If that was for my looooong post.
I have a 70s hotrod whose flat six gets about the same mileage as my V8 pickup, and I was in the internet-expert "electric cars are just as bad but in other ways" camp for a long time. I could also bicycle to work, but won't, so I've got no virtue to proclaim here just anecdotal experience.
The data is just interesting to me because I hear a lot of people say "your car runs on coal" (partly true!) as though that means it costs as much, and emits as much/more CO2 than an ICE car (objectively untrue). The car makes economic sense but still is a net CO2 emitter, even if that's at a dramatically reduced rate.
