    Electric vehicles are built much lighter that gas vehicles. It would be cheaper by far to buy an electric car or van. Just remember the range on these cars and vans are limited between charges.

    the cost would be astronomical because of the amount of weight involved in building the gas powered vehicles,the weight a lot more than the eclectic ones do,so doing this wouldn't be a likely project,even if it could be done the distance you would be able to travel would be much less than that of a normal electric vehicle,probably in the 50 thousand dollar range to do this,if it could be done for that amount,good luck.
