    You can buy an adapter for your vehicles alternator which will allow you to operate 110 volt tools and other household items. As far as how much electricity.....I don't know.

    I think its 12.8 volt... Your battery is normally 12 volt so at least 12.8 to 13.8

    depends on the car and the accessories available inside the car... i think it would be between 13.2 and 14.5 volts. it also depends on the rpm ... the more the rpm the more it produces.

    Alternators installed in cars produce Electricity known as Direct current (DC) at 13.2-14.9 volts. The alternators are rated by the amperage they can produce. The more amperage the more "stuff" you can have running in your car. The manufacture determines the size by what is installed in the car. If you buy a car with lots of extra electrical gadgets the amp rating on your battery and alternator will normally be larger.

    Your definition of electricity is unknown by us, so it is hard to answer. What are your concerns about?
