Yep, the ZENN gets the equivelant of 245 MPG!
Not to be too crotchety, but I'm calling BS on that claim, based on figures seen from your electric motorbike and my EV.

There's a member at cmpg with a Zenn. I asked him to collect some kill-a-watt readings from his driving, but he wasn't interested.

Anyway, sounds like a cool show. One of the big downsides to the one we'll be dragging the ForkenSwift to at the end of the month is that it's strictly static. No demonstration drives permitted (with or without passengers). Insurance thing.
