So, instead of regenerating electricity when breaking, it builds up hydraulic pressure? That is a good idea...

Doesn't a Prius only get like 50 MPG?

a real truck gets 8 miles to the gallon pulling a house or just driving and who wants to drive a car

My pops just bought a Prius and the best is 66mpg. Obviously there are so many factors that come into that figure, but the average is about 54mpg. They're uglier than hell though, and are a really rough ride.

What exactly does your truck do now?


60 mpg would be cool, but usally to get a little youve got to give a little and power Im not giving up.

I'd have to agree with swamp boy on this one, my truck gets 10 -12mpg towing something or just headin to work, No better no worse. It would be pretty flippin sweeeet to get that kind of mileage though.
