Car acting as backup generator

CARs can make a good solution as a residential power backup generator. Provide it as a feature on CARs and TRUCKS so that people don't have to buy another backup generaor that is noisy..Pollutant...Heavy...Difficult to operate.

Which means I have to carry around the weight of the generator all the time, I loose my generator every time I have to drive somewhere and I have to run my 30,000 vehicle to run a generator? Sounds like some where and tear I would rather relegate to 1500 generators which are easily replaceable .

You can already do this, just buy a high wattage 12V DC/AC power converter and connect it to the battery terminals with the engine running, or to the interior power outlets.
