Never seen it but looks like a low oil indicator?
It looks like the Symbol for a Pharmacy. Are you sure it is not just a map icon like the blue gas station one that is showing up?
Is it still there if you exit the map or move your car 20 feet?
Looks like a map symbol. I have the opposite problem, thinking there's some interesting Tesla location coming up with the menu bar's T.
I think you might be right about Pharmacy. I'll see if it shows up again next time I drive by CVS.
I love driving by all the people in line for gas at Costco.
You need to have a Tesla meetup there just to troll.
Seriously those people be crazy. I’ll pay 6 per gallon rather than gas at Costco.
Feels you can supercharge faster than get Costco gas.
It would be the Costco pharmacy.
It’s the gas light. This means you have anywhere from 10-30 miles remaining until you need to stop for gas.
In the years BT (before Tesla), I would turn left at a certain South Bay intersection after work and wait in line for 20-25 minutes to get gas at a Costco along with a hundred other stupid people.
Now, I turn right at the same intersection, charge at an SC, and either have an excellent spinach salad at the host property or use their WiFi to return emails or make calls. A half hour later I’m charged and have less to do.
It's usually 30 minutes on average to get gas at Costco during the weekend. I can charge my Model 3 over 200 miles in that time at the SC.
Is costco gas that much cheaper?....or is it that people's time not worth the extra pennies to go elsewhere.
It is a quite a lot cheaper. Also many people get it after finishing their shopping.
In my city its not much cheaper, but when we were in vacation in Kauai it was like 2/3rds the price of all other gas stations and was insanely busy.
50 cents saving per gallon on Costco premium I think is the average.
You would have to pump a lot of gas and then get your car down to E to gain $7-$12.
It would take project planning and banking on favorable conditions to make the endeavor worth it.
The only "coupon" worth it is if you could schedule a newborn to stand in line for the Build a Bear thingy.
1/3rd of 1 penny for the pay your age promotion!
At $0.50/gallon saved per a post upthread, plus another 4% of the gross due to using the business Costco credit card...
40 gallons/week... average $3.50/gallon...
So yeah, Costco saved or earned $1280/yr, which cost 50 hours in line to achieve. That’s about $25/hour, isn’t it.
Hardly pennies, but people rarely think it through.
Now I spend zero hours in line and breathe zero fumes (other than the half pack a day resulting from living in LA County).
A friend whose vehicle also requires premium gas did better than the above numbers, given that his gas-guzzling SUV probably takes as much fuel per fill-up as I used all week back then (with an equally heinous commute at the time).
No Costco's around hear...so I did not know...but yeah no need for gas is the best!
I would say you spend 0 time with an EV. Plugging and unplugging takes seconds off your life each time. Seconds!!!
