    I don't know if you've covered this before, but did you consider having a fan spun by air movement to put some charge back into the batteries, like wind generators on yachts? I know it wouldn't do a lot, but would it extend the range enough to be worthwhile? Just an overnight thought...

    The drag created by the generator/s would use more energy than recovered,

    Some people have also suggested wheel dynamos , Even in a perfect world of superconductors and zero friction it does not work.
    There are lots of scams about asking for investors in such devices, but with such presentations its easy to get sucked in.

    Different but Even Toyota are using a ploy to promote their Hybrids as a "Self Charging Electric Car" they have been made to stop such false advertising.

    DOES NOT WORK, CAN NEVER WORK .

    Entire industries are built on people who fall for this kind of stuff.

    When I was working for a really major exploration company, one of our area managers seriously entertained using a scheme where you hung a sample of what you were looking for on a string over a map of the area, and a special apparatus measured its preferred direction of movement (or something like that - I can't remember the details, but it was obviously a scam). He only dropped the idea when I told him that if he didn't, I'd write a detailed memo to the CEO showing that he was an idiot. I was sufficiently senior that he realised it would have been read and acted on.

    But I don't think he was convinced it wouldn't work!
