A woman tries to refuel a Tesla with gasoline Forward video!
One might think that everyone is aware of the operation of an electric car. But unfortunately it is not like that. If not, ask this woman, who stops a Tesla Model S at a gas station with the intention to fill it with gasoline
It is possible that the car is not his and he has forgotten that he was behind the wheel of an electric vehicle. Or I just did not know that the surprisingly quiet car I was driving works with lithium batteries. Anyway, the scene recorded by the person waiting in the queue is a hoot. Go video!
The sketch starts at the moment when the woman leaves the car convinced that she is doing something normal . Then walk from one side of the Model S looking for the fuel cap . After almost a minute of searching, he manages to open the small door of the cargo hold and quickly grabs the credit card to pay for gasoline.
As you would with any conventional car, the woman grabs the hose and tries to fit it into the Tesla shaft . Of course, it does not fit. After all, the Model S needs a Mennekes connector through which they enter up to 145 kW. Clearly confused, the woman proceeds to inspect the plug before deciding that perhaps there is another opening to enter the gasoline. He even opens the trunk before choosing to phone, probably to ask for someone's help.
The witnesses of the scene might have been inclined to leave the woman in her error. But a friendly passerby decided to tell the protagonist what he was doing wrong. What's lucky, is that I did not press the trigger on the hose while trying to insert it into the socket. If it had done so, the scene could have gone from comical to tragic for less than a second.It may interest you
