    Great analysis Trevor. I’m definitely a low mileage user so our decision was not completely down to cost logic, but we’re also mostly charging at public charging points so we’re basically paying about £70 per month “fixed fuel charge” which is only slightly more than we paid for our previous car, a 1.6 petrol Skoda Roomster.

    What we’re all hoping/expecting is that ongoing maintenance costs etc. will also be less than an equivalent ICE car moving the cost equation further in our favour. I’ve definitely noticed the lack of brake dust on the wheels (a great benefit!) and of course there are no exhaust pipes, clutches, gearboxes and other ICE complexities.

    Trevor – there appear to be two almost identical threads going which has split the comments (fossil vs. petrol in the title). Would it make sense to combine them into one?

    Actually, no, this is the original thread from March following my post about a ZOE being cheaper to buy, whereas the other thread is the recent one following my post about a ZOE being cheaper to run.

    Trevor,a consideration to take into account may be for example, when I charge Zoe in the nearest village, I have to walk around for an hour or so as its charging.During that hour I find I usually shop,even if I don’t need to,meet folk, perhaps buy them lunch,and get wet.With an ICE car 3 mins fill up and your done. Not a criticism, just an observation. I know the fuel is still free here in N.Ireland,at least until Feb,but maybe it makes more sense to charge cheaply at home overnight?
