    Not a five minute span, but not too shabby (IMHO). Sorry about the image quality (cell phone).

    What Neicy says. It's certainly good to recapture energy that in a conventional car would be lost otherwise. But in my striving for maximum fuel economy I've never tried to see how many I can get. I pride myself on how few I get.

    sometimes I get a few on purpose by coasting off the highway to a stopping point. I have to recharge the battery getting ready for the 39 mph 0 rpm driving!

    But on the whole you dont want a lot of them as normal course.
