A popular local EV rally involves an EV hill climb up a local ski mountain with EV owners each driving their own car while measuring and then sharing their energy usage.  This event will be an on-line "Zoom" meetup that will explain just such a rally.

The real event is a four-stage rally, and data at the end of each stage are added to a spreadsheet that calculates the efficiency of each car in recovering the potential energy gained from the altitude change.  How this is done may not be intuitive, but we will explain the logic, the formulae, and the results for several different EVs.  We have photos to share, plus the master spreadsheet, and we hope to teach everyone how to organize their own EV efficiency rally.  

It is also important to note that our findings apply equally to braking on flat ground, because regeneration can recapture kinetic as well as potential energy.  High school physics proves its worth!

We will also unveil an exciting finding for the bravest EV drivers among us.  Join us to find out what that terrifying eureka moment was all about.
