So, things are going well. I have an idea, looking for confirmation or counter arguments.

I can calculate the overall efficiency of the volt's series/parallel hybrid setup by using the gas (ER) efficiency divided by the EV efficiency, since i drain the battery every day.

On the last couple days, I calculate, ER is 31% as efficient as EV. Further, does that mean EV is .310/.337 = 92% efficient? Hold that, I'm sure I'm getting too tired for math.
