I was reading where the new Ford Tonka truck will be equipped with regenerative braking. A hydraulic pump will be installed on the driveshaft that will pump fluid into a high pressure nitrogen filled tank during braking and that will allow you to store energy during braking to be used on take-off. It is said to result in 25-30% improvement in fuel mileage. Now that's pretty slick!
