    Charging an Electric Vehicle In Public Can Cost Triple What Fueling Up a “Gas-Guzzler” Does
    Public EV charging can be ridiculously expensive. Here is what we paid to add 34 miles to a new 2022 model year EV at an EVgo charger.

    Charging an electric vehicle in public can range in price from free to very expensive. When we recently charged a new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt at an EVgo DC fast charger (DCFC) in Bedford, NH, we discover the pricey end of the spectrum can be more than it would cost to fuel a “gas-guzzling” V8-powered muscle car.

    $10.15 To Add 34 Miles of EV Range
    We charged up a Chevy Bolt using the EVgo DC fast charger, and the bill was $10.15. That amount of money added 34 miles of range to the Bolt. So, the cost per mile of energy was 30 cents per mile. Let’s compare that to a 2021 Dodge performance car we tested the prior week.

    The Dodge had 797 hp, and it returned a combined fuel mileage of 24 MPG in our use on the same route we tested the Bolt. We paid $2.90 per gallon for the gasoline it uses. Doing some “goes in’tahs,” the cost per mile for energy in the muscle car turns out to be 12 cents. Thus, the cost per mile to energize the Bolt was roughly triple what the V8 gas-powered car cost us.

    Well, under the Brandon Biden Administration, fuel is more expensive, so just using my 2010 F-150 for comparison, the truck itself says that I get 17.5 MPG. That means it will take sightly under two gellons for me to drive 34 miles.

    I took the picture last week at the closest fuel station to me; gas was $3.139 per gallon. Alas! it’s now up to $3.179 per gallon, so two gallons would cost me $6.358, or, in real money, $6.36.

    That’s still $3.79 less than what two gallons of electricity 34 miles of charge cost the Torque News people. Heck, I could get three gallons, or 52.5 miles, for $9.54, or 61¢ less than 34 miles of range cost in sparktricity.

    $10.15? At my local prices, that’s 3.1928 gallons, or 55.874 miles of range.

    Of course, as the Hirsute One said in a previous comment, most electric vehicle owners charge their cars overnight, at home. That’s less expensive, and I’m sure that’s great, but it goes to show you: if you don’t live someplace in which you have a dedicated, safe parking spot with sufficient electric service to install an at home charger, an electric vehicle is going to cost you more to operate.

    The very good people who want to push plug-in electrics on us all have garages or dedicated parking places in which they have, or could install, at home chargers. They don’t seem to realize that there are millions of people who don’t live in such places. My previous home in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, had a dedicate parking spot, but it was far away from my house:

    If you look closely, you can see my wife’s car, and in front of it, my truck, parked behind the arborvitae. It would have cost thousands to run an underground line, along with the price of a locked and secure charging unit, down to the area in which the vehicles could be charged.

    Now that I’m in eastern Kentucky, I can see plenty of homes with no secure parking places, and many of them have only 100 amp service, something which was the standard decades ago.
