My new BOV is a civic hybrid... I know. If you have finished laughing can we continue? I traded in my Tahoe for a Civic. Now I will note that I still have a Ram1500, so don't take away my man card yet. My thought is that although the civic is essentially a go-cart it goes a whopping 520 miles on less than 15 gallons of gas. I keep about 50 gallons in red cans so on this alone I could cross the US. Or travel to and from the town closest to my BOL 100 times. AND, from what I understand, hybrids are essentially high efficiency generators with high voltage batteries to make the power loss minimal. That's what I am posting about...any one have any technical knowledge to offer about considerations I should make in taking power from my hybrid engine? I understand the how is a simple inverter run off the battery posts. Where should I look for specs on how much power the car needs vs how much it is safe to take off?
