Reporting back on our trip to PSE. We charged at Yonker Nissan about 2:00 PM on Friday Dec 5. No hassles, but it was busy. One car had just hooked up. When they were done, a salesman changed over our car from the J1772 he started us with to the Quick charger and then came back to let us know hi'd done that. We got 20 min or so of charge and then took off. There were two cars waiting......
At PSE, we didn't find any open chargers because they were mostly taken up with company cars. I wouldn't depend on getting a charge there. Also parking fee is a bit high for us yolks from Oly. $11 for about two hours.
At our PSE event, we were invited to a dinner in Burien, so we left PSE and charged up at Burien Nissan. Very successful quick charge there. That dealership had a good "vibe" from what we could tell.
After our dinner, we headed home and decided to stop at the Tahoma Market quick charger for a security charge. We thought we were just about through with the seventh bar (just below half a tank) and so selected 60% charge from the Blink quick charge options. That wasn't quite enough so I suspect there is some difference between what we track and what a charger gets from he car's system. We got home fine, but the last two or three miles were under the Low battery warning. Didn't ever see turtle, though. If we stop for a security charge in the future, I'm sure we'll take the time to get more charge than we need.
