how is it a lie? the capital cost of an electric car is more than a gas powered one, but you can operate it at one tenth the fuel cost. and that doesn't factor in zero oil changes and brakes that last 100,000 miles. and what is your opportunity cost of filling your gas tank? it's what 10 minutes of your day each week or two. that is 4-8 hours a year. is that time valuable to you? how about standing out in the cold and rain pumping dead dinosaur juice into your car? what is the value of eliminating that?

I'm just making a point that fuel efficiency is a lie.
