Engine Conversion & Automation

The missing piece of the puzzle has now been invented and shared

Electronic Carburetor

Electronic Carburetor

Wood gas burns at a 1:1 air fuel ratio, much different than petro fuels. So its always been a problem to convert engines over to wood gas and have smooth automated operation for AC currents that require steady engine rpm.

Now you can use simple electronics and an O2 sensor to automate your air fuel ratio. It’s called an Electronic Carburetor. We show you how in the book. Plus you are going to learn the right way to dual fuel an engine, in this case a propane/natural gas electric generator. Switch between wood gas and petro fuels with ease.

Breakthrough Technology

In the book you get:

  • 118 pages of step-by-step instructions
  • 200+ photos
  • Large print
  • Parts sketches
  • Materials and suppliers
  • Tool list
  • Air fuel ratio
  • Computer code
  • Tips, tricks and wisdom that will help you avoid mistakes

Learn to convert engines to multi-fuel use, then automate the air-fuel mixture for wood gas

Revolutionary design:

  • Controls biogas air fuel ratio electronically
  • Hands free automation
  • Uses off the shelf parts like Arduino and an O2 sensor
  • Simple 12 volt electronics
  • Weather resistant design
  • Scalable for various applications
  • Simple copy and paste code
  • Extend your engine’s life

Customer & Community Feedback

Wood Gasifier + Converted Engine Based on the Books

Wood gasifier and engine system

Go off grid with confidence. Live in peace.


I would like to thank you so much for the plans. My generator started immediately the very first time! I couldn’t believe it! I turned the gas line off listened for the engine to start dying then I introduced wood gas and tweaked the air and away it went. That was three days ago and you still can’t wipe the smile of my face. Yesterday I ran it again this time it started on the third pull off of Woodgas from a cold start!

This is a huge game player in our off grid life. We’re developing our farm. Lots of building to go. Including our main house, barn, chicken coupe on and on. Know as I mill material I can feed the gasifier to power my power tools, charge batteries, and run the farm during construction off of the scraps produced everyday.

I hope sometime I have the pleasure to personally shake your hand and thank you. You make it so easy to get into wood gas, saving me hours of frustration.

Living with energy independence, in the Yukon, your friend,

I built your gasifier after I purchased your book & videos. It turned out pretty good, and works great. I built it mostly just with the tools I already had…

Gaelans BookThis is an amazingly valuable book. Ben has boiled down his many years of R&D into a very well written book that makes it clear how anyone can make a wood gasifier. Thank you Ben!…

I have to say it is an honor and a privilege to able to review Ben’s plans. This is a straightforward approach with zero guess work to building a high quality gasifier from what I can see. Not only that but the advanced features and build techniques are the stuff we manufacturers are using today…

You guys are awesome. Great material. Can’t say enough about your products. Its well put together and easy to follow.
Can’t beat the value either. I would equal your product to a course put out by my local college.
Customer service was great too. Answered all of my questions and always responded quickly.
Its been a pleasant experience in doing business with you.

I did a lot of research on woodgas but was discouraged about building a gasifier until I read the Wood Gasifier’s Builder’s Bible and watched the companion video. (I was so happy I bought the Carburator Workshop book and video also!) The excellent visual descriptions gave me the confidence to pursue building a system for electricity generation. The books and videos together gave me the understanding about how a gasifier system is designed, which I was missing in the technical journals that I had been reading from the Internet. I look forward to reading more from Ben Peterson on the subject – performance enhancements, CHP add-ons, feedstock preparation (a screwchipper build perhaps?)… Thanks!

I am on my third read through of the new Wood Gasifier Builder’s Bible… The first thing that sticks out is the sheer volume of pictures. As many as any several books combined. And typeface that is large and so easy to read you could enjoy the book by candle light. Why is that important? Because if you build with “free” garbage can plans and kitchen strainers you are going to foul up your generator and be right back in the dark! Ben has walked the path and he sees your way forward better than you do. He’s looking out for you.

I am now buying extra copies to gift to all of my true off-grid and solar friends to fill promises I made years ago. That day has finally come thanks to Ben’s gift of knowledge and experience in this DIY book system. Thank you for this gift Ben. And to any one reading this…BUY THIS BOOK!
