Mr. Fusion (8 Wheeler)

A famous scene in “Back to the Future” is when Doc returns from the future and refuels his “Mr. Fusion” generator mounted on his DeLorean:

PFRC is a little too big for a DeLorean but not for a U.S. Army Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT).

There is a version of the HEMTT that uses Oskhosh’s ProPulse diesel-electric hybrid system with ultra capacitors for energy storage. Electric motors drive the wheels.

A PFRC mounted on an HEMTT would provide electric power directly to the ProPulse system. The diesel might only by used to start up the fusion reactor. In effect we would have a 8 wheeler Mr. Fusion!
