I just came across these videos that show the wood gas Isuzu Trooper built by our friends at Beaver Energy in action and had to share them. Be sure to crank up the volume to 11 for the first one!
Another video to watch is a clip from the Discovery Channel's Daily Planet show: Alan Nursall interviews Chip Beam about wood gas.
