Default Re: ECO Question - Electric vs Gas

Actually I don't find that to be true here in Oregon where I also live. I have a pusher trailer with a 16" wheel 1000w motor, legal here, running at 48v using a 12ah lithium battery that I can go 30 plus miles with averaging a little under 20 mph and it will go up the steepest hills better than my 4 cycle 49cc gas engine, not legal, that runs through the bikes gearing via a jackshaft. However the gas engine has better top end on the flat and will go all day long. So like I said, horses for courses.
