This was an interesting article. Not sure if any of you have seen it. Would be a good idea, especially for driving in heavy, slow moving traffic as well as city driving.

I don't know about city driving in one of those new hybrids, I kind of like the way a tweaked out diesel with low back-pressure dual exhaust parts the traffic, kind of like Moses and the Red Sea.

I have NO problems with bike couriers or overly bold pedestrians, I just roll along at about 2,500 rpm's and watch the way clear for me.

Bigger is better..... Laughing out loud.

Best of luck.

I had not seen this work on the smaller pickups only the work on the semi tractors by Deere etc.
I guess it would help when you are pouring the coals to it so to speak in this set up.
I would think it would be good for a 5th wheel or horse trailer with living quarters. Just plug the trailer into the truck and you have 120 volt.
I wonder if you can use just the battery to produce the 120 V.
