And therein lies the rub. To start with, a big part of the idea here was to re-use as much of the original vehicles as possible, neither of which came with Honda generators. At the same time, while a small generator might produce enough current for charging over time, it will not put out enough for sustained highway travel, especially not if any substantial climbing is involved. That doesn't mean that a larger gen-set might not work, but those aren't cheap.
