Supercharger next to full service restaurant

I was recently in upstate New York and had to make a supercharger stop with 14% left. It’s a small station was only 6 stalls. When I am 30 minutes away it was showing 4 available. When I arrived at 5:30 they’re only 2 stalls available. 5 minutes later all stalls are full and there are 4 Tesla’s waiting.

I spent 30 mins there and when I left all other 5 stalls are still occupied, and there are still 4 waiting. This supercharger station is right on the parking lot of a full service restaurant. I guess many people choose to stop here to charge and eat, which could easily take 45-60 mins and the car will be charged to 100% without fees.

So here’s my advise to my fellow drivers: Be careful if you try to use superchargers next to full service restaurant at dinner hours.

Actually I was trying to say: be prepared to wait if the supercharger you are going to is next to a restaurant, and you are going at dinner hours. It will be very popular even if it’s a small town as people can easily park, charge, and have a full meal.

Yet another reason V3 superchargers are superior. You'll never have to deal with people eating for an hour while charging, because charging only take 20 minutes. :D

Err... takes 20 minutes. That will teach me to use my MacBook Pro from work with its broken butterfly-style 'S' key (and 'D' key, and 'G' key, and 'Command' Key).

You can edit your post too. Just click edit below it and make your corrections / additions :)

Only if you do it quickly. I don't know what the time limit is, but by the time I noticed the typo, I could no longer edit the post, hence the comment.

Yup. Unfortunately, my work laptop isn't up for refresh until March, so unless I ask for an exception, I'll have to put up with the occasional lost keystroke. But I am really, really, really looking forward to the refresh so I can throw this thing off a third-floor balcony^W^W^H^W^W^W^W^W^W turn this thing back in for recycling.

There I was, working on the report on my balcony and a bird landed on my laptop. Knocked it right over the edge.:( Please order me a 16" MBP replacement!
