In its Fuel Economy Guide for 2016 model vehicles, the Environmental Protection Agency gives data on 11701170 vehicles. There are a number of high outliers, mainly hybrid gas‑electric vehicles. If we ignore the vehicles identified as outliers, however, the combined city and highway gas mileage of the other 11461146 vehicles is approximately Normal with mean 23.023.0 miles per gallon (mpg) and standard deviation 4.94.9 mpg. The 2016 Volkswagen Beetle with a four‑cylinder 1.81.8‑L engine and automatic transmission has combined gas mileage of 2828 mpg. Find the percentage of 2016 vehicles that have better gas mileage than the Beetle's gas mileage. (Enter your answer rounded to two decimal places.)   Percentage:
