CV Springs

  1. Sep 24, 2013 #1
    I have a small petrol generator.
    How Large/Long/Heavy would a CV spring need to be, to run it for four hours.
    Ideally the spring being narrow enough to be hidden in a house cavity wall (7or8")

    More generally, how effective are CV springs as energy stores
