    Buying a Nissan leaf is one of the smarter moves we’ve made!

    This is getting better – still don’t see a lot of options for charging while traveling.

    How many gallons of gas does the car hold? It is not clear if one drives several hundred miles does the car hold enough gasoline to support the trip. Otherwise, an electric that takes one 30 miles is a great idea. All the little errands one has to run can be done with the electric engine.

    Great story. We have had a EV for over six years as our only car, renting a car when we go out of town. We love the almost zero maintenance and a clean garage with no gas odors or oil spills.

    30 miles per charge is not very much.

    Thanks Hellmers! Emissions is a big deal in this time in our children’s lives. Also the maintenance is minimal. What a great way to go green. Glad to know you care about what we breath! Thanks for sharing your family with all of us!

    I think these EV are great for driving around town – but I am still concerned about long distance driving.

    Love our Chrysler Pachy. Getting the best mpg is like playing a video game.

    I love the Prius, too! My version is 2004 and still running. An EV version would be fantastic, and even more fuel-efficient and climate-hopeful and all the good forward-looking things.

    I never even considered it having oil changes! That’s so awesome… hundreds of dollars in savings each year!
