As usual Zee, you are fundamentally and fatally flawed in every part of your rant- by the numbers
You don't address anything in detail (your typical MO). If you think you did, then point to the post numbers you claim you have.
Yes I do, that's your first flaw. I go into exact detail with my points. They are posted for all to see (even you) you just bait with your legendary ad hom while saying nothing
MPG and MPGe aren't as "made up and vague" as you conspiratorially believe. And nobody here has claimed they are completely perfect or 100% accurate. They are a standardized tool for people to compare vehicles in terms of fuel efficiency and the cost - but you believe there's some nefarious goal behind it all.
They are in fact made up because they are INDIRECT metrics with no linear standards and they are not standardized across all vehicles horizontally and vertically. That makes them useless for any comparison between ICE and EV. As far as goals, you want to see "nefarious' and "conspiracy" go look at Agenda 21, 30 the GND.
If you would have actually read some of the information presented you'd see that the testing is a simulation in the lab, which has to be that way to ensure apples-to-apples comparisons.
I have and its non sequitur to the question. A recount of fraudulent votes still gives the same end tally. If you understodd anything about the science- you wouldn't make such blindly incorrect arguments in the first place.
And as I said before, all 4 of the last vehicles I've owned have all hit the rated MPG figures on the window stickers. I keep meticulous gas mileage records, and over a 10 year period had the same 50 mile mixed city/highway commute. Also did many 300 mile 98-99% all highway driving trips with fill-ups right before and after the drive. Guess what, I always saw +/- 1 MPG of the rated highway MPG.
I believe you 100% but none of it is relevant or germane to the context of this thread.
As far as MPGe, I think you believe it's just some "calculation" with no verification testing, but if you actually dig into the subject you'd see it's also verified through similar vehicle testing to ensure the conversion factor is relatively accurate. So what's wrong with that besides it being some cockamamie misconception that it's all some kind of grand conspiracy in your mind?
I know exactly what it is and its not "verified' to any meaningful degree by anyone for use as a basis of comparison for anything.
If you think it's so useless then tell us all what is a better way to rate fuel or equivalent fuel consumption.
I did earlier- go and read instead of going off half cocked- here's a recap
In order to compare an ICE to an EV in terms of equal consumption, there will have to be a test standard of uniform usage of energy ( balanced scales) then the usage has to be even ( same conditions, loads, velocities etc) and the comparison standards ( time, distance, cost etc) have to be uniform so each weighs the same.
Hand me a PO and I'll build a complete metrics package that will pass any scrutiny.
