    May earned a PhD degree in astrophysics from Imperial College London in 2007,[1][2] and was Chancellor of Liverpool John Moores University from 2008 to 2013.[10] He was a "science team collaborator" with NASA's New Horizons Pluto mission.[11][12] He is also a co-founder of the awareness campaign Asteroid Day.[13] Asteroid 52665 Brianmay was named after him.

    How much $ per gallon do you think that is, not calculating the generator cost

    no idea, but I'm pretty sure that guy has calculated peak efficiency

    If a 20lb propane tank is 120 kwh worth of energy (and the lightening's extended battery is 130 kwh) and if the propane tank costs 20 bucks to refill, is it a bad deal?

    What's the math on the efficiency loss using a generator that size? I have no idea, and yet I have to know... and you're the smartest guy I'm talking to at the moment.

    believe it or not, I'm in the middle of calculating the efficiency of a 7 cu ft chest freezer to be run off of a 200ah lithium iron phosphate deep cycle battery, using a 2000w inverter. Have a kill-a-watt on the freezer as we speak, motor startup surge is ~ 250w or so, then it settles down to ~50w to 75w while the compressor runs. Calculating the kwh both for the freezer empty and then again loaded up with 250 lbs of pet grade beef. This is all for our upcoming race trip in October through the first week of November. Will recharge the battery with a generator on the trip.

    as far as that guy running his Lightning with a generator . . . he should have bought a Cummins :cool:

    Depends on what you're feeding it to

    pet grade beef seems to have struck a chord

    here's the concept

    The concept is to put the top-loading frig under a shelf?? :)

    so, are those your dogs, or are you doing this for someone else?

    Is the race some type of dog chariot race with bikes?

    lol

    the freezer slides out easily. and yes, those are our dogs--we travel with seven, five are race dogs and two are hunting dogs. Each get a pound of raw meat/day for five weeks in addition to kibble.

    The racing is really big in the midwest, Canada, and Europe. My wife is at a race in Quebec this weekend while I'm working on the trailer. Do a search for "bikejoring" on YouTube and you'll see lots of video. Sprint distances from 2 to 4 miles typically. She also competes on kickbike/scooter, and plays with a three-wheeled rig with a four-dog team. Most of the folks who race also sled race in the winter on snow--we've got sleds but she has also done fat bike races on snow in the winter as well as skijor events.

    if you have Netflix you can see the whole segment on our friend Rich's dogs, this is kind of just the trailer, first minute or so
