Has anyone calculated the total cost of going all-electric or hybrid -- the special charger, electricity used, battery maintence/replacement over time, and likely service panel wiring upgrade? Even after the initial investment, there will be ongoing costs to be factored in that is (seemingly) being glossed over.
I've never seen anything like what you ask for, but my friend the car mechanic had to do practically nothing to his first Prius. I know he was dying to tear into that sucker, but he never had a reason to. Maybe his new one will give him a chance to work on it.
