you're going to spend so much on that cell that you will probably end up LOSING money on it.
What cell might that be? The battery is a $200 42 volt lead acid. The starter generator is very large and starts the engine instantly when you remove your foot from the brake. A DC/AC invertor is provided for 120volt AC power 20 amp service. Very handy for compressors and saws when away from commercial power. All that was $1000 extra. With no degradation to towing power or off-road ability. And GM still builds the best PU trucks available.

My GMC Sierra Hybrid has not had a problem in 15 months. I don't get the mileage I had hoped for. It is about 1 MPG higher than my 1999 Suburban around town driving. Maybe 2 MPG better on the highway. Not great for a lighter, tinnier plastic truck.

A Forbes.com article on the least efficient hybrids and the dreaded "hybrid premium" are the subject of today's Alternate Route entry, Boon or Bane?

Well the new two mode Chevy PU are supposed to be hitting the lots any day now. Has anybody actually seen any of the new trucks yet?
