Out of curosity, does this system act the same as a transformer creating energy through the inductance of poles and the rotating disk(metal)? How do they do this? Do you know?
Remember the law of conservation of energy: Energy cannot be created nor destroyed... it only changes forms. This is the reason perpetual motion is impossible.
The energy captured by regeneration through braking (what hybrids do) is nothing more than harnessing the kinetic energy (energy of motion) and changing it into potential (stored)... problem is... where did the energy come from to get the car moving (kinetic energy) which is being harnessed by regenerative braking? The answer is energy was USED to get the car going.
So no, that is not magic free energy... it is only recapturing energy that was already expended... rather than letting it go to waste. There is a big difference. I might mention the Chevy Volt has regenerative braking also.

Well, the debate was disappointing IMO but I do believe Ryan came of as more of a professional where Biden seemed arrogant and had no problem lying through his teeth and laughing about it.
I will now:
I advocate buying a junker for 5k or so. That is more than I paid for my truck 10 years ago. Minimum liability insurance, uninsured motorist coverage for illegal aliens about 5+ a month. Better than spending 35k on a gas saver. Use the 30k over to pay for the gas, the insurance savings alone will buy bunches of gas. Interest on loan,.. more gas.
I would not advocate buying a new vehicle, much less an energy saver one. The dollars do not add up.
