How often do you charge?
Same here in Vancouver Canada for the time-being. There is a plan to switch over to pay public charging in the next year or two.I second the notion of plug it in as much as you can . Even if it runs on ice the hybrid will only increase the gas mileage that it utilizes. I think level 2 charging is way to go for duration, cost and overall efficiency. Up here in Ontario Canada I can get 800 Kilometres on a fully filled tank of gas and a charge in the city ( 500 miles ). Not a bad gig considering 99% of all level 2 chargers are free here in Ontario.
