    that, the price and the range of electric vehicles keeps me on hooked on gasoline
    But if the price of gas goes above $5 gal then I'll consider electric

    I find all the above comments very interesting.
    We have had our Prius Prime, (which is a PHEV) for 9 months now. When first starting to drive it the vehicle is always in electric mode. When that part of the battery runs down the vehicle kicks into hybrid mode, which then uses gas and battery. We don’t have an EV charger in our condo garage as yet (working on it), but there is a gasoline station about a 5 min. walk away where we can charge the vehicle. For a full charge it takes about 1 ¼ hours. No cost to us. Our city has many EV chargers, and there are numerous malls that have chargers, so we use them.
    The good thing with our vehicle, is when we are on the highway, we can charge the battery while driving, so that when we arrive at our destination we can then use electric only.
    The vehicle calculates our L/100 km, so using electric and some gas occasionally we get 2.3 L/100 km, which is about 118 miles per gallon. We are happy with that.

    Well, new plot twist on me electric car saga. Tesla creatively got slid dye Model 3 in at the eleventh hour for eligibility for the Canadian federal EV rebate. So, it looks like the Leaf is out and I’ll be rolling the dice beta testing a Tesla. Wish me luck, I may need it. o_O

    Forgive me, and maybe it's just too early for me, but the above just isn't clear. Is there some code I'm missing? I have looked back through the thread, but it's like coming in on the middle of a conversation.

    but WTF, I wish you luck as requested.

    I resurrected this thread from 2018 to see how other TUG members were doing with their electric cars since I was in the market.
