    Charger Installation Q

    Our home charger installation was relatively simple since we have a 200a panel. (Snaking the line from the panel in the basement ski workshop to the garage was another matter! Fortunately the quote in advance was fixed-fee, since it took two person-days, one of which was two electricians...

    AmpUp L2 not on PlugShare?

    Drove our daughter today to meet a friend in The Big City. Okay, so a northern suburb of Boston, but either way, far bigger than western Mass.

    FS: Luggage Compartment Partition Net

    As the on-line configurator states: "Luggage net for the rear compartment that is hung from the roof lining to separate the occupants from luggage in the rear." I had this in my theoretical new spec, and it happened to come with my used CT. The other day, I reached for a nondescript long...

    Magic Dock Road Trip: MA > CT > NYC

    Part 1: Planning & Packing The Brewster NY Magic Dock was in the original rollout. But somehow I’d never noticed that it takes me something like only one minute longer than my usual route from Western Mass to NYC. Like almost all Tesla Superchargers stations, located along an interstate...

    Help me waste money on my theoretical Taycan! (i.e., 4CT build thread) Come on now, play along, everyone just loves a build thread! First, some caveats as to how this might stay theoretical: The BMW i4 M50 might satisfy my profligate desire to waste money on an EV to supplement our two ICE...
