Default 82 MPG?

So, this news blip seems to be making its way around the internet: http://jalopnik.com/#!5787347/feds-estimate-fisker-karma-will-get-82-mpg

It references this: http://detnews.com/article/20110330/AUTO01/103300426/1361/GAO-criticizes-$25B-auto-loan-program

Although I can find mention anywhere where the Feds actually claim it gets 82MPG. This number is 100% arbitrary since it totally depends on how far a person needs to drive in a day. Some people with 200 mile commutes may get only 30MPG while others may get infinite MPG if they never use the generator. 82MPG is a useless number.

The number I want to know is the true MPG when the battery runs out and just the gas generator is running. I'd like to know what the car really gets when running just on gas alone since that's a useful figure to have.
