# Yes... do you still have the recipe for the wood smoke, that worked so 
well for you several years ago? ;-)

> Anyone driving on wood gas during winter?

# It is very interesting that when gasoline prices in  US are about $US 3.87 
per US Gal, this equates to about $1.00 per litre. Gasoline here in Nova 
Scotia is about $1.25 per litre. There seems to be relatively little 
interest inwood gas for vehicles here, even though the cost of gasoline is 
about 25% greater than in the US.

> Presently meeting 100% of heat with wood gasification.

# Very interesting!! I wonder if there is anyone else using wood gas for 
heating, in Canada or the US?

# Thanks very much! I do hope to be able to drop in and see you on my way 
back home after Christmas!

Best wishes,
