The electric scooter with lead batteries is even with electric power from a lignite power plant better than a 4 stroke engine scooter. The red lantern of the worst has the 2 stroke engine scooter.
2 stroke - 4l gasoline
4 stroke - 3l gasoline
Lignite 5 kWh

Ideal addition to a car
Drive spontaneously in the city without sorrows about parking lots and traffic jams.
But because of the bad noise and exhaust gas of gasoline scooters, only electric scooters are acceptable for fellowman and environment.
Even with electric power from lignite emitts the electic scooter less CO2 than the gasoline scooter.
Until August 14th 2007, we had some test drives with lithium scooters, but no opportunity for precise consumption measurement. By the theoretical data, we assume the consumption will be 4 instead of 5 kWh/100km.
This because of the better efficiency of lithium batteries and 30 kg less weight compared to lead batteries.
