With our Clarity getting about 35 EV miles on a full charge in the cooler weather and electric rates here at about .20/kWh, I think it makes more sense to run the Clarity on gas. In our area we can get gas at $2.35/gallon, so it’s cheaper, with these numbers, to dispense with the charging for now. I think as more people encounter these low gas prices concurrent with high electric costs, more PHEV owners will be doing the same thing. Of course it will be a very geographical thing. What you come to realize on longer trips when running on gas, is how small the Clarity’s gas tank is.
