Wood Gas Power???

Has anyone experimented with wood gas fuel? The biggest disadvantage I see is the bulk of the equipment.

I remember seeing a picture of old cars with wood gasifiers on the back- I think they were in Cuba. The equipment was huge then, but I would imagine that the size could be reduced with modern design and materials. I have never tried it myself, but I have heard that it takes a lot of wood to get the same amount of power as gas.

It looks like it would be a lot of fun to play with, though!
