    We stopped at the Weatherford, OK Supercharger shortly after it became operational and were greeted by an enthusiastic gentlemen whose employer owns the nearby Holiday Inn and Lucille’s Roadhouse. It was the first time he had seen a Tesla charging and we probably should excuse him for calling them pumps. :biggrin:

    Superchargers are pumps.

    They are electron pumps.

    The fact that electricity is the fuel doesn't change the terminology.
