Xcel's Ford Ranger a Hybrid????
Wayne has a 2003 Ranger (4 cylinder) that acheives great mpg. I think he turns the engine off alot (FAS) then starts it again using the 12 volt battery & starter. Therefore, he is discharging the battery and later while driving, is charging the battery. Maybe in a sense, he's driving a gas - electric hybrid. With electricity providing no direct assist to the drivetrain, maybe this could be termed an indirect hybrid?
