Ok I see where some people thought it was perpetual motion... Apparently I worded it wrong... My apologies... Sometimes my brain works faster than my fingers can type.

Ok... Worded one of my posts wrong again... I'm planning on having an electric motor in the front of the truck to turn the belt which in turn would turn the pulleys for the high output alternators (which would charge the battery bank), power steering, ac and air pump. The electric motor in the rear would just turn the rear wheels providing propulsion...

So what are you powering the alternators with?

And yes, some things are impossible.

OK, so the battery pack powers a motor that turns the alternators that recharge the battery pack? No, that won't work and is a form of a perpetual motion machine. There are power losses in each of those steps (energy is lost as heat) and you will get less power back in the pack than what you took out in the first place. It's a net loser. You don't even have to build it, I can tell you that it is impossible to make this work.

Once again... One car battery on will power everything in the cab of the truck including the headlights and taillights. And the other will power the electric motor... There will be more than one high output alternator or if I can get the parts a generator.

There is more than one battery bank. When I can get the time I will make a more refined schematic for y'all to see

How do you recharge the batteries if you don't plug it in?

You need to make the time for that. Or at least a clear, concise paragraph. Failing that, I'm just going to start repeating after Neil.

It is impossible to make it work... Have you tried to build one? If so then where are the prototypes?... If you haven't tried to build what I am talking about then zip it! If you have tried then why don't we bounce ideas off of one another... By the way google ebm. It's a generator that can power itself as well as providing 4 mw of power. The commercial version puts out even more. The tech was developed back in 2000 in Hungary.
