Hey all,

 

 

 

Some may note I've added my usage to my signature. Pretty disheartening seeing what it costs.

I have been tracking my car for 2719KM and I have spent $907.84. Lol...
Post the signature link from your Fuelly if you run that and we can keep a live running tally of what are cars are using and discuss. If it gains traction maybe we should keep discussion and tracking seperate. But I am keen to see what other geek use.

Cheers

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you'd like to be truly disheartened, gross that up for income tax to see what you had to actually earn in order to buy the fuel. Then take the gross total and deduct all the tax and duty from it and work out the effective tax rate on the total....!

My last work vehicle managed about 89 litres/100 km. Mind you it did it pretty quickly..

I give it less than 30 minutes before someone come in and posts their "equivalent cost" for their EV :-)

I give it less than 31 minutes before someone come in and posts their "equivalent cost" for their EV because they're not paying any road user charges or tax. :-)

 

 

HAHAHA YOU TOO CAN BE JUST LIKE ME AND DODGE ROAD USER CHARGES BY BUYING AN EV!!!

 

In other news, I really do chuckle every time I hear someone moan about petrol prices.

 

 

I wet myself laughing when you see a leaf nosed into a charger on state highway one for 2 hours in the rain and I only need to spend 2 minutes filling up in the dry!



Nobody sits there for 2 hours, it doesn’t take remotely that long to charge. And considering I can commute from Warkworth to Newmarket and back with charge to spare, I don’t generally have to do that anyway.

 

No, Of course not. But it sure does feel like it on a wet raining Sunday in warkworth when all you want to do is be at home.. Well, That is what the couple said who were infuriated at their leaf..

Don't worry when/if EVs become the predominant vehicles on the road the tax will become very apparent as the government will have to replace what they've lost in road tax from petrol sales.

yawn, can we move on yet. I get sick of reading all the same argyments (wa wa range, wa wa road users).

 

 

 

Are there any sites like fuelly for EVs that records stats of $ per kw or other such metric.  I saw on fully charged show they started to mention a metric but can't remember it...and I don't know how transferable it would be to litres per 100km or other reference. 

 

I guess converting to pure dollars per distance travelled might be the starkest comparison.

But how much time does it take when you factor in the time used justifying that it doesn't really take that long to charge and you usually charge while at home anyway?

 

 

 

N :-)

 

 

 

 

I'd have to run the numbers, but after you factor in the boost from self-renewing smug it becomes clear that anyone who can't or won't buy an EV is simply a puppy-killing monster. And I just can't have that on my conscience, you know?

If its the Blade Master (or Master G) then a 3.5L V6 will do that driven hard through an automatic.

Flip the Fleet have all that data, although it depends somewhat on how religious you are about resetting the km/kWh measure on your car each month I guess. Depending on the weather (you use the heat more in the cold, of course) and who's been driving it (lets just say I drive the Leaf more often so I am ... more adjusted to optimal driving) I could get anywhere between 6.6km/kWh and 7km/kWh which at 20c/kWh works out around $3/100km @ 6.6km/kWh vs. anywhere between $14/100km @ 6.2L/100km and $32/100km @ 14L/100km depending on your car. If you live in the Vector area and you're militant enough about it you could probably run your car for free off their fast chargers, but it's not the best way to keep your batteries healthy.

 

The car I replaced with the Leaf was an old Swift which got about 7.2L/100km and I have a daily commute of ~110km. We also now do the weekend driving in the Leaf vs. our other car which is a Pajero, so not driving that unless we have to saves even more money. To fully lay it out, I borrowed money to buy the Leaf so of course I'm currently paying that back. The Leaf cost a lot more than the Swift did but even so it will pay itself back in savings on fuel and servicing. I estimate that even if I spend $10,000 to replace the batteries after owning it for four years (which I may not have to do) then I'll at least roughly break even vs. servicing an older ICE.

 

I am under the impression that the Teslas are significantly less efficient (apparently they are around the 4.5km/kWh level) than the Leaf and the Ioniqs a bit better.

eNV-200 just a nudge under 18kWh per 100km in one charge with a load

 

2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid 5.3L per 100km over 70,000.

Pajero 3.2 TDi.  Nelson to Dunedin to see Pink via Hamner and Kaikoura on 70-something litres of diesel.  The fuel economy of the Pajero is interesting.  The longer the trip, the better it gets.

When the national fleet is 2% they will introduce RUC on Heavy, It will be reviewed in June 2020 for light vehicles. Until then you are living on borrowed time.

How far is your commute? I've often thought of switching to an eBike for mine (about 24Km each way). I do ride my standard road bike occasionally and I can get it done in about 1hr 15mins. Not too bad considering the drive on a good day takes 40mins and up to and some times over an hour on a bad traffic day.
