But of course we stopped 15 mins for fuel and coffee on the way there, and really should have stopped for food on the way home (rather than arriving hungry at 11pm as we actually did!), so there would have been plenty of time to get a bit of charge on the way. "I bet there's nowhere to charge on these cross-country routes" I thought, but a quick search for charging locations found several places we could have stopped for coffee with 32A charging available. So, even my worst-case driving could fit a Model S after all.
The thing I hadn't properly thought through before is that with a 300-mile car, even if your trip doesn't quite fit, you don't need a full recharge, just a small top-off [this is obviously common knowledge to roadster owners]. So I don't think superchargers are very important in the UK, and even then we don't need many of them (even Lands End to John o'Groats - the longest possible journey in the UK - is only 840 miles or so).
About 140p/litre = 530p/USgal = $US 8.50 approxIs gas still over 130p in London? Last time I was there I think it was like $9/gallon or so once all the conversions are factored in (pounds to dollar, liters to gallons). Whatever it actually works out to my wallet did not like losing all the pretty little bank notes
The Fast Show, but good guess!

Okay, you guys want the truth? Here it is:
Elon Musk is a hologram projected from Bulgaria via the internet by a cabal of Lowland Scots whose plan is to discredit EVs by building the best EV possible with today's technology but charging $600 per year for maintenance, thus insidiously undermining the claim that EVs require less maintenance than ICE vehicles. They further have infiltrated the nation's water treatments plants where they will secretly substitute Gatorade for the fluoride, resulting in a long-term rise in tooth decay so that Americans will have to spend so much time at the dentist that they will have no time left to vote, and the conspirators will be the only ones voting (they'll have been drinking bottled water with their own fluoride added) so that they'll be able to put their own chosen people in all government offices. This done, they'll pass laws requiring every citizen and resident of the U.S. to wear a kilt. With everyone wearing a kilt, nobody will be able to tell who are the men and who are the women. The birth rate will decline to zero, and when the U.S. is empty, in a generation, Scotland will move in. It's a dastardly plan, but it's not foolproof. All America has to do is quit eating anything with sugar in it. And hire dentists for all the polling places. Their scheme will be foiled.
You may ask how I can reveal this without fearing for my life. Well, I signed an NDA, so they'll never suspect that I'm the one who posted this. Plus, I put a tin foil hat over my computer modem so they'll won't see when I post.
