How Much Can You Save With An Electric Car?
There’s finally a bit more transparency into the miles per gallon equivalent of the first mainstream electric vehicles on the roads (the Nissan LEAF and GM’s Volt) now that the EPA has officially rated the MPG of these cars in recent weeks. But the next step is for potential buyers to figure out if they’d actually save money on the fuel costs of EVs for their personal commutes. Now you can do that with a simple calculation via a new Facebook app.

The folks behind the Cost to Drive (C2G) website, which calculates how much it would cost you in gas to drive a certain distance, have launched the Facebook application the Commuting Calculator. The calculator prompts the user to enter information about their daily commute, the model/make of their current internal combustion car, and the days per week that they drive to work. With one click, users can see how much they’d save in daily, weekly, and yearly fuel costs versus using electricity and an EV.
