It varies by location. Check the Tesla app or website for pricing.

Prices vary at each location. Some locations vary by time of day. Some locations are cheaper than EA, many are more expensive.

I've looked at the Tesla website and the prices in my area (Missouri) are pretty uniformly $0.42 per kwh. If my Mustang MME gets 3.3 miles per kwh then I'm spending $0.14 per mile traveled.

If I have a ICE getting 30 mpg and the price of gas $3.00/gallon then it costs me $0.10 per mile traveled.

Obviously, the cost of charging at a home based charger is significantly cheaper.

My contention is that for trips where you have to use a DC fast charger (Tesla or otherwise) it might be more economical and convenient (ie. no long stops for charging) to rent an ICE vehicle.

Just a thought. I'll probably continue to drive my MME because I like the other features ie. Bluecruise.

Your point has been brought up before. Your are leaving out two important factors.

1) You left your house with a full battery, at much lower cost.

2) On your trip, if you have a hotel stay, you may be able to find free charging. On our recent 4,700 mile trip, 36.6% was free.

Your 3.3 miles per kWh is too high for highway driving, as is the comparable 30mpg for a comparable vehicle IMO. I'd use 3.0 and 25mpg.

On my recent 5,300 mile trip with our Lightning, many areas were much more expensive than 42 cents. 29% was free. I spent $660.27 on charging including my home fill and my son's house, so 12.4 cents per mile. Assuming $3.15 gas on my previous truck, a 2013 F-150, and 18mpg, that would be $933.80. Cheaper to drive the EV...

In Missouri, EA seems to be 48 cents. With Pass+, that's 36 cents or 14.3% below Tesla. That's 10.9 cents. Of course you can pay Tesla $12.99 and get a discount (20%?).

Yes, you can make it more expensive to take a trip with an EV. I can also buy premium gas and make the gas vehicle more expensive.

Thanks for the link. I didn’t realize Tesla SC had different prices based upon the time of day.
SOME do. Some don't.

I haven't seen an EA charger that is time of day based, but rates vary widely across the country. In some areas, they vary by location within miles.

I compared Tesla rates with a co-worker who has a M3 at the same charger location and same time on our apps.

His was $0.15-$0.20 lower than my per kW rate charging a non Tesla.

Still, the Tesla rate is in line with my EVGo and EA chargers that I have been using so not bad for Tesla to still be competitive.

Rates vary depending on time of day with Tesla with late night / early morning being much cheaper.

The highest I have seen is 64 cents. But, with the Pass+ discount, it's not 56 cents, it's 42 cents. Breakeven is quite quick, by the 2nd charge at most.

As you know, you can pay $12.99 a month and get the same rate. Breakeven would be a few charges for a Mach-E.
