Yep it's fascinating technology Ka. When My Dad came out here just after the WW II he got a contract as a Road Worker. Bought a 5 tonne truck but only had a 50gal/month petrol ration, (not much juice to run a 5 tonner!) so he got a gasifier fitted to it. My earliest memories doesn't cover the truck but the unit sat in a shed and I used to tinker around with it. Got to understand how it worked.
