Jay Leno (who has some of the most valuable cars on the planet) doesn't back into or back out of for that matter, his garage - He pulls in onto a turntable so he can rotate the car 180 degrees and pull out forward just like he pulled in ;-) ... e-pictures

I have to back into charge at my spots. Only ChargePoint seems to have really long cords.

Fortunately I got the rear camera and the I-MIEV is so maneuverable.

During our recent Tesla Canadian trip we stayed at a motel that had this sign. My wife is showing her displeasure at me breaking the rules (but I did clear it with the motel staff, who were still gobsmacked by the car).


What did bother me were the number of oversized diesel pickup trucks already parked there that were blatently violating this rule.
