The F-150 is much More Efficient While Towing
More Efficient means more total vehicle miles can be driven if an EV is charged while being towed by the F-150.

The F-150 owner can drive more than twice as far if he tows an EV and then drives the EV. In the above video the EV is 10X the efficiency as the F-150. The F-150 measured 10.7 mpg and the EV was 108 mpg.

Efficiency When Charging While Towing

Sun Nov 17, 2019 3:26 pm

Hey FiddlerJohn, I brought these two posts over here as they are perhaps stand-alone curiosities rather than being off-topic in the "i-MiEV won't charge" thread.

This is reminiscent of one of my favorite books - "How to Lie With Statistics". :twisted:
EVs: 2 Wht/Blu SE Prem., '13 Tesla MS85, 3 156v CorbinSparrows (2 Li-ion), 24v EcoScoot(LiFePO4)
EV Conv: 156v '86 Ram PU, 144v '65 Saab 96
Hybrids: 48v1kW bike
ICE: '88 Isuzu Trooper. Mothballed: '67 Saab (orig.owner), '76 MBZ L206D RHD RV
