Truck powered by wood gas

The idea of running an automobile with wood gas fascinated me even as a child. So I was particularly pleased to see this truck with a wood gasifier in Vienna. The lorry was part of a meeting of historic military vehicles. [German]

The event “Auf Rädern und Ketten”

I found this truck during an event at the Museum of Military History (HGM) in Vienna. The title “Auf Rädern und Ketten” referred to the wheels and tank treads of the displayed trucks. This meeting takes place once a year.

Museum of wood gas vehicles

Is there a way to see more automobiles with wood carburettors? Yes! In the tiny Principality of Liechtenstein, a museum shows around 70 vehicles with wood gasifiers.
