Hi guys,

I want to thank everyone that took the time to read my post today. I'm Sean and I'm working on a concept to double the range of an electric car using renewable technology. I want to get some input from some EV hobbies that have work on building/converting their own EV to get an understanding on how the community view the technology.

Below is a link to a survey I built to collect your feedback:

Also I would love to chat with some of you guys via skype if you are available.

My goal is to build the first 1000 miles per charge EV, and this is just my first step towards that goal, Your support would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards

P.S. Please feel free to comment and I will answer any question to the best of my ability.

I'm not trying to sell anyone a false bag of goods, I know the limitation of these technologies. I only want to know what's a good ROI to aim for with these technology for EV practitioner to see it as a good investment. Once I know that, I will know whats worth your time and money.

I would like a rental car that has a 700 mile range at 70 mph, and can be recharged in 10-12 hours. Out West and in the Midwest part of the country, it isn't crazy to drive that in a day.

I don't care if it is a pickup truck with a bed full of batteries either. Now, I haven't done the math on how many kWh of batteries I would need for the increased weight of more batteries yet. Or the cost of those extra batteries.

This is why the solar race in Australia is important to keep pushing new technology and design.

We need Mr. Fusion.
