A change I want to believe in

.... Now it's time for someone else to enjoy it as he moves on to his next project - a Ford F-350 Diesel that he'll convert so it will run purely on firewood/coal (or any other material you can burn) and the gas it expels as it burns OR Diesel, if you choose, with the flick of a switch. ....

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.


The guy has a F350 with a coal stove in the back and through gasification... methane runs the truck. Was used 60+ years ago in Sweden in WWII. I used a similar system on my Lister CS diesel generator (one eyebrow took 6 months to grow back but that is another issue). Roll up, roll up. I see LLs next project.

First come, first serve so I guess that means waiting in line hoping it is not gone.
