WOT to park no no agreed. The cat starts working minutes after start up and is working for some time after shut down till it gets under 6-800f . Theas have started many fires from people driving at slower than ecomodder speeds , was a major problem when they first came out. Finding the happy spot or controlling the hot side temp is the problem the high temp TEG are too spendy and 12-1600f is way too hot .
If your cooling pump or fan used say 10% of power production then why not let it top up the battery recapturing more of the energy already invested? Cost /w is high at this stage of development, so by the eg in the beginning we are only able to use a fraction of whats needed. By charging 120% of running time the % just got bigger.
a way to extend cat heat/power production @900f add 1 drop fule. the cat will catalyze the pure hydrocodone yealding heat allowing (just a guess) 10-15mun extension of charge time per drop.alowing for 2-500% charge timeV drive time.
