Hey Mike first I would use a drop wheel with attached mechanical generator and run it to a hard start capacitor transforming the input to my additional battery bank and out of the bank into a stepup transformer into the vehicles bank this should work much better it won't do 100% but it could do 60% give or take .what are your thoughts?

Sincerely a fan

Just read the article about putting a generator in a electric car and was sad you didn't say anything about a Chevrolet Volt

What about a set-up like the diesel-electric in a train. It's all a matter of gearing

How about a portable 20KV gas turbine generator that weighs less than 50Kg?  Runs on many types of fuel as well... LPG, Propane or good old jet fuel..!

Hi Bob,

These guys look like they went away in 2019. Possibly a great school project without financial backing. But the materiel and mechanical engineering that went into this is impressive.
