After an incident between a box truck and my parked car on Saturday morning (despite the very large NO TRUCKS sign on our street), I'm driving a rental Chevy Volt for the next little bit here. It's a pretty slick little car that runs on electric or gas, but unlike the Prius which charges itself, the Volt needs to be plugged in. Aside from hoping that I could manage to snag the parking spot directly across from my house (doubtful) and then running an extension cord across the street to my car (seems.. dangerous?), anyone know of a good way to charge a car like that in the city?
Apparently the Liberty Gas on Columbus Blvd. by Ikea has a charging station, but it takes something like 4 hours to top off the battery completely. Guess I could go watch some TV in one of the Ikea living rooms while that's happening, but there's gotta be a better way.
