Generally speaking, one would not bother calculating for a CVT. One, the engagement ratio is of little consequence, when the high ratio is calculated and implemented properly. Two, some CVT's top out at 1:1, making the CVT entirely invisible in the equation. Three, the most common CVT's that DON'T macx out at 1:1, feature a 10% overdrive. An added bonus for sure, but can be easily factored after the fact.

But thank you for posting!
