    It's actually more like 50 sites when you count the ex-Masters sites that they have separated out for some reason. https://www.home-co.com.au/

    The Ampol/Chevron license agreement would mean every logo has to be changed pretty much by now. That's why the whole EG/Woolworths Petrol vs Ampol lawsuit happened. EG thought they would be free to keep using Caltex when Ampol tried to arrange the logo change.

    Tesla Hits Pedestrian ‘On Autopilot’ Melbourne Australia.

    It was pretty much guaranteed when the driver invoked the "autopilot was driving" attempted defense.

    That would be "The Bend", basically SA's biggest motorsport complex :-)

    I think that all stemmed from it being a Caltex site in the development application. Evie was working with Caltex on a couple of sites at the same time so people assumed it must be them.

    Supercharger - Horsham (VIC)

    Yep, it's the back wall of the Woolworths, on Google maps there are bushes there and no fence. The loading dock roof gives it away.

    Woah, that came out of nowhere! Quick Google maps, that looks like the side wall of Woolworths.

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    One of their first stations and you have to wonder, if it's so good, why didn't they repeat it?

    I won’t be down there for a bit, but once the truck is gone will be a lot easier to figure out

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    It's not a bad spot really. No, it's not on the freeway, but it's already pretty common to see Teslas in Mornington, Mt Eliza and Mt Martha. Heck, the Nepean Highway probably sees more than the freeway. They're less likely to get ICEd there over summer than they would be closer to the centre...

    I reckon you’ve found it. I haven’t found anything closer to Frankston.

    Superchargers in Australia

    Just a followup from me on Frankston/Baxter. I did another drive around of Baxter and there's no sign of the chargers anywhere. Even took a trip to the service centres and there is no sign of anything there. Someone want to send those TOCA detectives down here? :)

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    So I went for a little drive this morning, unfortunately I didn't find them. I can say however, that the three sites @Chuq pointed out have nothing there right now. The Baxter Tavern looks like a ghost town (I'm wondering if it will even reopen post lockdown) Woolworths has some...

    Just below the bottom of that shot is two freeway service centres that I still wouldn't rule out.

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    I’ve been there several times, didn’t see anything like a supercharger. I’m thinking it’s closer to Baxter now but with the restrictions haven’t been down there to look.

    Supercharger - Devonport, Tas

    Well they certainly got the position right, that will be a busy site with people both coming and going! No one on the boat will miss the lit up Tesla logos.

    Supercharger - Geelong, Vic

    It's like the Spirit of Tas, within a week of it's move the locals will have it up on blocks in their front yards.

    Written Off Model 3 - Backstory?

    Would have to be battery related to be written off like that, you’d think?

    Supercharger - Devonport, Tas

    Interesting.. I'd have thought if you charged in Melbourne then there would be little need for one as soon as you get off the boat. My guess is a second will be in the Hobart area then.

    Instead of Geelong or as well as?

    Weird that Yea is a Q2 and we have photos of it being finished off, yet the Q1 sites seem to be no shows still.

    Just because the chargers are in place doesn't mean the power is connected.

    A Sydneysider thinking of a holiday in Tasmania

    The thing that often gets newbies on the boat is that it turns around. you drive on one end and off the other. So you drive on thinking your on one side and get totally confused when you head down in the morning and go to the wrong side. I’ve seen it happen a ridiculous number of times.

    Supercharger - Yea, VIC

    Quick glance at Google Maps and I think it's behind the Foodworks.

    Evie EV charging networks

    Evie has been working with Caltex / Ampol. Doesn't mean they'll automatically go here though as EG is a separate company (formerly Woolworths Petrol) that just has a supply agreement with them.

    Superchargers in Australia

    Just a quick check. Someone has added a Supercharger to Openstreetmap in Lakes Entrance at the Central Hotel. I'm pretty sure it's only a destination charger but before I change it I thought i'd check if maybe a Supercharger could have popped up down there?

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    Is there any way to identify the person doing that? I was at that chemist warehouse the other day and no chargers.

    Tesla 2021 Australian Supercharger Rollout

    Frankston, VIC (Baxter) Ok, so not Karingal but more likely the BP service centres at Baxter?

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    My gut feeling is still on Karingal. The new carpark is looking close to done but I couldn't see inside too well from the road.

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    I just did a drive around that carpark and there is no indication of any works there.

    Ovens site management encouraging ICEing of Supercharger stalls

    If the site was sold and the new owner doesn't have an agreement with Telsa he can do what he likes with his site. It's on Tesla to either come to a rental agreement for the spots or pull them out. If Tesla already has a fixed lease on those spots then they need to enforce it. Either way...

    NRMA fast charging network

    Considering there is an Ausgrid depot and substation within 300 meters of the Ourimbah freeway interchange I'm sure they could run a lead there.

    Passed the Mulgrave / Dandenong site today and the only change there is the weeds are longer.

    Looks like it was a single charger in Noosaville, now on their website. 15 days to the next one.

    Evie EV charging networks

    According to the Evie website's network page, a new site was supposed to open at the end of last week. I'm guessing Dandenong has been held up by the lockdown so was it Bella Vista?
  44. L

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    I was there a week or so back, no sign of the chargers at Karingal. The shopping centre has grown a lot though, the new carpark and supermarket on top of it is looking far more complete.

    Do you expect McDonalds to feed that family if they can't pay too? edit, ok, better example: If a servo turns it's pumps off for an outage, do you expect free fuel?

    I read something about when they did the initial tests before construction it was all good, but between then and commissioning a new building was built between the tower and the chargers. Therefore the signal is less than expected.

    Supercharger - Mornington, Vic

    I'm starting to think you're right. I went past there too and it's changed to the same Probuild signage as the rest of the centre. Plus there's a fire hydrant in the spots now. Nowhere else there looks right either, even the new car parking opened has no signs of charging infrastructure...

    Looks like Townsville did indeed open yesterday according to Plugshare. Interesting it's at a Puma site, rather than Caltex. Probably why they won't make as much of a fuss about it. Caltex/Ampol wouldn't be thrilled about that.
