I think that the coolant is just like in the car, an ethylene glycol (anti-freeze)/water mixture. It does have a strong resemblance to oil...

After getting over the sight of the walking billboard, I noticed that the posts are labeled 2A and 2B right next to each other, which I like.
The ones I have visited in Cali tend to be 1A 2A 1B 2B (Folsom is like this) which isn't as good because most peoples' tendencies are to leave an empty space away from cars that are already there so that there is more room to open doors etc.
Having 1A 1B right next to each other means cars are naturally picking non-paired spots for faster charging. Smart!

I know we're all pretty smart people here, but I thought that color-coding the stalls would work better than trying to figure out this 1A/2B thing. Have a big round colored sticker on each stall. See someone in a GREEN stall, pick the RED or YELLOW stalls first. Never double up on the same color stall unless necessary.The ones I have visited in Cali tend to be 1A 2A 1B 2B (Folsom is like this) which isn't as good because most peoples' tendencies are to leave an empty space away from cars that are already there so that there is more room to open doors etc.
On a Tesla facebook group, I saw someone go into a very long explanation how they SCs are arranged in "A" and "B" banks, so if someone is in an "A" bank (say stall 1A) then choose a "B" bank (say stall 1B) so you're charging on a separate "bank". The prefixed this by saying that's what a Tesla employee just told them. I told him (and everyone else) he had it totally backwards. But I can see where the confusion comes from. But the way I see it, there's no need to number them that way (you can tell geeks were in charge of the numbering schemes, I'm surprised they're not labeled 0a/0b and 1a/1b ).
Anyway, just label them with pairs of colors, and there's very little for people to get confused about and very easy to explain.
