This is amazing news! I've actually been wondering if gas stations would start putting in EV chargers.....and here it is. A start, at least.

According to this page, the charger listed is a as level 2 80 Amp (20 kW) , still some work to do with the designations etc, also no mention of cost. Nice if included "Electro Points" :)

Yes good news. Many gas fuel stations are getting into the game. Shell in Europe, I think BP too. Also Shell in USA and Irving. Matter of time.
