    What I find interesting is the apparent need to have three kinds of "gas"... Visions of 87, 89, and 91 octane (er, kw?).

    On this side of the pond, it's CHAdeMO and CCS. What are the three over there?

    I have no idea.

    I seriously thought the one in the red box was a pay phone.

    But you are correct, if gas company's do anything, I'm sure they will try to sell you some premium electrons.

    The thing in the red box looks like a European Tesla ChaDeMo adapter connected to a security cable.

    With scrubbing detergent to keep your car's battery clean and working like new! After only six recharges using their detergelectrons, you will notice big improvements in your car's range!

    I think y'all are mostly making fun of the poor eletrek.co guy who put together the Shell/i3 graphic. =P

    Strongly suspect the actual items to be pay-for CHAdeMO and CCS, most likely on Stations that provide food as well.
