    Why is the current trend among car manufactures that are producing electric vehicles to use Mile Per Galon electric Instead of MPW,Miles per watt and KW/100Km for the metric system?

    This leads to false measurements of efficiency and how much it will cost to travel with the vehicle. They do not tell that when you charge something you actually are using more electricity then what the battery holds.

    One of the worse claims of the efficiency is when Chevy claimed that the volt could get 230 MPG.
