I do use both engines to climb steep hills and for bursts of speed from a dead stop, then I continue on my way on just the gas engine cause it's range is 5x greater than the batteries range.
Man thats almost exactly what I planned. You need to run a diff motor with high output alternator so your bursts from a stop are ran from the alternator, thats my plans. I have none of the parts yet to start puting it together though yet, focusing on going from a 33cc 2 smoker to a nice 49 cc 4 stroke honda clone so I can run a rev meter and EFI

Then I will focus on charging.
