A generator has been acquired. It is capable of 10,000 watts at either 120 or 240volts. It is belt driven which should give me much more flexibility in mounting options. Is also fits well with the modular theme; it could be removed and replaced easily with a different unit as long as the pulley is compatible.
Plugging some quick numbers into the incredibly handy EV Calculator I see that the a 10kw output should be capable of sustaining a cruising speed of 65mph on perfectly level ground. In this scenario the batteries will be used only for additional load (incline, headwind, increased speed), and they will receive the surplus output when load decreases (downhill slopes, tailwind, decreased speed).
If I then extrapolate this with data available on diesel generator fuel consumption, which appears to be 210-240 grams fuel per kWh. Therefore 1 hour at 10kw will consume 2400 grams = 5.3lbs of diesel fuel. Diesel weighs about 7.2lbs per gallon, so this equates to .75 gallons of fuel to achieve 65 miles.
