I’m pretty much a newbie in all respects; to the forum, to wood gasification, etc. I had the pleasure of recently meeting up with Chris and taking a ride in his Dakota and was thoroughly hooked on the concept. My questions are basic and plentiful and I would greatly appreciate any input.
- I am looking for the project truck first. I know the Dakotas are preferred, what other models/years are good, I.e. Tacoma, s10, ranger, f150 etc.
- Do I really need to be concerned about the OBD2 trucks or is there a good bypass. I understand engines theoretically, but not a mechanic by any means.
- I live in Florida and all the scrap yards refuse to sell to the individual, so any alternative ideas for finding the scrap to build with, otherwise I have to buy new materials…
- I have tried to contact members of the forum in the area to meet/talk with but have had zero success. Anyone in central Florida that is/has or wants to build a project please let me know. It’s seeming pretty lonely down here.
I also want to thank chris for his hospitality and tell everyone how impressive his chunker and truck are, even my older father who is a doubting farmer was impressed.
Thanks in advance,
