    Do you guys think the HKD3 a minute for Supercharging for new Teslas will mean our existing Teslas are now worth more on the second hand market?

    Until I have a home / workplace charger, I will keep my life-long free supercharging car, otherwise the rise in second hand price will not cover my own supercharging cost, which is more than $90 per hour (Lowest rate @ $1.5 x 60 min)

    =========================================
    And I am more interested in one of the FAQs:

    A non-Tesla car is parked in a Supercharger stall, what should I do?
    Most Supercharger stalls are reserved for Tesla charging but some stalls allow for time restricted general parking. Please be aware of stall signage and if a non-Tesla vehicle is blocking a reserved Supercharger stall, please notify us at (877) 798-3752 (international phone numbers).​

    Although it rarely happens if at all, are they really ready to do something about a non-Tesla vehicle blocking a reserved Supercharger stall?

    While not as quick as SC, destination chargers are a possible alternative

    Tesla is only leasing the spaces that SC's are built on.
    To get someone to move you have to contact the property management.
    Oh the things I would be tempted to do if I ever found myself inconvenienced misuse of an SC (by an ICE or a Tesla).

    Destination chargers at convenient places are rather full nowadays, I can't imagine what would happen when new model S with limited free supercharging credits arrive...

    true :D
