Description: Idea came to me the other day. If my car could drive along the highway at 100kph, at 1,000rpm, I could save 5 to 10 grand per year on fuel. Imagine that, driving at 100kph, for as long as it takes for your car to idle through a tank of fuel. Amazing. However, it would require a massive torque to weight ratio to move it from a stop.
