Very cheap and can give back almost all energy you lost at the stop sign to propel you back to your original speed. It could easily increase your mileage by 25% with no expensive batteries. A small 300$ device would do the trick, no 10,000$ battery. You’d get highway mileage all the time. No more lower city mileage! Well, a little differnce but not the one we know of today.

In 2005, the ultracapacitor market was between US $272 million and $400 million, depending on the source.
