    One year since purchase of used 2017 PP Advanced (5389 miles on her) from Toyota Dealer in Napa, CA. Paid $27k + tax, etc so total around $30k. A new PP was near to impossible to find within 500 miles and even then would have been more expensive even with rebate and federal tax credit.

    Usage this past year has been 20 mile roundtrip daily commute, trips round town and 1500 mile Thanksgiving trip. Mostly overnight plug in at 5cents/kWh.

    Hard to pinpoint kWh usage because EV charging not broken out in monthly bill. Est. $78 [(52wks x 5/day a week) x 30 cents] Gas station info for past year - 8454 miles, 62.5 gallons, $192 and 135 mpg.

    EV charging not broken out

    If you at least have a dedicated 120V outlet then I suggest a Kill-a-Watt. Not real expensive and will give you the information you need re. kWh usage.

    Thanks. Yes, I have a Kill-a-Watt. Just have chosen not to keep it plugged in.
