This is very practical and cost effective. Even with the recession and low gas prices of $1.50 this pays off fast. It's 8 cents of my solar electric vs 1 gallon of 1.50 imported subsidized gas that pollutes.

It's so easy to ride I don't even turn it on some days and have the electric just in case. This keeps me warmer in the cool winter here in Arizona (30-40's) in the morning. It can also keep you from over heating in summer (100F+).

I also have a lithium power PHEV 05 prius take care of all of our needs.
