A cleaner way to drive

Car registered

After the 4th trip to the DMV, I finally have the MR2 registered as an EV through 2012! I’ve also applied for a clean air vehicle sticker (the white one, they stopped giving out the yellow ones for the hybrids a while ago). Next challenge is to get some insurance for the car. My agent at State Farm gave me temporary coverage of 1 month to get my registration and to find a company that will insure it for the long run.

So far, I’ve got about 500 miles on the car as an electric. I’m now tracking my gas savings here.

    So when will you break even?

      Assuming gas prices stay at around $4/gallon and this EV replacing my fuel efficient Corolla at 32mi/gal. I’m estimating that I will have saved $24,000 in gas money in 10 years. (The lithium iron phosphate should last 10 years). What car do you know pays you back for driving it.

    Excellent…you should be able to get your wife something real nice for allowing you to spend 3 years time on converting this car :-p
