Crossed over on EV vs Gas!

OHM-RIDE was an executive lease and spent the first two years of it's life running around Washington DC on gas

Since I've had it there has been a steady climb in EV use with little dribs and drabs of gas use on my commute along with a few long trips.

Finally, I've made the crossover to having more EV miles than Gasoline miles.


Seriously, I didn't think that was preying on my mind all that much so I was surprised at how good it felt to see that happen. I celebrated with a couple of dunkin donuts (LOL)

I think that for a owner of a Volt who uses the vehicle for both commuting and overall driving, the design leads to 50% electric and 50% gasoline use. On my 4,000-mile vacation last summer, I found no charging stations. On my 4,000-mile vacation this summer, I paid about $10 three nights for campground sites with access to charging electricity. Paying $10 per night for $1 of electricity is irrational. My vehicle statistics have dropped from 180 MPG to 72 MPG. The lack of infrastructure and the travel delays for charging a battery pack is not going to replace gasoline for a long, long, long time ~ if ever.
