Tesla owner reveals how much they’ve saved on fuel by sharing 6-month electric bill

We’ve already seen one Tesla owner taking to X this week, rightfully bragging that they’ve avoided paying to charge their Tesla for nearly a year.

Now it appears another owner has taken to the internet to share their successful low-cost Tesla story.

Bilal Sattar has shared the costings for the last six months on X, showing how much he paid to recharge on the roughly 10,000 miles he drove.

The total cost comes to $573.55, which is a fraction of what it would’ve cost to run a comparable car the same distance – a hefty $2,392.

Sattar’s post contains screenshots directly from the Tesla app, which offers a handy comparison as a way of underlining the smart decision to switch from a gas-powered car to an EV.

But, if the truth be told, Sattar has done a good job driving that distance at such a low cost.

A quick looks at his X feed suggests that Sattar is clever with his destinations, often picking stopping points where there are free chargers.

That alone is rare, as free chargers often only act as pilots for new charging locations.

In other news, Tesla owners have run into trouble amid freezing temperatures.

Nevertheless, the real key to Sattar’s success is evident in an electric bill his shared last October, showing he actually put wattage into the grid rather than taking it out.

It appears Sattar uses solar charging to offset his energy usage or even account for it completely.

It’s another case underlining how a home solar setup can have you driving around at little to no cost, which is likely to convince plenty of people that should add panels to their home if they can.

At the end of the day, if someone offered you the chance to rack up 10,000 miles and only pay $573 for it, you’d probably snap their hand off.
