    Just answer the question instead of deflecting and running away.

    I'm not making this up. I've actually experienced exactly this on an actual driving drip - many times.

    @Lee Jay please go onto Tesla's Supercharger site and give me some examples of some that don't have restrooms near them (less than 1000 feet) . If you can find 5 in the whole country I will concede.

    I didn't say restrooms, I said restaurants. Also, when you have little kids, you often need to stop for restrooms at more convenient locations like rest stops (that's what they are for, you know). I've never seen a supercharger at a rest stop.

    I ate at Dick's in Las Vegas, NM. Look where the Supercharger is:

    And before you say, "just eat somewhere else", some people have special dietary needs that can't be met by any random fast food joint, and if they are not met can result in months of sickness and/or death.

    This is your response to a 44 minute walk, each way, or months of sickness or death.

    What a nice person.

    Yep, that's what I meant by that. You know me so well.

    we won't until we have to, that is the nature of things. but some of us have begun before that, just not enough to make a difference

    Here, E-0 is about $1.00 per gallon more expensive than E-10.

    The price of gas wouldn't matter, I'd still use EV. The only thing that would make me not use EV would be that the cost of electricity got too high or it not being available.

    In South Carolina there are no tesla maintenance shops and there's no way I'd buy a car I couldn't get a warrantee fix for... The charging stations are a major problem too..

    Dang, we hover closer to 25-35 cents higher for E0. I know it's very hard to get in most northern states. We've been fortunate in that regard.

    I was actually surprised at the price since I hardly every notice it anymore running EV. I've not put any gas in the Prime in over 2,200 miles but I had to fill up our Camry Hybrid before the holiday.

    I have used E-0 for my 1970 Farmall tractor for the past year. It has the old carburetor, coil, points engine from the 1950s.
    A year ago the price difference was about 50 cents.
    I also use E-0 for my 2-cycle chainsaws since that is recommended by the manufacturer.

    Find me an EV version of this. (not mine)[​IMG]

    If that isn't what you meant, then say what you mean. An emoji is the way 4 year Olds communicate with other 4 year olds.

    Nice tractor. Amazing what you can do with one. No EV versions though. It has almost as much low end torque though.;)

    Yeah, I use E0 in the boat and all my small engine stuff. I also use E0 in the Prime and our Camry hybrid because they can take advantage of the extra BTU's and get better mpg's vs the (local) E0 vs E10 price difference. My 4Runner can get enough extra MPG from the E0 so I just run the cheaper E10 in it.
