Re: [EVDL] Converting from watt-hours/mi. to mi/gal & back

You can use your Civic example to get a conversion formula. The gasoline
burning Civic
goes 32 mpg. Civicwithacord goes 3.3 miles per kwhr. So it requires about
10 kwhr to do
the work of one gallon of gasoline. Comparison of gasolinje and electric
versions of other
vehicles will also show that a gallon of gasoline is equivalent to about 10
