First let me preface by saying I have had my MSP for 3-4 weeks and love it. Made a trip out to the north fork of Long Island, wine country, and underestimated the total mileage involved. Mind you, it was sunday night and heading back to New Jersey. Range was dropping........and dropping. Stopped at a Chargepoint station, 4 MP/H didn't help. So off we go trying to get back. Using Recargo, try to locate another place to get some juice. On a Sunday night, it just ain't gonna happen! Called Tesla Help and they suggest another Tesla owner by the name of Dan. It's now close to 10PM and I am somewhat reticent about calling, but call I did. My wife and I were welcomed with open arms, treated as if he had know us for some time. Charged up the MSP. Spent an hour with Dan, made a new friend and ultimately made it home. Learned two things....plan for the trip, and I am going to become part of Plugshare. So, if you ever find yourself in a sticky situation and in northern NJ, we'll leave the lights on for you and you can top off on my 240/40 ! My sincere thanks Dan.
