How much would it cost to charge a Tesla Model 3 in Australia?

I saw the release of the Tesla model 3 on Friday. I thought it looked amazing. I can't wait to get one. It should be about 60K AUD on road.I'd like to see some Australian based calculations? Can anyone have a go on how they would work out what a "full tank" charge would cost in Australian dollars?

@BWSS - I see you have solar panels. I'd be keen to hear some back of the napkin calculations of how long it would take using just solar energy to charge a Tesla model 3? Have you looked at electric cars?

Sounds like a good solution. I hadn't considered the government park. The Volt is a good looking car and probably more realistic being both hybrid and available today. Nice set up you're running there. It would be nice having that sort of set up in retirement.

Most Economic Heaters for the Home

HI all, Does anyone know what are the most economical heaters for a home. I'm in a rental and looking to spend about $200 but I'm nervous about the run on costs and I don't have a gas outlet. Are panel heaters the way to go, http://aglsmarterliving.com.au/product/1500w-electric-panel-heater-eph15dtw/ or should I get an oil one http://www.harveynorman.com.au/heating-cooling/heating/electric-heaters/dimplex-eco-2400w-column-heater-with-timer.html Any thoughts?
