Comparatively speaking, I'm now paying about $40 a week in gasoline. I did plug in at home sometimes in my electric car but only noticed the electric bill go up about $20 a month. The rest was free charging. So that's about $140 in savings per month in the electric car. In a year that's $1,680. If I had to replace the battery every 5 years I would have been tied. But here where I live in Colorado I expect a Leaf Battery could last 10 years.

But I don't think getting the wife to understand that we needed to creep along at 30mph down the highway with no heater for the next couple hours and still have a chance of needing a tow just so I could save that much money was really worth it.
