We finished our fourth roundtrip from LA to SF yesterday and waited 1.5 hours to get our needed 20 minutes of charge at Harris Ranch. The parked Model S had been on charge for over an hour when we arrived according the couple ahead of us in the lineup of three cars. I know this will not happen again after the six chargers across the street are hooked into the grid in two weeks, but perhaps it will. We plugged into the last remaining charger in Gilroy on Sunday and there were four of us charging at Tejon yesterday with another arrival as we left. If Tesla builds 4800 cars a quarter and a large number of those are staying in California, on busy weekends we may see some waiting lines. I have been leaving a sign on our windshield when leaving the S on charge and going for a meal that reads: "If you are waiting to charge call my cell #########."
Love my car, have had 7000 miles of troublefree driving and enjoy visiting with other Model S lovers at the Superchargers. Perhaps we could all try to help each other out in this way. A little courtesy among the pioneers of cross country BEV driving would be great.
