Maybe because....there isn't any demand for such a thing? An interesting curiosity to be sure but I've got to tell you Toe, 1.3+ million miles in cages alone and I've never run out of fuel or had a motor fail. Ever. Come to think of it, 250k on motorcycles, and never run out of fuel or had a motor go on one of those either, street or track.

I had a tranny blow once? First cage ever, didn't check manual tranny fluid after I bought it, slow leak, blew main bearing one evening. But from Brownsville to Prudhoe Bay spanning parts of 6 decades now, no need for pedals because of lack of fuel or blown engines. Might you be supposing a solution for a problem that doesn't exist?

Range anxiety in gassers doesn't exist with even half assed trip planning across North America. Including to Prudhoe Bay Alaska or Goose Bay Labrador. Could come in handy in Mongolia or Siberia perhaps?

whales are a perfect example as to why evolution is wrong. Nothing can evolve into something that enormous. There is no explanation for it getting that big. end of discussion
