But with limited battery miles on the latest all electric models refueling stops are going to become a big part of my life. That’s akin to a Sahara Desert traveler connecting the oases dots before hopping on the camel. So far, I haven’t seen a directory of where all the electric fueling stations are located. “Sorry, I’d love to come over but you’re not near a plug. And, those 50-mile long extension cords are way too expensive.”

Thanks to this blog’s plugged-in research team, here’s a quick list of electric refueling stations that’s a mix of pay and public locations. By far, this blog list is NOT complete but with your (community) input ( we can improve on this by adding locations and make this a more convenient resource. It will be here when you need it.
