So... you drive an ICE for that one trip a month. But that doesn't
mean you have to drive the ICE 6 miles to work every other day of the
month. I don't feel guilty when I drive my 18mpg 4wd truck into the
woods to get a big load of firewood for my house. I do feel guilty
when I drive my 30mpg car to work every day. Because in the long
term, my efficient car ends up using much more gas than my truck.
And, it's the one that could be more easily replaced by an EV too.
Sure, I'd like if ALL of my transportation needs could be served by
electric vehicles charged from PV.... but first, lets do the easiest

That's my philosophy right now :)
