This a great qoute: Our calculations show that the money needed to buy a single gallon of gas at $4/gallon would buy enough electricity to power a fully-electric Lightfoot velomobile for more than 1000 miles; therefore, we are justified in claiming that an electrically-assisted Lightfoot velo "gets 1000 miles per gallon". This kind of efficiency in an easy-to-pedal assisted velomobile, combined with utilitarian and all-weather qualities, place the designed-for-practicality velomobile in the position of being a very viable "second car" for the neighborhood transportation needs of many families, and even a primary local transport for health-, environment- and budget-conscious persons.

1000 miles per gallon! Now that's serious
