I may have missed it, but have they finalized a gas tank size? Ten gallons would be awsome.
I believe I saw 8 gallon capacity somewhere....
In perfect conditions - 672 miles on a tank .... if you’re talking about the Elio’s capacity.
OK. 8 gallons x 84 MPG = 672
Still that would have to be in a "hypermiler" style of driving. (all other circumstances being in harmony).
A very long time ago Elio changed there MPG predictions (as advertised) from a "definate 84 MPG" to "Up to 84 MPG. I am predicting That in "reality" the average person will be getting 73 MPG.
OMG.....not ONLY 73
Yup, and then you get 584 miles per tankful.
That would only get me to Montana from my house (somewhere in the middle of the state) then I would have to try and find a gas station.
Ohhh the pain … ohh (cough cough) I would have to figure out a way to carry spare gas cans.
I got it!! Saddle Bags! Yeah, that would do it, I could carry an extra 10 gallons and then be able to do 1,314 miles at a stretch.
Woo Hoo , California here I come.
Which one they thinking of dividing California into 3 states, ya know sort-a like WA which is B.S.
Lay low heat wave coming!!
Next week, next week.
And I for one plan on sitting on the back deck and enjoying the sunshine.
I always get better mileage than advertised and I don't consider myself a hypermiler.
Tires inflated to specs,nothing removed from car, maintaining the speed limit. If driving the speed limit, not racing towards a red light and not making jackrabbit starts makes me a hypermiler I guess I am one.
Well except for following the speed limit <grin>
