There was a funny moment caught on camera as a Tesla owner took his electric whip to a petrol station in an apparent bid to confuse the fuel attendant, lol.
A man and his friend caused a big scene in Lagos state and it was an interesting drama to behold. In a video that has gone viral online, he drove a Tesla to a petrol station, and the fuel attendant kept asking where his tank was.
The attendant kept asking the man to re-park so that he’ll see the tank opening but after checking both sides with no success, a voice in the video in Yoruba wondered whether the tank is beneath the vehicle.
After much confusion, the man revealed that the car is an electric automobile and does not have any need for fuel.
The video also stirred a conversation online as social media users blasted the Tesla owner for making the attendants look foolish.
Ejeh John: When you buy such car, make sure you buy your own personal transformer join.
Nigeria wasn’t among the country Tesla have in mind when producing that electric car.
Wait o, why buy such car when you know that you will still buy fuel or gas to power your generator before charging it???
