How much does your base charge go up to? (Looked it up... it's $3......) So you'd start saving money after driving 100 miles. You'd be cutting the cost of fuel by >50%. PLUS all the money you'd save on heating at night in the winter

Then there's always solar... 'Free' electricity during the day. Cheap electricity at night. Can't beat that

Even w/o cheaper electricity... you're talking about a difference of $0.01/mile. I drove a Jetta before I got my Tesla. The maintenance costs of the Jetta between timing belts, oil changes, EGR cooler etc added up to >$0.01/mile...
