Vadim.

I followed up on your question regarding which small-scale units for fuel consumption such as “Instant Fuel Consumption” we should use in the spec. Hirabayashi-san may be able to offer some vocabulary solutions here. I have also contacted SAE.

Based off my research, kWh/100-mi would be a unit of measurement that would work for all cars: electric and gasoline. 

What I have not been able to answer however, is whether hydrogen car mileage (evaluated as “mpa” or mega pascals), could also be expressed in kWh/100-mi. We’ll need some help with this one.
