Default Hybridize your coach, mini style

Saw a news article in Portland a few weeks ago and finally got around to looking it up...

They were removing the hydraulic fan on their buses and replacing with electric. Said in the article 10% better fuel economy and more power since the fan wasnt using 45 hp when running.

The company that makes these is here:
http://www.emp-corp.com/products/adv...d-thermal-kit/

Up Side...
Save 45 HP when running up the hill.
Loose the hydraulic fan motor, no leaks
Can reverse the fans to blow out the radiator!

Down side...
$15k
Fans require 24v @ 400 Amp (!!!)


Hummm....
