How do you get 300 mpg equivalent in an on road electric car?
With my leaf in the best I can do is around 200 to 260mpge in eco mode with the cruise control on at about 40mph and the leaf has regenerative braking.
Then as I increase speed from 40 to 70mph the mpge drops off down to around 130ish. Even if I could do 200mpge at 60 to 65mph I would be a happy camper. At 60mph I'm some where around 140 to 150mpge.

I added a tag. The most important tag. You do know you are one of the top 70 searches right?
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
