Insurance company says they'll insure the truck as any other car would be!
The final price of the trucks conversion required a line of credit on the
house mortgage, went with $9000 worth of lithium batteries. Way better than
the lead acid ones at a third of the weight, and last alot longer, four
years so far (as of Apr 2013)

Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were
Team Swinburne Electric 2010, AKA tse_10, was the first year a group of
Swinburne engineering students endevoured to develop and build an Electric
Vehicle for the Formula SAE competition. The team hit trouble when they
blew up their motor controller, just over a week before the competition.
The team then borrowed another motor controller which also ended up
blowing. The team then borrowed ANOTHER motor controller, to which they had
some success, until the night before the competition, when it also blew up.
In total the team blew up 3x $4,000 controllers, 6 times (after repairs).
It is thought that the motor is faulty and is causing the issues.

This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

150,000 uF Capacitor Bank for Electric Car
Here is a 150,000 uF Capacitor Bank that I am building for my EV. This
should help take out the high amp spikes from the batteries and increase
the performance a little bit and should make the batteries last a little
longer. Will have a follow up video of the install and testing.
