@icare4america @melmc I'd love to see real numbers but that study is junk. They didn't measure use at all, they just assumed EV drivers drove far less than gas cars based on factors they basically just made up.

"we adjust the annual mileage for each vehicle dependent on its reported all-electric range"

An electric with a range of 200 miles isn't driven half as much as a gas with a 400 mile range. It's driven probably exactly the same, with an extra 20m charge stop on the rare 6 hour drive.

@sj @icare4america I didn't notice any mention of the hydrocarbons produced in the generation of electric power used to recharge the vehicles. Seems like a fatal omission if you wish to make any reasonable claim about the reduction of hydrocarbons.
