French Fries to the Rescue

The Nullarbor plain is an expansive, mostly treeless, region along the coast of southern Australia. As a chunk of Outback between two EV charging networks, until recently, there was no way for an EV to cross its nearly 450 miles. 🌵🦘

You said something about French fries 🍟? Some locations along the networkless stretch have begun offering deep fryer oil-powered charging stations. 

Problem solved! Well, maybe, but reviews say the cost of charging is a little high, a little slow, and subject to failure in the cold ⛄. So while spreading the ever-growing need for energy across more sources is good, reliability in remote regions is also pretty good to have.
