Although I've only owned my PHEV sonce October I also do this and can't see me changing any time soon. I installed an outdoor 13A weatherproof socket on a wall near where I park which is switched on and off remotely so no-one can steal my electric when I'm out. A 5 hour or so overnight charge is fine for me, and even if I do run about a bit during the day when I'm at home the top-ups available from the 10A charger are still useful.
If I use a bit of unleaded occassionally it would be very rare unless on a longer journey which is well beyond EV range anyway. So I can easily justify my decision not to install a 16A charger (even with the grant available, which would still cost me £150..) when I can do it myself with standard components; Outdoor weatherproof socket, 10m of required cable, clips, and a breaker - total cost less than £35 and a few hours work, most of which was drilling a hole through some very tough brickwork!
