Hopefully EV owners in Florida are filling up cans with electricity for the coming days

Are Super Charging Stations hurricane proof?

Hey do you think it's harder to find gas or electricity in Tampa right now?

Then after the storm passes do you think you will be able to get gas anywhere unless they also have electricity (even if the station is on a generator)?

My boyfriend Bruno just charged up his Tesla. We plan on fleeing to gayest state in America. Alabama

Gas cans exist.

3 days ago when it was possible to fill those cans and store them for use after the storm also existed.

Considering anywhere in FLA is an hour from the water, I'd imagine there's plenty of places to get gas... IF you have enough gas to dive 60ish miles

Also considering the hurricane doesnt travel in a path that covers the entire state from bottom to top

Do generators exist? Pretty sure they do as I have one.

Why do you dipshits act like gas cans are some superpower for gas vehicles when the pumps run out, and act like being able to charge an EV at literally any livable structure, whether it's powered from the grid or diesel or natgas generator or solar or whatever the frick, just isn't possible? You can even just tow the damned thing for 10 miles then it can drive itself for another 40-50 miles from the regen braking charge.

So people buying EVs triggers you huh... No surprise.

I know we aren't ready to have a substantial amount of EVs on the road, but I don't have one and the problems that those that do have to deal with are just that... Their problems.

At any given point in time, whether before, during, or after a storm, do you think a random person is closer to pumpable gasoline or to an outlet with power? (Hint: anywhere you can pump gas also has a working power outlet, plus florida is littered with generators)

Sure.

The irony in your beloved EV depending on an gasoline or diesel ICE to be usable is delectable

Can you plug them in to an ordinary 110 outlet?

And you use electricity to pump fuel into your car. Where's the irony?

The point I'm trying to get across, and which you aren't getting, is that EVs are versatile... they can be charged in numerous ways. Who gives a frick how the electricity is generated?

They charge slowly that way, but yes.

Most people with EV’s also have a regular gas powered vehicle as well. So if they think they will have problems charging on the road, they can take the gas car.

People who don’t have a source of electricity after a storm?

Should every EV come with an ICE generator so they can be charged in the week or more that the main electric system is down after a storm? Or a tow truck so it can be moved around for regenerative braking?

I'm not an EV fan at all but people who post shite like this are incredibly ignorant.
Do some research about how SuperChargers were powered during Ida. Then delete this dumb shite.

When are storm first responder vehicles going to be converted to electric? Shouldn’t be a problem right?

Again, if there is a source of gasoline there is a source of electricity. What is so difficult about this?

My god, look how far you're stretching to contrive a bad scenario to rely on an EV. First, people who drive gas cars are obviously smart enough to fill up ahead of a storm, but EV owners are too dumb to fully charge the day/night before. Then apparently the EV owner has tons of places to go and things to do while there is destruction and chaos all around. I mean how are they going to burn through 200+ miles of driving in a week? Are they driving to places with no power just to turn around and go back home?

I would tell you to use your fricking head, but I've seen the shite that spews from your head daily so that would be counter-productive.
