I agree Capri. I think a lot of these TEG places could substantially lower prices if they got some real volume to sell. An OEM looking to do this may be able to build a TEG exhaust for 2-3x the cost of an alternator. This seems like a lot, but to gain 5-10% in fuel economy is a huge feat. On small cars, we know this can be done.
