While the equations you gave make sense, did you take into account the factor that a car ususally only gets about 25% of the actual chemical energy present in the 'gasoline' out of it? I mean the figures that you took from RBB seemed rather high to me, but I don't have a copy conveniently here to double check those figures... So, if RBB vehicles actualy go that high, then I'll say your equations seem fully accurate...

Amonchare, Your equation is a work of genuis. Not only does it reduce fuel efficency to one easy to use equation, but it's in line with FASA (assuming the weights are correct). Once we figure out how much the average car will weigh we can mod the equation to fit it and we're good to go. It's amazing what you can do with a physics book.
