What I was growing up and first driving, you could pull up to a gas station and tell the person who came to your window to “Fill it up with regular.”  Now if you say that, you’re talking to yourself!

If you’re driving between Phoenix and Flagstaff, Arizona on Highway 17, you can fill your electric car at this what?  Energy station?  Charging station? Outlet store?  While it may become commonplace at some point, it’s a bit of an oddball now.

  1. Sign of the future. George Jetson would have loved it. 🙂 I’m so ‘mature’ I remember when they not only filled it up but washed the windows, checked the fluids, and tires. Now, that’s a blast from the past for sure.

    They look like something from Star Wars…

    I remember my uncle worked at a gas station and he pumped the gas, cleaned the windows, fixed tires, changed the oil and we got free maps too!

  4. Great find. We are behind you with electric cars, we will catch up at some stage

    • I don’t know that there are that many electric cars, Raewyn, and I’ve never seen a charging station this size before. Once in awhile, I see a single place to recharge.

    Big odd ball for me they are. Although I do know about these through internet, they are still a far future technology for my country.

    • I haven’t seen any like these before, Hammad. It will be interesting to see whether they take hold and grow or whether something else will come along. In countries where electricity is not always easy to get or is very expensive, who knows?

    I wonder how long it takes to recharge, if it’s as slow as my laptop I’d need overnight accommodation!

  8. All together, now: Ohhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    I live in Oregon and we still say “Fill it up with regular”. We are one of two states that the gas is pumped. We also have an electric gas station for your cars too. So I have the old and new all in one place. GREAT photos this week. 😀

    I sure hope you have a terrific week. 😀
