    The other day I stopped at a gas station to wash my Model S' headlights. Went inside and bought a juice, though. Kinda feel guilty otherwise!

    The best part of this picture is not the part that an electric car is at the gas station, but the gas station prices.:tongue:

    $3.75 - $4.19

    Two days ago I pulled in to a gas station and paid $1 to add ~1psi to each tire. My wife wouldn't let me take a picture though.

    You mean those clean, tidy white piles of fun loving, cold cloud like substance that has been harassing the East Coast? Causing back problems, heart attacks.... BUT the cold weather is good for our batteries:)

    This reminds me of when I used to farm with Belgian draft horses. I had a baler that used a gas motor to power the mechanism but not the wheels. One day the little tank of gas ran out so I headed the team out onto the road, baler in tow, and drove them almost a mile to the nearest gas station. It would have made a good picture while I pulled the team up in front of the pumps, as if they would need gas! I went inside to pay for 1.5 gal and a few minutes later we were baling hay again.

    Better be careful, or they may start charging an EV fee for use of ICE station facilities. I gotta get me a bucket and a squeegee to use at home.

    Somebody took a picture of me mowing a field with a team and published it as a post card. I remember walking into a store and being surprised to see myself on the postcard rack! The title/description on the back of the card was simply "Frank and Ginette," the names of the horses. I raised several colts from Ginette and cut 50 acres of hay each year, all with horses.

    Really like the Tim Coronel Roadster video, especially when he spins the rear end around to charge it. I'll have to practice that one!
