At least the OEM engineers have settled an argument on this forum: these electric superchargers, given a properly modest role, can work to increase efficiency in a properly engineered system. Case closed. It works, but it's just expensive!
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
