I'm a new E-Tron owner and have so far only used public charging stations twice. On both occasions, within 20 minutes I've had a different random Tesla driver come up to me with "How long you gonna be mate? Only I'm down to 0 percent charge, there's no other chargers nearby and I need to get to my grandma's wedding / my pet budgie's food store in the next 30 minutes mate". The first one I believed. The second... not so much. What happened to their much-vaunted superchargers? 🤦🙄

Just tell them "No worries. With Audi's superior charging curve you'll be finished up in no time!"

You are finding out the same way I did that the biggest problem for EV drivers are other EV drivers.

At first I fell for the "i really need a charge ASAP" a few times. Then quickly realised the EV owners are no more polite or considerate than any other person. I now play it on a case by case basis and if the person is poilte and not spinning some BS I will move on if I don't need the extra range. If they BS or give me attitude I politely tell them how long I am likely to be and that they can charge then.

Interesting, why wouldn’t they wait their turn or find another unit? Tesla has more chargers than other providers however, they can use non-Tesla sites as well. Plus, they typically have more chargers at Tesla sites.
