    Considering driving D70 from NC(Burlington) to MI(O'Fallon- STL suburb) next week with the family. Took a look at the supercharger map and it looks doable. However, I'm a bit concerned about the cold weather and driving conditions draining the battery. Anyone tried this route? Any do and don'ts, words of wisdom much appreciated.

    EV trip planner seems to think it's ok. I'd take your UMC along in case you need it.
