Welcome to the forum Cardona! One question, did Miller Gerdes recommend the ram turbine? lol. Sorry, it`s something we hear all the time on this forum. People just don`t realize that it costs more energy to push the car more to overcome the drag caused by the turbine and thus you actually lose energy. Laws of physics and all. Anyway, please read around the forum and enjoy.Try using a CVT transmission that maximizes the engine output while helping with the MPG. There is a Professor in California who has done the same with a Prius obtaining about a 100 MPG of the Car.
Secondly you could use a RAM air turbine that uses the wind as the car runs at high speeds to help keep the battery charge as well as a fifth wheel as a matter of dinamo just to keep the battery charged.
I would also get advice from the Ultra hypper Miller Gerdes, Wayne he is the champion to get a normal car into the 50 to 60 MPG's
