    EV blues

    No biggie. Just don't go over 90% SOC, don't drive it down below 70 miles remaining, don't park it in the garage, and if you charge it in the garage make sure you move it outside immediately after charging. I guess if you get down below the 70 mile range limit, just look for a place to pull...
