On January 1, 2012 the Saturn had 184644 miles and the KWH meter showed 3135.
Now on August 10 the mileage is 187888 and KWH meter shows 4297.
That would be 3244 miles using 1162 Kilowatt Hours. 2.791 Kilowatts per mile.

At 10¢ a Kilowatt this comes out to 2.79¢ a mile. Gasoline today at $3.50 a gallon indicates 125.4 miles to a gallon as far as energy costs go.
