This week I put 691 miles on my Mach-E. I charged it to 100% at home before I started.

First let's look at the EPA estimates.
AWD ER 270 Rated

Home charging 7 KW L2 rate is $0.05 per kWh
88 X $0.005 = $4.40 (0 to 100%)
$4.40 / 270 = $0.016 per mile.

On the road my rate is $0.31 per kWh (EA Pass+).
88 x $0.31 = $27.20 (0 to 80%)

$27.20 / 270 = $0.10 per mile.


Now the real results and costs.

Route 1 - 218 miles. Arrived 26% - Fast Charge from 26% to 80% ($17.09)

Route 2 - 50 miles. Arrived 75% - No charging.

Route 3 - 107 miles. Arrived 34% - Fast Charge from 34% to 80% ($11.18)

Route 4 - 153 miles. Arrived 20% - L2 charged from 20% to 100%. ($3.52)

Route 5 - 81.5 - Arrived 60% No charging.

Route 6 81.5 - Arrived 30% - L2 charged from 30% to 95% ($2.80)

Total Miles: 691
Combine average speed: 68 MPH
Total cost: $34.59
Cost per mile average: $0.05

I haven't taken the time to break it down per mile like you did, very good info.

I live in TN and bought the car from a dealer in Iowa. Drove my trade up at a cost of $151 in gas to cover 675 miles+/-
Drove home using DCFC 3 times for a total of $47+/-
If I wasn't sold before that trip home sure did the trick

I make that as 220 kw used (250% * 88) to go 691 miles, so about 3.15 mi/kwh.
You didn't mention how fast you drove, but that's a computed 276 mi range - pretty good!

I updated the post with my average speed.
