Is there generator I can hook up to the drive belt of 2000 Ford V8 like an alternator to get 4000 watts of 120/240 power?

Wouldn't it be nice to always have your generator with you? Never have to change the oil, make sure the gas is still good?

How about inverters to run tools? You guys ever use them?

My brother wants to get rid of his portable generator and replace it with either an inverter or some type of generator that runs off the engine. But he wants it 240 volt 20 amp incase he needs to run his well in a power outage. Ever heard of it??

How many of you guys use an inverter for tools?
