Dear Tom Miles and all

One element of biomass producer gas seldom mentioned here Is the convenience and easy feeding of wood pellets.  

While not as cheap as wood chips, they are widely available in the US at a cost of < 1/3 the cost of gasoline.  They involve much less labor and a charge burns three times as long as the same volume of wood pellets.

> "A recent issue of the Sydney 'Daily Telegraph' reports particulars of a fast trip between Melbourne and Sydney, when a Pontiac car carrying two passengers and fitted with a "Wishart" Producer Gas Unit, covered the 569 miles in record time, and reached a maximum speed of 72 miles per hour, with a total fuel cost of 6/9 for each passenger for the complete trip.
> The commercial value of Producer Gas is clearly indicated by the experience of W. L. Sides & Son Ltd., well known Artesian Well Boring Contractors.
> This concern has a 30 cwt. truck, usually loaded with two tons and drawing a 5-ton trailer load on a daily average of 100 miles. Mr. Sides states that the unit is easily understood and operated by the average truck driver, and only requires five minutes each morning to clean out and recharge with fuel and water. The unit has already covered over 25,000 miles, with an enormous saving in running costs.
> Mr. Andrew Wishart has recently been in Adelaide for a number of weeks, supervising a numberof installations for the South Australian and West Australian (also Broken Hill) Manufacturing Distributors for 'Wishart' Producer Gas Units (Horwood Bagshaw Ltd.). and after leaving for Melbourne last Friday at 3 p.m., he completed the trip to Melbourne at a fuel cost of 10/1.
> The 'Wishart' Unit requires no fire clay furnace lining, is built up in a one piece unit, galvanised throughout both inside and outside to completely eliminate corrosion from gas or water, and is maintaining a leadership established throughout the eastern States over the past five years.
> Recent Adelaide deliveries include units to Harris Scarfe Limited, Clarkson Limited, and several units for the Engineering and Water Supply Department of the South Australian Government. Clients are satisfied that it pays to purchase a unit with a well-proven and established reputation for simplicity. economy, accessibility, and long life, and Horwood Bagshaw Limited, of 78 Currie Street Adelaide, will be glad to furnish full details of 'Wishart' Producer Units, or to arrange a test with their Demonstrator Truck, for any interested reader."
