Here's the Pudding: "Franklin Park" Supercharger?

I had a number of people question my "confirmed" proclamation on a previous post regarding the Wexford Supercharger.  They said the white cabinets could be "anything," despite my assurances they weren't some kind of new vending machine installation for your MTOs.  Well I've been doing this a long time...

Wexford / Franklin Park Supercharger CONFIRMED!

As one of our sharp-eyed local Tesla owners put it, "That looks familiar."  ANOTHER Supercharger location found and under construction in western Pennsylvania and-- you guessed it-- it's at ANOTHER Sheetz.  Elon, you gonna come get your MTO n'at??

Hermitage / West Middlesex Supercharger CONFIRMED!

Hot on the heels of the DuBois / Falls Creek Supercharger getting turned on and our own unofficial charge at an unopened Supercharger near Corning, NY... we now have yet ANOTHER new Supercharger that was spotted by my very own father near Hermitage, PA.  Wanna guess who is hosting the latest Tesla Supercharger?

DuBois / Falls Creek Supercharger CONFIRMED!

Not content to wait for others to claim the glory, Darren and Joseph mounted up and headed for the hinterlands of Pennsylvania to see if the rumors of a DuBois Supercharger were true.  Here's what they found...

RIP to the PA Supercharger Desert?

The well-publicized cooperative agreement between Sheetz and Tesla is finally bearing some long-awaited fruit!  We already knew about Breezewood, but now there's another Sheetz Supercharger rumored to be just days away from completion:  Falls Creek.

One of our local Facebook group members stopped at a Supercharger near St. Louis and caught a Model 3 munching electrons in the middle of the night.

Never Again

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh is getting dragged into a debate that we didn't ask for, but for which the city is uniquely equipped. For me, it's about pollution, not politics.

It's Open and it's Grand

It was a long wait for those of us who jumped on the Tesla bus early, but now there's finally enough room for everyone in Pittsburgh to ride.  The Service Center in Wexford threw open their doors for a VIP Grand Opening Party Thursday night and we set foot inside the new facility for the first time, along with a large group of local owners and reservation holders.

Tesla Service Center Gets Finishing Touches

Progress on the Pittsburgh-area Tesla Service Center has been fast over the last couple months.  With the company's name crisply emblazoned across the modernized facade and the garage/bi-fold doors all finally installed, the end is finally in sight as final work continues inside.

Looking Back - My First Annual Service/Review of "New" Model S

My first annual service came just shy of a year after we took delivery of Serena, in April 2015.  I knew that Tesla would be changing the cars aggressively but I was blindsided by how extensive the upgrades were, even at that time.  The gulf between our humble S85 and a new 90D can't be overstated-- but don't misunderstand me, I'm still very satisfied with our purchase.
That said, I was looking forward to playing with a brand new Tesla and I came away with mixed feelings... which Tesla quickly rendered obsolete (What the wha...???).  Guess it's time to get this off my chest and it should have some useful info for those of you shopping used/CPO now.
