# Non-Production

# Electric

- Many electric cars are 100 MPG equivalent - so not a problem to achieve 100 mpg in electrics - based on the energy equivalent of gasoline, but stored in batteries themselves

# Hydrogen

Hydrogen internal combustion engines and drive trains appear to be more efficient than even fuel cells, and are 2x as efficient as gasoline ICEs. (see Book - energy chapter. Thus, it can be said that to get a 100 MPG equivalent on gasoline, we only need be 50 mpg equivalent on hydrogen! That is a cheat - but also an easy way to attain 100 MPG cars in practice.

# MPG Measurement

- Measurement for highway MPG is apparently taken at an average speed of 50 - [3]
