Interesting but these kinds of comparisons are only vaguely useful. They don't take into account how often the user is actually charging, e.g. Octopus Go would work out insanely cheap for someone doing 3 full charges a week. It would not be when charging once a month (e.g. during lockdown). Also, knowing the "pence per mile" cost for charging the car is interesting but changing tariffs doesn't just affect that value. You should really be comparing the total electricity cost of all of your usage. For example, getting 2p/mile in the car sounds great, but it's bad if at the same time you're paying 50% more for all of your other electricity use.

Home usage is included too, so you can see if the cheapest to charge is reasonable for your normal usage (and the combined one).
True but the numbers in the table just don't mean much by themselves. It'd be a much more useful comparison tool if you asked for annual kWh consumption sans EV, annual mileage, and percentage of charging done at home.
