Tesla Gassing Up

As I was driving up to Dutch Bros go get a smoothie, I saw this. I had to laugh. o_O

I do however take the Tesla to pick up milk and such from the convenience store. It always makes me chuckle if they ask "Any fuel?" ;)

I always punch in my parents' phone number in the keypad at the register when making purchases at the local grocery store which earns fuel points. I get their stupid discounts on my purchase and the points go to someone that can actually use them for fuel purchases. I still have a couple things that burn gasoline, but my fuel purchases are so few and far between (and tend to be in small 4-5 gallon increments) that it's just not worth messing with point for the few cents that I would save on my small purchases. Give the credit to someone that can use it. I've been working on getting them to trade in their TDI Jetta for a Model 3, so if/when that happens, I'll need to find someone else to bestow my copious amount of fuel points to. :)

I sat down once and counted my various ICE's it's quite scary actually.

Mower(s), tractor, chainsaw, weed whacker, boat, sports car, etc.

I own a commercial horse barn, so I know what you mean! I would SO love to buy an electric tractor! Nothing but conversion kits out there unfortunately.

Even a lowly pressure washer is ICE powered, mostly because a 20A 120V electric plug doesn't deliver enough power for decent pressure.
