    This has become my third favorite aspect of my Model 3, acceleration is, of course, the first, and no gas stations is second.
    ICE cars turn chemical energy into mechanical energy, with some lo$$ in the conversion. Coming to a stop, I see all these brake lights, taking a couple of tons in motion - all of that potential energy and converting it to heat while it wears the brake$. It puts a grin on my face that a good bit of mine is feeding the battery! :cool:

    The other thing that now sticks out to me in traffic is that I can't look at a tailpipe without seeing the arsehole of an engine.
