    I drove the Prime 215 miles today, mostly with A/C on during a 90F day

    150 mpg ! My cost: $4 of petrol
    6.2+6.2+4.2+4.6 = 21.2 kWh from the meter. My cost: 30 cents of electricity
    Total cost per mile: 2 cents

    That is just crazy good efficiency. If I figure 4.7 miles/kWh from the meter then
    158 MPGe for the EV miles and
    77 MPG for the HV miles

    I started out with a full charge;
    Next town over I took a break to stretch and catch on on emails while I plugged in
    At noon I stopped to eat and charge
    At home I recharged during the 3 hours I had before heading out again

    Was that all L2 charging and were some of the charging stations free? Great run.
