Hey everyone!

Do you know how much it costs to run your electric vehicle?

How did you calculate it?

It appears that my electric motorcycle costs about 1/2 cent per mile to run, comparing cost of electricity used to charge vs how many miles the cycle goes.

This means that if one gallon of gasoline costs $3, and I can go 600 miles on $3 worth of electricity, doesn't that mean that my electric motorcycle gets the financial equivelant of 600 MPG?

I know I still need to figure in the cost of eventually replacing my batteries, but still, is this a fair way to figure electric "Miles per Gallon"?.

How would you calculate it?
