1/3 The Cost Per Mile!

During the last 1,167 miles I averaged 3.3 miles per kilowatt hour - It's winter here in the northeast, we have been doing some longer highway-speed road trips and the heater or defroster have usually been on full blast (with the heated seats and steering wheel too).

The bottom line is our LEAF has 1/3 the energy costs of our late VW New Beetle Convertible.

The OUCH! is my electric utility is Con Edison.  Last month I paid $0.17 per kilowatt hour for electricity (supply 5.2 cents and delivery 11.5 cents).  For the month of December 2012, driving our LEAF cost us $0.05 per mile (our old Bug would have cost $0.15 per mile - three times as much).

Again, thank you Nissan.  We love our LEAF!
