I was driving back to my office and was stopped making a right hand turn in my LEAF.

A man with a gas can in his hand came up to me. I rolled down my window.

He asked me where the nearest gas station was. LOL

I really had to think about it for a while....

No "gas anxiety" here, LOL

If you had given the guy a ride to a gas station, your topic title might be:

"Electric car driver rescues stranded man who ran out of gas"
:lol:

Yeah, but then his EV would have had to visit a gas station, AND might result in smelling like gas from the can he was carrying... And those two things are just WRONG! ;)

I actually did this about a month and a half ago... but in fairness, it was my housemate needing the rescuing. :)

I'm guess the LEAF NAV is fairly standard for Nissan (albeit with charging stations as POIs) but doesn't show gas stations ... I mean you guys do have to go the the bathroom don't you <grin>. In all seriousness, I was thinking your NAV could have pointed in him in the right direction to the nearest one.
