Hybrid w/turbine engine
approx 4 yrs ago i read an article about a constant speed gas turbine attached to a generator running an automobile. of special interest about this auto was that it was being developed by the man that founded compaq computer. he claimed their hybrid was getting 150 to a gallon of gas. he also said he had patented an air bearing that allowed the shaft of the turbine to ride on a cushion of air, friction free. also at this time he was storing electricity on two shafts constantly rotating ( verticle ) in front of the firewall, wound with a carbon fiber composition. at the time of the article he felt the system was refined enough to place in commercial vehicles in different parts of the country to test durablity and to further improve the system in a five yr test. ? has anybody else heard of this.
