yeah honestly!it would be fun to see what it will do with my jeep wrangler hahaha.... i am dying on gas... i need to get a new car or something like moped or build an electric commuter car but i cant sell my jeep cause i love going wheeling... maybe one day i can do a diesel swap and run biodiesel ..
