100% agree. The primary fueling advantage that EV's have over ICE vehicles is the realistic ability to leave the garage full in the morning, each and every morning. Any assertion that refueling an EV (e.g., from 0 to say 80%) is remotely close to the amount of time spent fueling an ICE (0 to 80%) is completely untrue in 2022.ot having to go get gas at all is a huge benefit of owning an EV and I'm looking forward to that. But saying that you can charge it as quickly as you can fill your tank because you include the time waiting in a gas line at Costco in the comparison is just a total fudge of facts and figures. How long is the wait time at a
What IS true, is that with an ICE, most people only have the ability fuel "on the road". And those EV owners, who also own their homes, have a realistic opportunity to not spend any time standing around waiting for daily fueling (because it can happen for them overnight in their garages, if the get L2 charging installed). So, for the most common use case, keeping an EV fueled can be easier and faster.
But, when one is forced to refuel on the road rapidly ... there is no comparison between EV and ICE vehicles. ICE vehicles win that "race" every time. And I believe they will continue to do so for the far foreseeable future.
But the question one should ask themselves is: how much does that fact negatively impact you on a routine basis? Sometimes, those unfamiliar with EV ownership fail to initially wrap their heads around the idea that keeping your EV fueled (for normal daily driving) is something you really don't have to think about, or wait for, at all. It is only when you drive in excess of the your vehicle's range in a single day that it is a consideration really at all. Some people may do that frequently, and they should definitely consider carefully the infrastructure around them they have available for charging. But for a non-trivial amount of others, if you are leaving the garage full every morning, then it may end up being an infrequent enough concern to not weigh heavily upon you.
