Depends on the FCEV, now doesn't it? The Mirai 2 got good reviews, as did the Nexo IIRR. the Clarity and Mirai 1, eh. What's needed is a compact AWD FC CUV. Station reliability (or often in California, station supply reliability) is still a problem, but that can and is being fixed.
Hydrogen stations are complex, expensive, unreliable and scarce. How is that like gas stations, again?
It's not, now. OTOH, it's exactly like public charging stations. On my Bolt trip last year I went a combined 3 for 11 in successful charges: 1 for 8 at EA stations (0 for 4 using my phone, 1 for 4 using the credit card I'd pre-registered with them exactly for this possibility) and 2 for 3 at Chargepoint stations using their membership card (Got it around 2013, but had never used it until last year). The failure at one EA station imposed an 8.5 hour delay on my trip, as I had to sit at an L2 overnight in the next town south.
Nice subject change. You got great propaganda skills.
I've had far more public charges, and fewer failures. So why was your trip so bad? Did you plan it to be bad?? Reliability varies, of course, and EVgo has been very good for me (no failures, zero failures, 0 failures) and 136 charges. A few I didn't have on my EVgo account, so actual total would be higher. A few times I had to wait. 6 times had to try twice to start the cha
rger, 0kWh session followed by a successful session. Once had to try three times before getting a successful session.
onment was also very good. Did have to call the phone number a few times as the fob failed to work. Way less than half of the times.
link less so. Several failures, only a few dozen charges.
epoint has been very good, but mostly L2 stations.
EA wouldn't be good if they didn't have so many char
gers at each location. I've tried two char
gers several times before getting one that worked. But only had to move a few feet to try again. When you have 19 plugs/10 chargers to try...
I know, L1 charging doesn't work at all. Didn't work for you with a Comutacar back in 1981(?), so is doomed for ever and ever, amen.
Funny how your experience and other people's experiences can be so different. And how you talk up your electric car failures.
