    i live in a condo with no charging station. However at the car washing bay there is an outlet. Can one plug in the Tesla while washing the car?

    Sure, do whatever you want. But are you really desperate enough for 4 miles of range to go through the hassle while you wash your car for an hour?

    This answers my question about charging in the rain (if you have too) How about Supercharging?

    I’ve supercharged numerous times in Texas springtime thunderstorms so intense that I couldn’t see ten feet through the driving rain.

    120V plug just ain't going to worth plugging into for an hour.
