Maine-bound truck burns wood chips - Boston.com (http://www.boston.com/news/local/maine/articles/2009/05/23/maine_bound_truck_burns_wood_chips/?rss_id=Boston.com+--+Maine+news - broken link)

A pickup truck [named 'Termite'] was modified in Alabama to burn wood chips for fuel; it has been test driven from Alabama to California and back again, and is now headed to Maine.

An Auburn man bought the truck [a 1991 Dodge Dakota] from the guy who modified it. It runs on wood gasification.
It was modified by Wayne Keith, and has driven 15,000 miles. He's now working on a better prototype. Burning chips, the truck burns one pound of wood for each mile driven, or about 5,000 miles per cord.

Now I think we need more of these trucks.
