It contains too much chalk or whatever. If burnt in a stove, it leaves too much ashes.

Not marketable, but cool”. Just because it’s a beautiful piece of soviet ingenuity and engineering do you write it off as “wasteful” and “inefficient”. Not everything appears at the right time, you know.

Then again, driving on wood is far from a dead technology. A man in the US south named Wayne Kieth has been perfecting gassification for use in IC engines for a number of years.

This technology is quite common and still used across the world from Norway to the United States. Research it online to see actual information. They use this technology for equipment also.

Reminds me of sleeping on the ol’ stove while at the farm.

With wood pellets the fuel could be stored outside the cab and conveyed to the boiler at need, thus reducing the front-end weight somewhat.

Wood pellets could be made from ground up leaves and branches that cities already need to handle as waste anyway. Even paper and cardboard could be pelleted for use too.
