Of course this will be the average amount of battery amperes times battery

voltages.

Or if you have a AC input volt-amp meter and calculated the volts x amps =

watts for a constant current charger and average out the voltage curve or

better yet, use a AC watt meter to give you how many kilowatt hr it takes to

charge the batteries for a given number of miles.

Or just take the average battery amperes times the average voltages for a

ball park estimate for the wattages.

Now lets say you use about 10k watts to go 50 miles, then if you paying 11.5

cents per kilowatt, then the 50 miles will cost you about $0.115 x 10 =

$1.15

If gasoline is $3.45 a gallon, then $3.45/$1.15 = 3

So you can go 3 times the distance with the electric with $3.45 or would be

equivalent to 3 x 50 miles = 150 miles per gallon equiavlent or MPGE

The formula now becomes:

MPGE = ((cost of gal of gas)/(kw use x cost per kw))x miles travel
