Merci! Darin.
Hi Darin - Yes, that is exactly like it works.
Though I like to get a bit of regen as it helps with getting away once you get going again without being punished with a mild regen once at speed.

All in all the Insight can put the extra power to good use, the fuller the battery the nicer it is to drive. I am seriously considering building my own portable PHEV booster pack, I will start a thread when I got things sorted out.
