Meanwhile, ATM I'm sure all the electric car drivers are laughing...

The local petrol station also houses a Spar and Post Office. I did indeed feel a touch of smugness as I sailed past the half-mile petrol queue the other day in the Tesla to go to the Post Office. I bought a sandwich and a coffee and just as I was paying the power went out. Smugness disappeared in a poof.
