Side note. I have come to realize I should keep it charged out of responsibility to others. A few months ago, an old friend called me at work and asked me to visit his disabled aunt who was in a hospital about 30 miles away. Fortunately I had charged. I realized it could have been one of my daughters calling.
You may want to experiment with charge timers
A pretty good estimate is available with minor arithmetic, you just have to know the kW rating of the EVSE and the kWh used per day.
Then time to charge in hours is kWh/kW
If 16.5 miles a day takes 4 kWh;
An L2 at 240 v EVSE run at 16 amps charges the battery at 0.240*16= 3.8 kW. Figure 90% makes it to the battery
Then it takes about 75 minutes a day.
