I discovered this series called "The Colony" last week, that sets up a cross section of people of various backgrounds and skill sets trying to "survive" in an urban apocalypse setting. Since I caught the series late, I missed how they were able to make a wood gasifier that basically uses wood to power their electric power generator. As I understand it, this technology is quite old, but tried and true. People in Europe used wood gas to power their cars (no, not like a steam engine) back in WWII. Has anyone here tried this? Is there a good blueprint in laymen terms that we could publish here for the good of the community? I'm sure I could look it up and become an expert in a month, but I'd like to see if anyone here has tried this and to what success.
