Hello everyone, As the subject says, Im thinking about buying an advanced model pip. I was hoping you guys could help me decide if its a good fit for me. I currently own a 08 loaded Prius with 81k on it. I got a great deal on it and I have been very happy with it. I've just been itching for a plug in. I live in Ithaca, NY. We tend to get a bit of snow (except for last year) and we have A LOT of hills. When I try, I get around 52 mpg with my 08. Lately I havent been trying as much so Ive been around 46-48. I take a lot of weekend road trips. I just returned from a 10 hour trip to Maine and I usually go to Rochester (about 2 hours) once a month. Other than that I dont have to drive very far. I currently live 6 minutes away from work. I live downtown and have to drive up the hill to work then down the hill home. The terrain isnt very good for mpg's but I have made due. Next month however I will be moving to a new apartment in which I will be able to walk to work. Which leads me to another question; I can use a garage at my apartment complex to store the pip. Inside the garage is a light and an outlet. Would there be any reason I couldnt plug my pip into the outlet in the garage? I have read that the car needs a dedicated 15 amp breaker. Unfortunately I wont have that. I will be sharing the same circuit as about 20 other garages all of which have light bulbs in them. If it would work, I wouldnt be paying anything for my electric power AND most of my daily commuting will be less than 11 miles meaning I should be able to do it on EV only. What do you guys think? Is it worth it?
