  • Why Electric Vehicles

  • Test 100% EV in urban commuter setting!Is the EV economical to maintain ?Will our commuters benefit ?

    Based on 20 LEAFs and an average 30 RTM and average 21 workdays/montha Daily light duty vehicle trips per average person recruited - before joining commuter van = 0.638324364047122 (based on 2010 commuter van entry survey data - 2010 King County Metro)b Fuel economy light duty vehicles 20.4 mpg; fuel economy vans for 2012 is 16.070 through October (KC Metro - RO M5 fuel consumption summary/Metro Transit TSS reports). Light duty vehicles see: http://www.epa.gov/cleanenergy/energy-resources/refs.htmlc Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emitted per gallon of gasoline burned is 0.00892 metric tons (http://www.epa.gov/cleanenergy/energy-resources/refs.html ). Pounds per metric ton are 2204.623.d To convert CO2 to GHG emissions (CO2e) applied the ratio of carbon dioxide emissions to total GHG emissions, all expressed as carbon dioxide equivalents. For passenger vehicles ratio = 0.977 (http://www.epa.gov/cleanenergy/energy-resources/refs.html)eTo convert metric tons to pounds, multiplied by 2204.623.f Liters of CO2 gas/pound of CO2 emitted = (454 grams/pound)*(1 mole/44 grams CO2)*(22.4 Liters of CO2 gas/mole) = 231 Liters/pound CO2
