Perhaps telling why I wanted to know would help ;-)

Im playing with the configuration of my hybrid.

The Diesel's main role is to serve as a highway speed only motor.

I have some decisions to make with regard to the rest:

1 option would be to build a 10kw pack and "trust" that all of my non highway speed running would be covered on a single charge (Because the gearing of the diesel would render it of little help for speeds under say 50)

option 2 would be to have a seperate gen to recharge the pack while driving (based on the answers above, seems like a needed thing)

One option which I am quite in the dark on is to use a regen scenario on the main drive motor while its being "driven" by the diesel.

Need to do more research on option 3 :-)
