I'm thinking of just putting one of those orange triangles on the back of the car and putting along. There are plenty of straight stretches to pass and it would be easy to do so when I'd be moving so slow.
. . . . or, you could go 40 mph the entire way and not risk getting run over (or assaulted by a gun toting madman you've been holding up for the last ten miles) and then stop to charge for one hour (you don't need to fill it up to get there) and still get there just as quickly as driving 25 mph the entire way

You're having 'fun' . . . . but don't throw common sense put the window
