Video: Driver tries to fill up a Tesla at a gas station, and naturally fails
Not all drivers are smart drivers
Not all drivers are smart drivers; some may not know how to drive a stick shift, or parallel park, or in this case of a woman this past weekend, realize that a fully electric car does not need gas.
The Tesla Model S is fully electric meaning that it does not need gas. Apparently however this driver wasn’t aware of that fact. She does find a release for what she must have presumed was a gas cap; it was in fact the cover for the charging port. No matter, the woman activates the pump before realizing that the gas nozzle won’t fit.
Seemingly frustrated the woman fumbles inside the car at one point releasing the trunk. She eventually pulls out her phone perhaps searching Google for instructions. A bystander arrives with an explanation and soon there were laughs all around.
