Terms of Service

Please note that this is not a legal document. This is a human-readable page detailing what to expect on this website.

By using this site you agree to abide by these terms of service. We reserve the right to exclude individuals who disregard them.

Forum rules: Please respect other members! Insulting another person or being disrespectful on this site for any reason will not be tolerated.

  • Do not post links to porn, warez or other degrading or controversial images or links here. Spam will not be tolerated.
  • This is a woodgas forum and not a forum to discuss politics or debate in heated arguments.
  • This is an international forum and I expect everyone to be proud of where they are from, but not to say anything disrespectful about a fellow member's country, accent, race, spelling, or intelligence.
  • If you want to talk about the latest news, that's fine, but all topics that get into debate territory will be removed.
  • Please try and keep this place a friendly environment. If you really feel the need to vent, rant, complain, or insult someone, do it elsewhere.


    Drive On Wood (this site) provides three service levels: anonymous, free, and premium.

    Anonymous users may read and share anything they have access to on the site. Comments are not enabled for anonymous users. They do not have permission to reprint original work from the site without permission. Hotlinking to pictures is unethical and discouraged. Anonymous users may sign up for accounts and become free users. They may also order from the store, at which time they become premium members.

    Free users have signed up for a free account. They receive all services available to anonymous users, along with the ability to post on the forums, maintain a profile page, and contact or be contacted by other members. Any content uploaded to the public area of the site is released into the public domain and may be copied or altered freely. If you wish to retain control of words or pictures, do NOT post them publicly.

    Premium users have purchased a membership from the site. They receive all services available to free users, along with access to proprietary information held by Wayne Keith regarding the construction and operation of his equipment. This access is not free, nor is the information available for public use. Premium members are strongly discouraged from freely giving out this information to non-paying users. Doing so amounts to piracy, a practice which is illegal but very hard to stop. We must act on good faith and ask our members to respect this. If you give away our premium content, it's bad for business and ultimately the site will go offline. Remember, we are trying to cover our costs and keep this site open and operating.

    The following information is deemed proprietary:

  • Articles and other text explaining the construction and operation of the gasifier.
  • Videos showing the same
  • Photos showing the same
  • Answers to questions or other text revealing the structure and operating principles of the unit
  • Videos revealing the same
  • Photos revealing the same


    Specifically, we ask that members constructing Keith style gasifiers to be "vague" on the details, and to not post detailed photos or videos of the internal components in public forum posts.

    Premium service also includes access to special forum areas intended for discussion of the Keith gasifier and its construction. Proprietary information may be shared here, because only premium members have access. Content uploaded to the premium area is treated as proprietary to the site, and will not be made publicly available except in special cases ("teasers") in which very little proprietary information is given away.

    Names policy: We reserve the right to display your first and last name. Real names are required for membership on this site. If necessary we will edit the fields "first name" and "last name" on your profile to display such. If you wish to remain anonymous then please do not set up an account, simply view the forums and do not post. We may suspend accounts without full names until names are provided.

    Refund policy: As of this writing there are three products for sale on this website. Refund policies on each follow.

    Wayne's book is fully refundable for 30 days, after that only special cases will be refunded. Refund will result in cancellation of the included premium membership.

    1 year of membership is fully refundable for 10 days. After that the refund will be prorated by month. Contact us for details.

    Lifetime membership is fully refundable for 10 days. After that the refund will be prorated by month. After two years no refund will be made. Contact us for details.
