I only took about 40h of flight instruction, but I remember my instructor shutting off the fuel of a Cessna 172 and asking me what I should do next. "Find a good place to crash."
EV nuts often think the same way, but with charging. Always have an emergency charging destination in mind.
Another good thing to have is mad skillz hypermiling. This is a form of masochism where you deliberately try to get as many miles per kWh as possible when there is absolutely no reason to. I already have a good idea how I can exceed 300 miles on the highway in my I-Pace. But like finding a good place to crash, I'll probably not need it. Nice to know it's there though.
On Day One, this came in handy since the dealer did not charge the car, and we left for home in the rain without knowing how far we could get off 20%.
