Back in 1981 Mother Earth News ran an article on Wood Powered Trucks. I’m sure some folks laughed at the idea then. But today it’s not a bad idea. Especially when in most places where I grew up you can get a 25 dollar yearly permit to pick up fallen trees to cut up for firewood on forest service property. Add it all up and a few weeks of gathering wood and you should have enough wood to power your pickup truck for the rest of the year.
Wood Powered Vehicles is obviously not a viable alternative fuel, but it sure is an interesting topic of discussion for the dinner table.
