DIY Hybrid featured on INSTRUCTABLES

by Ben N on December 20, 2010

I just put the information on my do-it-yourself hybrid on

The project was almost instantly featured – it shows up on the homepage and is also otherwise highlighted on the site.

I also entered it into the contest they have going on sponsored by Craftsman Tools. The grand prize is $5000 worth of tool gift certificates! The contest is open to public voting on your favorite project, but ONLY for the next couple days! If you like my hybrid project, please vote for it in the contest.

Good luck with the contest! Either way you have something great. I have followed the project for awhile now, and I was excited to see that you actually took the time to add the generator. Sometimes it’s good to see real application rather than theory. I check often to see updates, and to find out what the numbers will be. I hope to find out the benefits of the generator and to see what you do to quieten it down. Congrats, and keep up with the great content. You have inspired me to build my own someday soon!

GREAT JOB Ben!! And a BIG Congrats on winning!

Well, guess ive gotta save my pennies to get the video as Ive been knocking this idea of building an electric car for the wifey to use long enough.

Im pretty mechanically inclined but electricity is my Achilles heel and scares me to death. But, after seeing what you’ve done I think I might be able to pull it off.

I’m disabled so it may take awhile but Ill get her done by cracky!

Thanks for giving me the boost I needed to get started!


BOL, Randy
