I get about 12 miles out of my lead acid 36V x 12aH = 432WH

432WH / 12 miles = 36 WH per mile

30 miles X 36WH per mile = 1080WH

1080WH / 48V = 22.5aH

My system is not efficient, it is brushed. It is running at about 17mph and that is a 12 mile trip using almost all power, just a little pedaling, with very little reserve power left when I get home.

I think you are about right at 48V 20aH.

I would look at LiFePo batteries myself. The weight reduction is really worthwhile for handling and more importantly more miles per aH. It is more fun to pedal. But I am still running a lead sled so what do I know.
