Whenever I feel like not using any gas. I use EV mode on my road or in parking lots. Its funny if someone is walking and you drive by and give them a little scare because they didn't hear you coming.

It depends on what you want to achieve!
If it is fuel economy that you are after, then use it only when you have to move the car for a short distance ( so short, that you do not want the ICE to fire, like in parking lots or to clear your driveway).
Traction battery charge is replenished by the ICE and conversion has its price (losses).
The worst is to use it first thing in the morning, ICE is cold and warm-up cycle is best done without adding unnecessary load on it.

Just cause I love when its quiet:
Every time I enter or exit my neighborhood
Every time I park

Function:
When I need to move my car a short distance, its perfect to dont even turn the motor on, just move the car
