Now what are the options regarding a hybrid vehicle? Is it strictly electric/gasoline...
Or something like Diesel/JP5?
Now there's an idea! When I was in the military, we had a helo mechanic convert his diesel VW Rabbit from diesel to JP5. He got a few gallons every day simply from the daily fuel tests we had to do on the planes.
How bout a turbo? No, not like what's on the engine now. Like the T-58 engine that runs many of our turbo prop planes today. We would still have a TC, it would just convert high flowing air instead of fluid.
