I'll check the wight of the battery after the weekend. It took me a while to see the beauty of normally wasted energy of a car when slowing down is able to be captured by the energy recovery system and stored in the battery. This design of this University of Tennessee's Camaro is there is no plug-in. You will have continue to go to the gas station.

I would miss the growl of a V8, but if it means not having to buy $4.00 + gallon gasoline. I would consider it.
