Time to brag about the air conditioning

Looks hot outside. I’ll use my phone to remotely check the temperature in the car…


Wow. Let’s start the air conditioning. By the time I get to the car, it should be fine… And it was.


42km = 7.5kWh = 52.5 cents

52.5 cents is what it’s costing me to drive to work and come back home every day.

Pretty impressive right? Keep in mind that I was not using the air conditioning nor the heating system. Not bad if you think about it some more, 52.5 cents to move a 4,647 lb (2,108 kg) vehicle for 42km.

Half of the commute is on highway, the other half is stop and go in downtown Ottawa.
