Does Supercharging work right away on a used car?

    Considering buying a Tesla from out of state. Unlimited SC doesn't transfer with this car, but I need to drive it home right away. Will supercharging (paid or not) work on the way home? Anyone have any experience?

    More likely that it will be billed to the original owner until you do the official ownership transfer through Tesla. But you can only do that with the registration documents sent to them, and then it takes like on average a week to process. But since the original owner likely has unlimited supercharging I doubt he'd/she'd care about you supercharging under them.
