So Much For That

This "inventor" in San Francisco thinks he's come up with "this great, legendary thing".  By attaching a Capstone micro-gas turbine he's extended the range of a Nissan Leaf.  


A microturbine gulps fuel like nobody's business.  The drag from the trailer and turbine must be enormous.  Yea, he might extend the range of the car, but what did it cost?  And not just the cost of the gas turbine, but the fuel cost must be enormous.

Completely defeats the purpose of the car.
