Running a Gasoline Engine on Firewood | Woodgas Biofuel



In this video I finally try to run a gasoline engine on woodgas. Thanks to my sponsor Squarespace you can make a great website easily! Check them out at:

I’ve been working toward this video for a long while with my woodgas series. Woodgas as a biofuel is useful primarily for the reason of being able to run gasoline engines as I’m working on here, as well as being easily piped into modern gas systems to run stoves, furnaces, etc.. Whenever using woodgas it’s important to remember it is in large part carbon monoxide. CO detectors are essential inside the cab of any vehicle running woodgas as fuel or inside any rooms using woodgas fuelled appliances.
