    How much do you spend on EV power per week i.e. on average what does it cost you per week to fuel your Tesla?

    This obviously depends on the amount of driving you do?

    Has anyone worked out their average weekly spend over a year?

    My spend for year 1 was $792 for approx 30,000 km or $66 per month or less that 3 cents per km.

    Less than $8 per week for around 300km. I average around 200Wh per km so 5km per kWh. I use off peak pricing at 12c/kWh.

    Nothing, I use solar exclusively for the tesla. My solar generation meter reads higher than my hpwc consumption meter.
    My cost therefore is a contribution to the capital purchase of the 3.5kw system, which was the equivalent of 10 months fuel costs in my last car.

    My average distance has been 1800 miles/month. This works out to $9.62 cents per week for charging over the past three years.

    Free power for me too.
    All solar (perhaps 95% of total usage)or supercharger.
    Stand alone solar-no grid.
    Averaging about 1000kms per month.
    VERY satisfying guilt free motoring.
