    Sometimes it seems someone at Tesla is TRYING to pick the worst possible locations for Superchargers. This location is a traffic nightmare, that Wawa can get extremely busy and the intersection (HW 1 and Rhode Island) is not for the faint of heart. I'd be willing to bet that whoever made this decision has never actually been to the site.

    Why not the Ikea???

    Because ikea doesn’t partner with Tesla.

    Yeah, but the Holiday Inn with a really big parking lot next to it does, or at least did.

    Any chance this is going in the parking lot behind Sardi's? The back part doesn't get much use and property records appear to indicate this is a part of the Wawa property. See SDAT: Real Property Search

    I can't see where they would put 8 stalls anywhere near the Wawa building.

    I know old thread but this location has gotten worse. It was bad before but it’s now amazingly busy. It is hard to park, often people waiting for gas. People towing stuff blocking regular movement of traffic. IKEA or nearby has huge amounts of space.
