Looking to calculate the efficiency of the generator system. Comparing ev to er gives a relationship, then tying that back to the efficiency of the ev would give actual efficiency. Right? Average, of course.
Um no,

You would need a scangage or dashdaq like device that could take instantaneous power and fuel flow rate metrics to give you an estimate and since the volt is almost always sending power to the wheels and battery at the same time you would get strange behavior and likely just nonsense
