220mpg 50cc Hybrid Scooter

I wonder how reliable this would actually be. It is still pretty cool.

It is cute, but I have to wonder how they arrived at the 220mpg figure? It seems that they are not using a US standard test (as they exceed 35 mph regularly) and that they are factoring in the battery drain (220mpg gas+electric ?). So while I'm glad to see such options, and affordable ones as well, reporting an exact mpg figure needs to be done with a bit more care for a commercial offering, IMHO.

It's limited to ~35mph on gas and ~20mph on electricity so I imagine they figure roughly half and half would result in ~220mpg.
