What is: MPGe ?

MPGe is an attempt to equate distance and electrical energy [kWh] to distance and chemical energy [gallons of galoline]. The EPA says that 1 gallon of gasoline is equal to about 115,000 BTU [gasoline burned into carbon dioxide and water vapor] which is equal to 33.7 kWh. One horsepower is equal to about 746 watts and to 550 lb-ft/s [as in lifting 55 lb 10 ft in 1 second]. Also 1 mile is 5280 feet. Plugging in the numbers: 1 hp = 375 lb-miles/hour, Therefore 1 Ge [gallon electric] = 33.7 kWh = 45.174 hp-h = 16940 lb-miles. i.e. 100 MPGe should be enough energy to push 169.4 lbf for 100 miles. Note that the 169.4 lbf is the force pushing the vehicle and not the vehicle weight. [Let me know if I slipped a digit!]
