Woman Hilariously Tries To Fill Up Tesla Model S With… Gas!

One would think everyone knows electric vehicles are “filled” with electricity, not gasoline. Well, we have evidence that at least one person is unaware of this.

Perhaps forgetting that she was behind the wheel of a Tesla Model S or perhaps blissfully unaware that the eerily-quiet car she was driving runs on electricity, a woman pulls up to a gas station and sets about trying to fill up the EV. Unsurprisingly, what followed is absolutely hilarious.

Things kick off the moment the woman steps out of the car. Clearly unfamiliar with the vehicle, she walks around confused while looking for the gas cap. After about 45 seconds of searching, she manages to open it up and swiftly grabs her credit card to pay for gas. Unbeknownst to her, opening the ‘gas cap’ was the easy part.

As you would with any ICE vehicle, she proceeds to grab the gas pump but, of course, it doesn’t fit. After all, the Model S features a plug rather than a gas cap. Clearly confused, the woman proceeds to inspect the port before seemingly deciding that perhaps there’s another opening to put the gas. She even opens the trunk before jumping on the phone, presumably to ask someone for help.

The bystanders could have easily let the scene continue to play out (we wouldn’t have blamed them), but instead, a man decided to jump out and tell the lady what she was doing wrong.

Fortunately, the woman didn’t press the gas pump trigger while hovering over the plug. If she did, a she might have started a fire . Thank God for small favors…

    It really is amazing how so many of us get through our day based entirely on routine and habit, but not really thinking. How does someone end up with a Tesla, manages to put it in Drive and Park, yet has no understanding about gas vs. electricity?

    I just received my January issue of Car&Driver wherein they shut down the new Silverado by saying that soon we’ll all be living in a “High Country” and disasters like this will be a lot more tolerable. ‘Nuff said…

  • Cobrajet

    Only a woman.

  • kachuks

    I had to assume this was going to be a staged video. The sound of these guys laughing their asses off tells me otherwise.

    • db

      I was thinking the same thing until I seen the credit card go into the pump.

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    Well, if true, she certainly isn’t helping dispel any myths.
    I bet she went back later to put some “super” in it.
    And they let her drive on public roads…

      Not here.

    • Is “as domb” a new way of saying “da bomb”?

  • ctk4949

    Not sure what was worst, the girl trying to fill up her Tesla or the guys laugh?? Wow, that laugh was annoying!!

    • Thunderbolt

      The person who let her drive in the 1st place.

  • Jay

    But?? It doesn’t have an gas gauge with and E and F..?? What made her want to get gas in the first place.

  • davidriley

    fake video

  • Tumbi Mtika

    This can’t be real.

    If so, Elon really needs to stop being sued.

  • sidewaysspin

    Women and cars just don’t mix well.

  • Paul

    Well, she is blond after all. This has to be a joke because the car has no fuel gauge like a regular car has.


    smh these women!!!!!

  • enthusia

    this is so funny and its definitely a stunt i’d pull. i live for a good gag.

  • SpongeBob99Swell

    Don’t try this at home, kids..

      I think it’s real and could’ve been a prank by the real owner of the car. A friend or companion most likely let her borrow it and told her to fil it up before hand.. not knowing about Tesla’s would leave many people to do this too. It’s hard to believe but there are folks who don’t know what kind of car this is nor that it’s electric.

      • Bash

        So he is faking it lol. The owner.

  • Six_Tymes

    like the news, this is also fake. but funny

  • Przemix

    remember – all asian videos are fake

  • Stephen G

    So fake, I don’t even think that’s a woman.

  • Hot Twink

    Surely a faked stunt to get internet traffic for whoever originally hosts the video.

    Tesla drivers have proven they aren’t brightest crayons in the box, but they can’t really be THAT stupid.

  • Van Hammer

    I was thinking that’s not her car and she’s just the ‘victim’ of a prank. But. Why would she stop for gas in the first place.when a Tesla does not have a fuel gauge. Either she is really daft or just an actress in a silly video meant for laughs.

  • Yavor

    More like “a girl”

  • Bill Nguyen

    What’s an ednolb?

  • Galvanics

    EEBSWS. Error exists between steering wheel and seat. Have a tough time believing she interacted with the car so long without noticing something amiss. The “engine” never “started” yet she drove it anyway. I’d expect her to sit in the driveway waiting for the engine to start and never make it to a gas station. Another commenter guessed, it’s either fully staged or she got pranked by one of the two in the car with the camera. They could just lie and say it’s a hybrid with EV mode like a Prius.

  • Bill Nguyen

    Haha, well why didn’t you just say so? 😉
    Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!
