Here you get the secrets of powering an automobile on coal, coke, charcoal, and even wood using successful techniques developed in Australia and Europe.
The preface reads: "The dangers which in 1940 threatened to cut off our petrol supplies, and thereby revived public interest in the gas producer have now passed the threatening stage and are in fact in operation. Lack of shipping space; lack of credits, the necessity of conserving our international balances, the entry of Japan into the war against us all combine to make the conservation of our petrol supplies a stern necessity.
Gas producers are now to be seen everywhere supplying in the aggregate millions of miles of travel-service which would not otherwise be supplied. It may well be that the gas producer's greatest service to Australia is only just beginning..."
These days gasoline supplies could be greatly reduced at any moment, not by a war with Japan, but by mid-Easterner's not being able to get along with themselves. We're far more dependent on Arab oil than most people realize. It could be the early 1970's all over again with gasoline shortages.
Build an experimental gas generator and bolt it to an old car. Other people build race cars that move fast. When the oil shortage comes, your charcoal powered auto might be the only auto moving at all!
Nuts and bolts how-to. Details you're not going to find anywhere else. A lot of rare information for the money. Get a book and shelve it, even if you don't build a generator. You'll have it when you want it.
