EVs will never catch on as long as they have limited cruising range. It's like being a dog chained to a pole.

My gage

My assumed MPG 28

Price per gallon for fuel $4.309

Assume trip distance 300 miles

Gallons used 10.71

Cost per trip $46.17

I made an EXCEL spreadsheet in 5 minutes for the above calculation. If there was a way to attach it for other readers, I would.

But...but...but - why not turn that around again and use the metric gage modified for us dumb Americans: Dollars per Hundred miles? It has the benefit of being a more linear concept. That gage ought to be on the dashboard of every new car - digital, of course.

This will increase as fuel cost is likely to skyrocket in the future. I have hedged a bit with a home solar array which should be fully amortized next year. As long as I charge at home my fuel cost will be zero.
