using the blue tesla charge cable

Hi Everyone,
I picked up my model 3 yesterday.
When I got home I tested to see if my andersen charger would reach the car from our two parking options. Even though I ordered the 8m tethered cable when I ordered my charger I'm still about 1.5 meters short in one of the parking options which is a bit of a pain. Can I use the blue tesla cable that came with the car as an extension?
"of a certain age"
You mean old?
