I have been looking for a Hybrid Electric kit for about any can but without luck. However the componets a rather simple and I think that a guy with a few bucks and some knowledge of mechanics might be able to create his own hybrid system. The difficulty would be in cost and vehicle space and gvwr. Batteries are heavy but cheep; maybe $1000-$2000 for one car. Ultacapacitors might do a fine job but for a high price of $10,000 up for one car. The generator-motor could possibly be "home made" if you have access to a foundry, or could make molten iron, copper and steel, and a lathe but extreem pricision would be needed! Also you would need to find a good way to connect it to the vehicle drive line. A rear wheel might be easier because the generator-motor could be placed on the drive shaft and could be opperated with the gasoline motor turned off and the manual transmission in neutral. Some heavy-duty electical systems and you're set.

I have a Saab 95 wagon, and recently introduced a electrolisis unit into the air intake, providing more oxygen, and hydrogen from water. I have a 30% increase in milage, and now get arrounf 1100km/tank of gas. The kit cost about 250 to make, and it was simple to install myself. Absolutely a surprise.
