Default Motoring after the Apocalypse 2; other Alternate Fuels

While ethanol and methanol are the default fuels in T2k, they actually aren't the best fuels available. Wood Gas, mentioned over at RPG.net, is a widely used alternate fuel.

There's plenty of wood, and it's easily harvested. Here's a schematic of the system;



The other fuel, especially suitable for military vehicles, is biodiesel. Often this uses ethanol as part of the process, but you can get a fuel almost as good as petroleum diesel without the hassle of invading Rumania.
