lol yeah but the company i got the price from (Hi-Z Technology, Inc.) is working with Clarkson University and NYSERDA to develop a drop in model for the GMC Sierra pickup truck. If the major auto manufacturers really wanted to do this they could easily produce the modules for dirt cheap (kinda like lithium batteries now, no mass production so they're expensive). They're only expensive on the small scale which is where it is right now. So yeah lol in a way i did answer my own question but then again it just raises more questions about why if the automotive industry knew about this, and nissan motors made a working prototype in the early 90's, why they haven't pursued it further. I could point my finger to the oil companies and it may have been them keeping ICE from getting more efficient but it probably lies in the lazy hands of the Managing bodies of the corporations. I apologize for digressing this thread.
