Interesting. Only found one person who (at least admitted to) driving an electric (Ringer, Prius). I am considering one in a few years. I know range was an issue but many seem a lot better. Need to be mindful of what to drive so I can feel relatively comfortable parking it on the Westside (Oahu).

The Prius I drive is a battery-assist vehicle. It is primarily gas-driven, with the battery being recharged by braking and deceleration and when the motor is running. There are no range issues; with a full 10 gallon tank fill up it will go for 500 miles. Bottom line is that you get 50 mpg with a decently large interior space hatchback that is extremely reliable. That is all I need in my life from a car right now.

1966 big block. For gas mileage, I ride in my wife's Prius. For camping, picked up a 2017 Fuse (joy returned from Silver City, NM for a shake-down cruise. Averaged 15.6 mpg diesel. Diesel in NM and AZ averaged $2.88. California... fvcked.

My Chevy is set up for four surfers. Triplets plus dad.
Gas mileage sucks. But accommodations are nice.
We have the hot water jugs and a Coleman stove for a quick
breakfast and coffee. It's simple , easy to use and surf worthy .

My buddy paid $77,000.00 for a RV and still borrows
Shit from me and the boys on our Chevy. Home Depot, Honda
generator, and a Tommy Bahama umbrella . We go . I just need to have
my rotors turned on my brakes. Uhgggg

I and my tundra hit a deer (bad 4me; worse 4deer) so while it was being fixed I got an Ford F-150 rental
which seemed quite cheap vehicle-wise and thus cemented my affection for Toyota.

I drive a hard bargain.

Actually I don't.

Had a 2010 Prius bought used, highest tier at the time (Leather, NAV, heated seats, audio) pretty nice car for a tin can. 50MPG regularly, was a great urban surf car for SoCal that easily fit the boards and family. Bulletproof reliability, cheap to maintain and spare parts are easy to come by. let it go because it was coming up on 200K miles and didn't want to drop the cash to get the drive battery replaced.

F150 SuperCrew 4x4 for travel, snow trips, and dirt bikes, etc.

Tesla for around town.

After driving an all electric I will never own a gas powered car ever again, but will always have a truck first, so whatever works for you.
