House power demands obviously fluctuate but during peak demand the battery is likely to run down and require the engine. My colleague said he went a week on a Prius and used 5 gallons of gas to power his house so the car probably ran an average of an hour a day. Compared with the noise made by most home generators, the car noise would be quite modest (and the car is already paid for and maintained). People here pay $100 a year for their "portable" generator to be transported to a power equipment dealer for an annual tune-up (which probably costs an additional $100+). They still cannot be depended upon when the power fails and make a great deal of noise.

This kind of service is already available in France. It is called Autolib' and it is deployed in Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux.
There is also the same service with bikes.
