    Chicago - Detroit- I-94 SC Access Report

    I've driven this roundtrip 3x in 3 weeks. These were my first road trips and one thing I learned is that your timing can be impacted greatly by ingress/egress to SC - from the moment you pull onto the exit ramp until the moment you're plugging in (and the reverse) - a pretty obvious point but...

    Supercharger - St Joe, Marshall, Ann Arbor, Livonia - Snow?

    Travelling Chicago to Detroit tomorrow. Given the snows we've had over the past couple of weeks, I'm wondering whether any or all of the stalls in the I-94/96 superchargers are blocked by piles of snow left by the plows. Can anybody who has used/seen them recently comment? Thanks

    I've had my new Model S 75D for about three weeks now and I love it. We've taken it from where we live in Northeast PA to Long Island, NYC, Boston and Ohio so far.

    Fort Smith, Arkansas Supercharger

    Mehlville, MO supercharger?

    I see a Mehlville MO on the Tesla website as coming soon in 2018. Given I can't find any posts here or see it on supercharger.info, I presume this never got built. Too bad, as we maybe driving through the area and would rather not divert to St. Charles.
