And you figured that his at the pump numbers were correct?  As opposed
to the Prius numbers?

Tell us again how a "volume per miles" calculation requires knowledge of
the energy content of the fluid itself, instead of simply reflecting the
energy content of the fluid itself.

Your question is irrelevant to finding the answer to the original
question.  The two factors in  mpg are miles, the distance traveled,
and gallons.  You don't need to know the energy content of a gallon to
measure it.  A gallon is a unit of volume, not energy.

The "original question" was not an MPG calculation.

The "original question" is "why is the Prius calculated MPG
*consistently* wrong?"

Not one time, *consistently* wrong.

Of course, in YOUR scientific method you know that it was "consistently
wrong" HOW?  By reading the newsgroup?

It differed from the ad-hoc at the pump calculation.  Which one, if
either one, was correct?
