    Don't forget to figure in mpg loss from putting the load of charging the extra battery on the engine.
    Remember how a good connection to a dead battery pulls the other vehicle's engine's rpms down?
    That energy has to come from somewhere.

    I was thinking of something connected to or in the back wheel, if there is such a thing. That's what I meant by drag charging. Maybe a belt driven alternator with a clutch like on an ac unit.
