1.01 makes no sense as a money factor as it's way too high.
You just take whatever the money factor is and multiply it by 2400. It's the interest rate. If they were giving you a 1.01 money factor then your interest rate would be 2,424%.

It would be much simpler if they just gave the interest rate, full stop. Don't need another metric that tells you the thing.

I'm guessing they actually meant .00130 which is the base MF for some of the programs right now.

That's exactly what they did  make it "look" like something it isn't and then the buyers, most of which don't know much about "arithmetic," run around afterwards telling their friends what a great interest rate they got (and what stellar negotiators they are)
