I am just wondering if any one tried this idea ......installing few small
jet shape wind trubine generator on top of roof.... so when the car is
driven over 10-15 MPH it generates electricity through those wind turbines
for battery charging, certainly it will increase the range. With an average
car speed like 30-40 MPH ..... and few turbine like this on top of the car
roof will generate easily  over 100 Amps.

Any comments ?????????????

Personally, I prefer the idea of installing a wind turbine on a rowboat, with
the output
driving an electric fan, so as to permit the occupant to row faster without
breaking into
a sweat.

Yep it is the something for nothing idea, it just does not happen, this is
why regeneration from braking is good it is recovering energy from the
momentum of the vehicle.
Any drag has to be paid for, a turbine would be a drag.

Yea but that drag will not puncture the pocket....lol... loosing few miles
speed vs  increase of range?

I assume it's just a troll which  means you're just a nuisance idiot rather than
