- The average American car uses 100 times its weight in ancient plants (converted to oil).
- 7/8th of the energy never gets to the weheel is lost in engine, idling, driveline, etc
- 1/2 of the remaining 1/8th heats tyres, road, air

- So only 0.3% of the energy used moves the driver
- We can easily and confidently make that more intelligent.
- And this is just talking about cars
