I don't get it, what is the wood for? That isn't a steam powered van. It starts up and runs on a gasoline or diesel engine. That isn't a methanol still on the back door, it is a burner of some sort. Is it just wood for heating? Is that the point of the leaf blower shooting smoke out the front? Seems to me that it would have been much easier and cheaper to just fix the heater. Is the wood stove for preheating a biodiesel tank or preheating the diesel motor?


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

carbon monoxide is a flammable gas. Take a smothering fire add water vapor, and you get carbon monoxide!
