Re: Electric Vehicle Charging Station
I was interested in the kwh to mpg conversions -- I'm glad people posted some up!
For what its worth (and this was from Jan 2011) I paid the following in nyc.
8.9744¢/kwh supply charge
9.8645¢/kwh delivery charge
It works out to about 19.5166¢/kwh not including the fixed monthly fees.

Being in the electrical business I hate to say this, but many times an electric car or plugin hybrid just doesn't make sense. A Honda Civic can get 40+ MPG. A Passat TDI easily gets over 40 MPG. No plugging in. No massive (toxic) battery packs. No government subsidies required.
Now if you live somewhere where electricity is dirt cheap, that's another story.
Although, with WW3 about to break out, and gas prices fluctuating wildly - who knows?
If someone refers to herself / himself as a "guru", they probably aren't.
