While most people drive past petrol stations with a sigh hoping prices will drop, Stephen Hobo-Tuck cruises by with a smirk.

The New Plymouth man drives an electric Nissan Leaf and so has spent nothing on petrol for two and a half years. In that time the car has cost him just $1500 to run, and that includes a new set of tyres.

This is significantly less than the average cost of running a car in New Zealand, which NZ Transport Agency says hits $1,994 a year.

Hobo-Tuck is so passionate about saving money and the environment by driving electric cars he’s organised Electricarna for the third year in a row.
