How much gasoline would a PHEV use?
According to the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), half the cars on United States roads are driven 25 miles a day or less. Consequently, a plug-in with a 25-mile, all-electric range could eliminate gasoline use in the daily commute of tens of millions of Americans. Furthermore, drivers of PHEVs would only need to fill up with fuel a few times a year, versus the current 24 to 36 times a year on average.
