FEMA Wood Gas Generator

Postby Gunns » Mon Mar 25, 2013 6:57 am

I am sure this has been posted here before but I thought it would be a good idea to post it. This is the FEMA guide on building a gasifier. I thought printing it out and sticking it a survival binder would be a good idea.

Good find! I've been researching these lately, but didn't find this.

Thanks for posting. Printed & put in binder. Have a old (1960's vintage) generator I think I might try this on next summer. Montgomery Ward with a brigs & stratton engine. Has anyone ever tried this, and how much time did it take to make? What type engine did you put it on?

Been doing LOTS of research and about to start building mine, have a couple questions if anyone has made one and doesn't mind sharing.

Also "7 trumpet Prepper" on YouTube has a great video on building one.

Hi preppers,

For those who are curious about that FEMA doc....Using only that document I built one that runs a 100Hp, GM 250ci, 6 cyl.

Including the engine and tranny I got about $1200.00 in it, because I had a welding shop do the welding on the drums.

The "government" is not one single harmonious entity. It is a massive bureaucracy of some times conflicting organizations with differing missions formed at different times by different elected officials with differing political points of view. How else can you explain Border Patrol officers risking their lives to secure our borders while the White House strives to grant amnesty to virtually anyone who can make it across? How do you explain the FBI and CIA actually working against each other? Why does one faction of government purchase trailers for Katrina victims and another does not allow them to be used because of code and zoning concerns? Why did the state department refuse to allow the military to perform its duty and protect American diplomats in Benghazi? Just more proof that government is fat, bloated and and often at odds with itself. The more we defund it, the better off we will all be.
