(Newser) – So the Nissan Leaf's efficiency technically isn't measured in gallons, but the feds say it's running at the equivalent of 99 mpg, reports the AP—106 city and 92 highway. The EPA says the Leaf can go about 73 miles on a full charge (that's down from Nissan's estimates of 100 miles) and run an average $561 a year in electricity.
