That's good, as spending $1500 to go from 60 to 70MPG would take 157k miles to break even at $4 a gallon.

Maybe you could make the alternator only output power when decelerating in gear or other times that it wouldn't have much of an impact. Just seems a little silly to spend so much for an automatic setup that may still need to be plugged in.
