  • Colin, you can collect the woodgas into a plastic trashbag then run a hose from it to small powertools like string trimmers, chainsaws etc. I've seen old pictures from ww2 of a bus with a huge bag of woodgas on the roof. Cool. It would be cool if you could run a car off anhydrous ammonia too.

  • Instead of using negative pressure to pull the fan through, why don’t you use positive pressure to push the gas through? I feel like this is something that you’ve probably already address’s, but I’m curious why you didn’t do that.

  • Technically "corps" is pronounced "core", it's a French word (for "body", as in "body of men"). In Colin's case though he should keep it as "corpse" cos it's probably more accurate for a flying bike running off chainsaw motors with no proper guards. I forget where he got the motors from, I know somebody sponsored him and bunged him a pair of free ones that were just a bit underpowered. Kind of silly that, an engine company not knowing the right amount of power.

  • Just gonna guess, before I carry on watching, but running hot air over steel wool isn't a great idea. It'll oxidise away to nothing in seconds, then clog up whatever the tiny invisible bits fly into. In science lessons they used to heat steel wool in a tube to prove that something or other was producing oxygen. It would rust almost instantly. Sure there's limited oxygen in this system, but surely enough to knacker that steel wool quick enough. I'd just use a water bong style cleaner. They trap LOTS of tar! Or even just spraying water into a chamber full of rising gases. Power stations use high voltage plates to ionise and attract smoke particles but they're like hundreds of metres high which is a bit impractical. Water sounds best. Will cool the gases too. That's handy, since an internal-combustion engine relies on the heat of combustion expanding the gases inside the cylinder, so you want as cool an input as you can to start with. Though I realise there will be air mixed in, still, it would be hotter than ideal.

  • Ideally, you could let the grass cuttings dry out a bit, and use them as fuel for the next mowing. Depends how fuel-efficient the lawnmower is, and how long he lets it get inbetween. Same principle a sheep works on.

  • There's a better way of making gas from wood, or charcoal. The way in this video is just evaporating all the volatile hydrocarbons and whatnots, carbohydrates and pyrolysing them, so that's your fuel. In WW2, due to petrol rationing, some people had their cars converted to "producer gas". Stoked with charcoal, not wood. The plan was, you limit oxygen and apply very hot steam. The carbon in the charcoal rips some of the oxygen from the H2O, leaving H. Also some of the partially-burned carbon (because of low oxygen) would form CO, carbon monoxide. That will also burn to make carbon dioxide. Finally some of the C and H react to form CH4, methane. CH4, H, and CO all burn in oxygen to give heat. In fact, the old gas works towns used to have up til the 1970s, used just this same method, on coal or coke, to produce domestic gas. It's why people used to put their heads in the oven to kill themselves, the CO is horribly toxic. Gas leaks were more serious back then. Eevntually natural gas, from oil wells, was captured and employed instead, in the UK we have tons of it up in the North Sea by Scotland. Incidentally gas works used to stink, I presume that's from sulphur in the coal. SO! There's vapourised wood sap and the like, or proper actually gaseous fuel! It has no tar if you make it from coke or charcoal, although in practice perhaps a little might still be in there. It gets energy out of the carbon in the wood itself, rather than just the volatile parts. Might be interesting to build one of those, in WW2 you'd fit it in your car boot (I suppose with some insulation), and store the gas in a big floppy bag on the roof. Obviously the carbon monoxide means an outdoor use would be more practical than trying to, say, heat the bunker with it. Just make sure whatever's burning it runs lean, lots of oxygen, and doesn't leak. It was in millions of kitchens around the world, back in the day, so it's probably safe enough. Just nowadays you hear "carbon monoxide" and immediately panic.

  • And there's another thing! What I cannot understand among all these wood gas enthusiasts is why nobody has tried turning the stuff into gasoline! Its actually not that difficult. The Fischer - Tropsch process need a pressure of around 5 atmospheres (car tyre pressure plus a bit), and a temperature of 300 degrees centigrade. As feedstock it needs carbon monoxide which is what woodgas is mostly composed of. Discuss please

It's better to convert your biomass into steam to run turbines to charge batteries; you get efficient complete combustion, and your EV starts instantly at the flick of a switch!
