I was talking about EXACTLY this same thing yesterday!

The discussion started, talking about a PVC tube cannister for vacuum for an electric vehicle, and then moved on to talking about doing this for an ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicle for better braking on extended Engine-Off-Coasting.

Good Job! (I second the "post some pictures"!)
