Just in general terms, how much we going to save in propulsion this year?
Easy to compare and calculate with her previous Ford Explorer:
20,000 miles a year.
17 miles per gallon.
$2.80 per gallon
$3300 in gas for last year.
But how do we calculate the electricity used?
Is the running average shown in the car of "WhM (say 290)" mean watt hours per mile?
I have to look up what we pay our electric company per Kv. We pay a flat fee per Kv so daytime, night time, winter, summer always the same. Should be easy to find out cost.
But how to calculate? Is indeed the average (about 290-310) per the running total on screen about right? Guess it'll go up in winter. I'd round up on everything.
But told her my guess is instead of $3300 in gas we will spend $1100 in electricity.
Most all our charging (90+%) will be at home over night.
Although, her company did say they will put in a 240 outlet for her in the back of the shop to charge up the three days a week she goes in. So that will be a free 52 miles three times a week.
