For the supercharger stall I used for my roadtrip destination this October when I brushed my teeth, stretched and went for a quick nap while supercharging after our Montreal-New York road trip.
The 6 Taco bell soft tacos were pretty hard to digest at night but the subway breakfast sandwiches were awesome in the morning at the 24/7 Wallmart store in the same parking.
I feel personally affected by this like if my own home caught on fire and I didn't know why…
I’ve only supercharged twice in the 13 months I’ve had my Model 3. The first time I did it was near my house in Connecticut, just to try it out. The second time was at a WaWa in Parsippany, NJ, killing time while my wife was working out there. Strangely, the only other Teslas I saw during the 20 minutes I was there were Model Ses.
I’m sorry to hear that a supercharger at the Parsippany station caught on fire. Hopefully, we’ll find out what caused the fire.
Oh my! This was my local supercharger. Infact I just looked at my charging screen before reading this. The logo indicated no availability and I was wondering whether it meant all occupied.
Good god, does anyone ever proof-read anymore?
"This Tesla Supercharger fire is already all over the news and it will certainly help deter people to go electric.
Yet, if that’s really people’s worry, they should also consider the risk of gas stations."
Are these markets where you go when you're thirsty?
Gasoline is flammable too? Wait, what?
>>> Gasoline is flammable too? Wait, what?
Don’t worry; that’s fake news. If it were true, there’d be car fires every day, and gas station fires too. I never see them on the news, so there must not be any.
Not to worry. Gasoline is inflammable. That means it can't catch fire, right?
In the early 1900s there were more electric cars than gas cars.
The muffler and starter motor were produced, and BigOil got behind the industry.
Had Electricity interests prevailed, we would now be living wit 120 years of EV development., Where might we be?
Thos UFO sightings come to mind.
How much have we lost because of fossil fiuels, mufflers and staryter motors?
sorry about the spelling stakes...
It really is pretty amazing how well we manage gasoline. With some of the drivers we encounter, it's a miracle.
Not a supercharger fire, electric utility company transformer fire next to superchargers.
Not really fake news, just an error on the source of the fire. Good to hear that it was just a utility companies transformer catching fire as that isn't news and people just accept that. If it were a Supercharger that actually caught fire like gas stations or transformers, a lot of people would claim they are unsafe. Higher standard for new tech.
I found a bunch of articles on this. Only ONE linked the update -- which is here: https://www.autonews.com/service/tesla-supercharger-ruled-out-cause-nj-fire
Found the update for Electrek. He didn't update his initial post with the link to this one. Just found it when I was going to post the new info: https://electrek.co/2019/11/19/tesla-had-nothing-to-do-with-supercharger...
A Lie Can Travel Halfway Around the World While the Truth Is Putting On Its Shoes
Reminds me of my favorite Mark Twain quote: "What? I never said that!"
@varricks: this is still the go-to phrase of politicians. Especially lately.....
I stopped at the Parsippany WaWa Supercharger station, last night. The previous time I was there, my Tesla was the only Model 3; the rest were all Model Ses. Last night, it was loaded with Model 3s.
