Can I correlate my wh/mile to mpg?

For example on highway I can get 60mpg hyper milling ... Maybe 35-40mpg in town.

Can I then say my wh/mile will probably be more (less efficient) in town vs the freeway ?

He did say he can get 210/wh driving nicely. I can't guarantee I can beat that, but I'm pretty sure I can hypermile past that..

Can u hypermile in an ev (I only usually go as far as just putting the clutch in and coasting in neutral.

Side note: while driving I thought of regenerative shocks. Is there such a thing?

Does anyone here live in Oregon?
