I don't even understand why people complain about gas prices but switching to a cheaper fuel type is not an option. I know the initial purchase price is a legitimate factor, but I'm sure there are people who buy $40k new cars that could have bought an EV instead but didn't want to. If price was the only concern, then there should be no new BMW or Mercedes at the Costco gas station because those people had the money to buy an EV but didn't.I don't try to convince, I just tell remind them to stop complaining when gas is expensive etc.
I supercharged at night and it was only $12-13 for a full charge from 10% to 99%, which I believe is equivalent to a full tank for most gas cars. You can only get about 2 gallons of gas in CA for $12. Sometimes charging can be free, then your savings are technically infinite if you can utilize it. There was a free chargepoint in Glendale AZ shopping center that was about 1 mile from my friend's apartment, I was the only car to use 1 of 4 charging stations after 12am and got free charging for 3 straight days for local commutes. I had an electric scooter in my trunk so I was able to get back easily, which is probably the main reason no one uses it overnight because it's mainly used during the day when people are shopping. And seems EV owners are not aware of putting an electric scooter in your trunk to utilize farther charging stations.
I could have also used the Tesla supercharger but it made more sense to leave my car overnight than have to wait in my car for an hour each day of commuting.
