Sorry, near Essex.
7/28/18 chargers still taped off.
Just stopped by the Superchargers at Sheetz in York and a team from Tesla was there doing a final check. They said it will be open in
the next few days.
Thanks for the update.
They're on! Only pulling 80kW, but I'm already at 80% in my MS100D.
BTW 4 of the spots are marked as supercharging/10 min general parking, and the other 4 furthest from the Sheetz entrance are marked as charging only.
It's listed on Tesla's supercharger US locations page now too:

I'm not sure why they would mark 4 spots as 10 minute general parking. Seems like that would encourage ICE parking in these spots. Any ideas on the reason for these signs?
Expect that. It's fairly standard at a Sheetz to see ICE cars parked in these spots. That's what you have to deal with when the SC is right on top of the business that it's near. In Michigan where we have most of our SC's at the Meijer we're a country mile away from the store entrance so we rarely see any ICE cars parked in them. But at the Sheetz it's a common practice. I don't think it's that big of a deal though. I mean unless the employees that work there start parking in them. Everyone else is just going in for a quick bite and then leaving.
I've been to every Tesla Supercharger in the state of Pennsylvania (well except this brand new one) and never had a problem charging at any of them. PA isn't LA...
This is in West Virginia, but also at a Sheetz... Still plenty of open stalls to charge...and they can always change the sings in the future if that becomes necessary.
Wife plugged in yesterday here. FIRST Model 3 here!
If we're claiming firsts then I'm taking the "First to Supercharge in York" title.
Thanks for the explanation! It certainly will let us spot the ICEHOLES easier! I'm still glad that Sheetz did install this Tesla Supercharger.
I'll allow it.
The Sheetz in Williamsport, PA near my college was leveled and is being rebuilt.
I can only hope the refresh includes a super charger, as it makes total sense in this location where 15 and 180 meet...
Sheetz is pretty good on twitter, I'll ask...
Three of us charging on Saturday afternoon. Plus a Black Model 3 was seen driving by a few times.
The black model 3 was me and wife
Arby's has $1.00 milkshakes... so... there's that.
I'm glad to see the Superchargers getting used. I'm scheduled to get my P3D Friday morning at Owings Mills Tesla. Can't wait!
I charged here for the first time tonight as part of my effort to avoid I-95 during Thanksgiving break. Two brief comments on this supercharger.
First, Google Maps lists it as a Destination Charger (as seen below). I've submitted an edit to have that fixed, but it threw me off briefly.
Second, getting back to I-83 can be confusing / annoying. If you leave Sheetz from the western exit, there's a little sign that tells you how to access I-83 -- looked a bit like this:
I didn't quite get what it meant at first -- it was dark and raining hard at the time, or maybe the coffee just hadn't kicked in yet -- but in hindsight I realize it meant you need to make four lefts, like this:
Hope this helps at least someone...
At least he parked in the 10 Minute Parking space.
Is the charging rate still at 120 kW or has it been increased to 150 kW? I saw it listed as both depending on what website I look.
