Oh, I see. You're harnessing a perpetual motion machine. So my question here is: If you can do that, why not power the car completely from the perpetual motion machine? It would be an interesting thing to see, especially since nobody credible has ever built a perpetual motion machine. Despite many hundreds of years (at least!) of trying.
