Why do you want to know?

Do a straight line run once, then put the battery straight on charge and see how much you have to put back in.

You need to get one of these:

And install it between battery and speedo.

Look for the amount of voltage drop at X amp draw.
Also, a great way to adjust boost timing, gearing and motor timing.

Too many environmental variables to be accurate.

The only way to know for sure is to use a Novak datalogger.
