It turns out that with our detached garage, running a new electric line from the electric panel would involve challenging and substantial trenching. I'm looking into the alternative of a slight upgrade to the 120v system already in the garage. Our electrician says he could easily upgrade us to a 20 amp NEMA 5-20 outlet.
Does anyone have real-world experience with this type of outlet? I'm especially interested in your charging rate. The Tesla material says about 4 miles per hour, but I've read forums elsewhere suggesting people are getting charging rates higher than that.
I think in my situation I could probably make this work with the occasional top-off at a supercharger when I'm planning a longer trip.
