Total Elapsed Time

I'm trying to get my company to adopt FogBugz, so I was tasked with giving a presentation.  I was asked a question, and I wasn't sure of the answer; I think I know, but I don't want to give a made up answer to a VP.  I've searched the forums and haven't found a definitive answer, so I apologize if this question has been asked before.

In a Filtered List, there is a summary block below.  In that block, is the Total Elapsed Time 'real' hours, or is it based on the % Time on FogBugz tasks?

I realized that wasn't very clear.  In this example,

%Time set to 80%
Total Elapsed Time:  22 Days 6 hours

Is that 182 hours (22 8 hour days) or 146.8 (22 6.4 hour days).

It is based on real hours and does not factor in the % time in FogBugz tasks.

However, the conversion between hours and days is done by using the Site Working Schedule, so in your example, that will determine whether it's 6.4 hour days or 8 hour days.  This is confusing and we need to figure out a better way to handle this situation.
