    I say just put turbos on everything, if you want to reuse exhaust gas and heat. :o

    My car already reuses it's exhaust. It's called a turbocharger. Been around for awhile.

    Oh, you mean like running hot gas to a turbine that's coupled to a generator?

    If they make something like that, it's only a matter of time before they make something powered by farts.

    Make a business for superchargers. I bet they'd beleive it's 'free energy,' and ignore the parasitic drag. :mamoru:

    i feel like its unfair for big companies to get so much fucking government cushioning financially. Feds shouldn't be giving GM any more money until they at least show some kind of positive upturn. Sometimes, I wonder if everyone who's in charge are on the same page with regard to the financial well being of this nation. :hs:
