What value of “benefit” do you place on reduced pollution/emission? Without your definition of value there is no way to determine the cost benefit ratio.

I don't have grandchildren. But I'd like for the children of 2035 to have cleaner air that I do. I put my money where my mouth is and spent 17,000.00 to reduce my electrical use.

I gather from another thread that OP has sold his RV and moved on. I'm sure someone else will step up to perpetuate the EV panic.


Who said I moved on?
I'm still here for ya' bud.
LOL- Yep, I've changed hobbies a few times. It can be hard to wean from our online "families." You'll find that the discussions become less relevant to you and your input becomes less relevant to the discussions. Before you know it you'll be liberated! Plus, if you ever decide to take up RVing again it's likely folks will still be here nattering about the same old same old. [emoticon]

Kinda depends on a bunch of things. Obviously how much charge you still have in the battery is the biggy. But also the speed and brand of the charger you are at. But in general terms here are a coupe of typical examples for us on a typical charge stop.

At a V3 Tesla supercharger that charges up to a max speed of 250 KW or so I would say our average is around 22 bucks. Typical charge stop is 20 to 30 minutes, usually closer to 20.

At a BC hydro charger its probably closer to 10 or 12 bucks, but most are 50 KW machines so a typical charge stop is closer to 45 or 50 minutes for us. We actually target the slower chargers for lunch stops as it usually takes us about 45 minutes to eat, walk the chihuahua, maybe a quick walk or pick up a couple items in the store.

By the way, that is an electric Harley Davison charging beside me. [emoticon]

Other charging companies have different rates. Depends on speed etc. Sometimes a fast charge is nice and sometimes a slow charge is more convenient. Everybody travels differently.

Hope that helps.

Our neighbor works at Macy's at Baybrook in Houston. Charging is free there. Guess where she charges her Tesla?

Idk, but I tried to find the picture of charging our SRT8 at an EV spot, must've deleted it.
Only parking spot left in a parkade (Canadian for parking garage) was for EVs, but I saw a Tesla parked in a dino burner spot, so I opened the gas tank filler door and stuck the charging cable in the filler neck.
Was good to go for the night. But the gas tank still read half empty in the morning.[emoticon]

ROFLMAO! I see why you can't let go of this place. Where else can we bash gays and pointy headed smart folks in the same thread?

Just install a battery tender and run the cord to the fuel door, plug it into the level 1 charger.
