Electric cars vs gas cars cost per mile
Electric vehicles are now widely available.
The energy efficiency of gasoline-powered vehicles is measured in miles per gallon (mpg).
But how do we figure out how much it costs to drive an electric car in terms of energy?
According to multiple ChargePoint empty to fill charges I’ve done, a full charge consumes about 15kWh.
Your electricity bill is unusually high in comparison to your gas bill. Maybe look into time-of-use billing? The national average for gas is higher, while the national average for electricity is lower. I don’t recall the numbers right now, but I used national averages in a post in this sub a while back (which also happen to be nearly identical to my local rates). In that post, I calculated that driving an electric vehicle costs the same per mile as driving a car that gets 88 miles per gallon of gas. It’s not free, but compared to national average rates, electricity is significantly less expensive.
If your numbers are correct and cannot be improved, you should consider:
electric: $2.67 $2.67/47mi = $0.0568/mi 15kWh @ $0.0178/kWh = $2.67
The cost of ten thousand miles per year is $568.00.
$2.56 per gallon, 42 mpg = $0.0609 per mile, 10k miles per year = $609.00
