  •  Most EVs measure in miles per kW efficiency (1+ / 0-)

    So I guess the .3 is the reciprocal of what I'm used to seeing.  I get around 4.5 miles per kWh in my Leaf.  I charge at midnight (timer in the charging equipment) and pay Time of Use charges of 9 cents/kWh.  Since I have solar, I sell power to the utility at much higher rates.

    Right now you can lease a 2012 Leaf for very low rates, literally less than most people pay in monthly gasoline bills.  The electricity bills are trivial.

    In capitalist America, bank robs you!
