It does cost 100k, so it won't ever pay for itself in effeciency, but this is a "dream world" thread.
Don't say "ever", just not as quickly as one would expect. but when fuel gets to be $10 Gal, it would pay for itself much quicker.
Look at it this way, you could charge it for 8 hours on one tank of fuel in a generator, and drive 250 miles. So it could be like 125 miles per gallon.... All right, back in dream world....
