Cool Wow

So I am slightly mind blown..

Lets start with a small intro. I own a 2019 Clarity Touring Plug-In.
My commute from home to work is exactly 55 miles. (so 110 miles per day, at least)
I charge on a L1 at home and on a L2 at work.
In the morning I tend to run out of charge about 10-15 miles away from work, in the evening about 5-10 miles away from home and on occasion I can make it all the way home with 0.2-0.5 miles left on the charge.

So, my last "tank of gas" lasted me 1388 miles, filled up 6.329 gallons = 219.31 MPG's!!!!! ($22.15)

I used to fill up at least twice per week at about $70 per tank. The Clarity is essentially paying for it self in fuel savings.

just wanted to share

You are experiencing the wonders of the Clarity PHEV syndrome....

Yes your mileage is very good considering how little fuel you actually burn.
I love mine - no fuel used for 5 days of the week on my wife's commute too...
She loves not having to fill up each week.

Next try to get the entire commute on EV only - using a lot more regen paddle braking and coasting.
You would be amazed at how much you can regenerate back in EV power....

It's a different ballgame now - you'd need to also add in the cost of your L2 charging AND your L1 charging at home for a dollars to dollars comparison. In general for me, it tends to be about a 50% savings over gasoline.
