A comment about disgusting gas stations vs charging your EV in the comfort of your garage.Gas stations are probably the most disgusting places that most people have to visit on a regular basis in their daily lives; there is nothing remotely nice about going to gas stations to fill up
I, like I am sure many guys, thought nothing about gas stations. It take maybe 4 mins to fill up. They just exist. No big deal. Being "dirty" or disgusting is a non-issue. Until I read this, I never in my life ever heard anyone complain about dirt pumping gas. Restrooms are another issue but when not on the road in a rest area, who uses a gas station restroom? There are more germs on the produce in a grocery store where many people have touched the produce you then eat. I don't know anybody licking the gas nozzle. But now to support your position in a way I never thought of before, I read this post on rennteam If the direct link doesn't work, just go to the Mission E thread, p.70, July 26. Someone made the point, about gas stations and women, that some do not like the exposure in being what might be an exposed position while pumping gas.
He might have a point. Its not your point, but its the idea of gas stations. I go to a gas station and its 3 to 4 mins, in and gone. Pull up, take CC out of wallet, insert, back into wallet and pants, maybe 10 seconds tops, 3 mins to fill, close tank, jump in car and gone. Thats not necessarily the case for women. And this in no way is being sexist, but reality. What do you do with the purse? Maybe the women here can respond? I asked my wife, who hasn't bought gas in years, no need cause I drive all the cars over the years. Takes purse with you. Do you when its a $1K LV or a $3K Gucci? She took the with her. So ... Purse on seat? Do you take it with you out of the car, your keys? Your wallet? Men are different. All our stuff is in our pants. You get out, your wallet and keys are with you? Fish out the wallet, then fish out the CC ... go through the same action to pump gas, ... then reverse its more difficult. Its might take longer.
If I get out of the car, everything is with me, wallet, license, if I have a phone, its in my pocket, keys, everything. Is the same true for Women unless they take their purse out to pump gas? Any time it takes to fish stuff out is time when they are vulnerable. Looking down, distracted, etc.
I can see his point. No need to feel vulnerable.
