Using the concept of push-back toy car in a real car to save fuel
I have owned a eclectic car for some years now. There have been many modification's to extend its range. You have struck on one that I have give much thought to. The highest load on the battery pack is getting the weight moving from a dead stop. So a spring assist just to get the weight moving would have a large impact on over all range. As Lejan stated using the battery to wind the spring would only be a tradeoff therefore your not gaining anything. But what if the spring was wound under breaking or deceleration as Volvo did.. My expanded view of this idea also uses a flywheel driven by a spring under braking and the deceleration. But how to Apply it to my Car?
