elann: You're trying to defend a stupid idea by redefining it as a somewhat more clever idea. What you're suggesting is entirely different from what the OP suggested.

:-) From the outset, OP acknowledged substantial lack of scientific/technical sophistication. I was merely recognizing that circumstance can encumber one's ability to communicate ideas and questions regarding physical science issues.

could it be possible to "get the vehicle moving" on battery power and have an on-board wind turbine that is efficient enough to produce MORE power than is consumed to move the vehicle?
What is YOUR answer?

The proposition stated would violate the second law of thermodynamics (assuming background wind speed of zero).
