I just got back from my first roadtrip and created a spreadsheet to see the total cost of supercharging. As a bonus I added a line to compare gas prices and amount saved. I'm no Excel master and this is just a quick hack, feel free to change/modify/make it better and please re-post it here if you do. If you need to add lines for extra stops just "unprotect" the sheet and insert more lines.

If anyone has a better spreadsheet please post here as well.

Cool comparison but 40 MPG? Also not to mention other intagible consumables like oil and wear and tear that will cost you money in the long run. (I own/fly an airplane and those things are all taken into account when comparing overall efficiency.) Edmunds takes them into account as well when calculating TCO.

In my case, I would be lucky to get 25 MPG on my ICE (Audi Q5), which is closer to the average consumption around I would think. The gas savings will be significantly higher in that case. I think my Model 3 is at least 3 times more efficient than my ICE overall.

Thanks for sharing.

I totally agree and I was using the 40mpg number to give the absolute best case scenario for comparison. It's simple to change that figure or the cost per gallon to do you own calculations.

Currently there is no ICE car made or even conceived of the I know about that comes anywhere close to the Modle 3 in terms of efficiency, comfort, and luxury so there is truly nothing to compare it against!
