Do the stickers HAVE to be similar to gassers and diesels? Why can't they simply put something like "Watts per hour - CITY" or another objective measure? I know MPG is a common stat that most people understand, but only out of familiarity. As energy becomes more fungible in cars, we're probably going to have to switch to a common measure and/or list it along with MPG (for traditional cars).
