Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

MPGe = miles per gallon equivalent

I cme across this at the SAE Engr Development Auto show in Detroit Mich in Apr 2009. I think it has some relation to the relative cost of Regular 87 rated unleaded fuel.
But the TRUE facts were not posted and this is just a guess at this point.

WHAT is the accepted calculation for this "MPGe" based on different fuel sources. It does seem to be based on various fuel sources and their relative energy of cost or carbon or a combination thereof.

Thank you This should be added to your conversion chart. at least a reference so others are not confused as I was.

The best application was an internal comb engin that was designed only for E85 fuel. It was rated at 104 MPGe, but rated on E85 it was approx 83 MPG.
