I just picked up my New Fusion Hybrid Energi Titanium and I LOVE IT, What a great Car! I have been charging it with the 110 volt transformer that came with the car. Does anyone know what the power usage will be for an 8 hour charge with a 110 volt charger, I am thinking it will give me about 25 miles of driving on EV mode. that would be about 6/10 of a gallon based on 41 mpg or lets say $2.00 of gas. I wonder if it cost more then that for an 8 hour charge?.

My electric company is DWP, (Dept of water and power) 110 volts for 8 hour charging = $s

I wont get another bill for 2 months, so I dont want to wait for a shocker : )

Asking that question wont help any unless you say how much you pay per KWh.

Roughly 7.3 kWh if you start with a depleted hybrid battery, and it takes close to 6 hours to charge.

The charger will stop drawing power once your HVB is full. It doesn't matter if the car is plugged in for 7 hours or 27 hours, it will draw approximately the same electricity. There will be some small power draw after the HVB is full, but that electricity either comes from the wall or else it uses up some battery. On the C-Max Energi Forum some users have calculated that you can take the dash display of kW used and multiply by 1.33 to get an approximation of the electricity you paid for out of the wall.
