Oh yes... I forgot to ask - the home-based supercharger. How much current do they take? Remember my situation, too. I really don't have any room on either driveway right now for vehicles, so along the road from my gate would be where things would get charged. In fact, that's where trucks, tractors and trailers are presently stored. Also, I don't really get 40mpg unless my car is devoid of a trailer.You don't need to guess... this is a known quantity. ~300wh per mile for a large EV.
So on average ~130g of CO2 per mile vs ~2x that for a diesel that gets ~40mpg. And that 130g/mi for an EV assumes grid mix which EVs don't use 'grid mix'. They are predominantly charged off-peak when renewables are more abundant. Soon enough we should be able to aggregate EVs so that the vast majority of energy used to charge them will be surplus renewables that would have gone to waste if there wasn't a wheeled battery waiting to soak up orphaned electrons.
