    The Tesla supercharger is the thing beat...I know, I've said that before.

    I'll give you an example...taking the road trip to Belton TX on Friday.

    we will use the supercharger(s) along the way. We will stop at Buccee's. for the time it will take me to recharge the 100 miles or so, it will take me the same amount of time to go into the store, bio break, get a drink, a kolache & a bag of spicy pork rinds.

    what other car can do that in ~15minutes?

    I think the buccee's chargers are the new ones - we will see 500 miles per hour charge rates.

    & whip ass on a McLaren 720s.

    took the Plaid to see Michael Buble last night.

    continues to amaze me.

    The Toyota center's parking garage is called Tundra lot. (see how this all ties together)

    well, as we entered it, i feared we would scrape due to weird inclines...nope...the suspension auto raised.


    the new status bar downloaded last night too....very nice.

    listen up...EV trucks are not meant to do truck things.

    not yet.

    not in the next 5 years.

    the Semi's will be worse to the extent they will be a joke. the Gov will step in and subsidize the semi's. have you seen the MEGAwatt chargers? what kind of unicorn dust powers those?

    I still think hydrogen is the way to go for vehicles and trucks especially.

    it takes too much energy to source the hydrogen.

    And a few gallons of water per gallon as well. We have a lot of ethanol plants around here and our aquifers are being drawn down to dangerously low levels. IDK if that is because all the farmers are putting in tiling to shoot the water down to the rivers and not soak down? It is using a lot of other resources to make it for sure.

    Road trip = 575 miles. Cost us $52

    Using supercharging

    And we punched it to 125 on i130. That’s the speedway between Austin and San Antonio Avg traffic speed is 90

    I have never accelerated that fast from an on ramp.

    Wife sent a picture of the dash to the kids. (Both in college)

    it was rock steady and butter smooth

    we grow old, we don’t grow up.

    Not bad. I’m at .09/kWh

    Not sure what the charge is at nearby SC’a unless I check it on my car as the app only shows location / availability

    Of course. It's not like electric was ever going to actually be cheaper. It just had to be mandated and and rammed down our throats and the "lower cost" was the lube. It's worn off and now we get the full picture. Cars so expensive the average Joe can't afford it, and "fuel" being as expensive as ever. Where'd I put my pearls for clutching?
