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.

what's this group view on the idea of 1000 miles per charge car and would they test it in there own build if the option was available.
Better efficiency is important, but for my mindset, 1000 miles is completely unnecessary.

Daily I drive less than 5 miles.
Once a week I make a 26 mile round trip.
A few times a year I make a 44 mile round trip.
I ride the bus to make the 90 mile trip to Boston, the bus uses the high-occupancy lane so I actually get there faster on the bus than if I fought the rush hour traffic.

On the other hand....with a 1000 mile range...I would only have to charge 2 to 3 times a year!!!
