thinking of buying a new car. Priorities are : 1) green (fuel efficient) 2) safe 3) can seat 4-5 4) ideally will hold an 8-9 foot surfboard inside (not essential) 5) I drive about 30 miles a day Amongst other options in looking at the new prius plug-in, how does one really calculate per mile costs? My concern is that in Hawaii, where electricity costs are through the roof, the savings accrued through plug in option are minimal and the costs not minor. What other vehicles would one look into? I have the Hyundai Elantra, Fit, regular prius
