    Gassifiers are very cool things. I have seen videos of pickups being powered by them in the States but am not sure how you would get on trying to get it MOT'd.. That said thy are more like modern day steam engines so there may be an exception. Trying to get one insured would be fun:

    'What kind of engine does it have'
    'Well it has a home made boiler than burns wood, coffee etc.. which produces a gas that you burn in the engine...
    OK .... Please Hold....

    Think I'll burn fossil fuel and drink the coffee. ~Muir
