. It would work well here in the southeast where trees grow quickly but the ubiquitous wet in the rainy season would definitely be a factor.

      There are soooo many projects I’d like to do if I didn’t have that pesky job to go to every day, but without the pesky job, I couldn’t afford it anyway.
