    If you save 5% on fuel but only 3% on CO2 emissions, that would be 2% of non-combusted or partly-combusted hydrocarbons coming out of the tail pipe. That would be a horrible impact on air quality in cities! :cursing:

    So is this another J Petersen technology promotion?

    A friend has a Honda Insight with this technology. In the summer you roast at a long stop light because the a/c compressor in that car goes off with the engine.

    And dealers will rejoice if they can just kill off that pesky Tesla company for showing us that all of this cost and effort is unnecessary, wasteful, and expensive.
