GovLoop's calculator is "designed to help employees put some real hard metrics in front of their management about the benefits of teleworking.” The calculator factors in the # of days per week you plan to telework, the round-trip miles driven a day, vehicle type, and commute time. It produces your annual total cost savings, annual hours of productivity saved and productivity in terms of dollars gained, annual vehicle savings, and pounds of greenhouse gases saved.
