engine/generator

  1. Heavier than my Mercury Station Wagon? Yikes!

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    I thought Lithium batteries were about 100 W-hr/lb; which would make the Volt battery about 160 lbs. So why is the curb weight 3780 lbs? That's 300 lbs more than my Mercury Sable Station Wagon! One suggestion is to minimize the gas engine. Driving at 70 MPH takes about 25 kW (33 HP)...
  2. why the engine/generator start when open the engine cover
