There are people who could have a comfortable life without telling the
Truth. I'm thinking in terms of actors such as, Sean Penn, Robert
Redford and all the actors/director that made this film possible...


Without CORRUPTION we could be riding vehicles that did 900 miles per
gallon. NO BS!



A velomobile with an electric motor should be about 400 mpg.

We have a guy in the Power Assist Yahoo group that gets 1500-2400-
MPG(e) regularly according to his Cycle Analyst gauge but he augments
his motor with a large amount of leg power. He does his long rides
with a bicycle club's fastest group and uses his motor to go back and
pull dropped riders back into the group, repeatedly, that's when he
gets the higher energy use readings, when they all go at their own
pace is when he gets the better readings, he regularly gets 100 miles
from just under a Kwh of battery capacity.
