Man goes viral for trying to fill electric Tesla car with petrol

A driver was left baffled as he tried desperately to fill up his Tesla with petrol before realising it’s an electric car.

Most Tesla owners buy their car because of the environmental benefits of driving an electric vehicle.

But this man in Las Vegas seemed unaware that his Model 3 runs on electricity when he tried to fill it up with gas.

Dash cam footage shared by magician Justin Flom on July 15 shows the baffled driver trying to refuel his car at a gas station to the amusement of people in the car behind him.

Footage shared on Facebook by magician Justin Flom shows a sleek, black, Model 3 Tesla parked up alongside a petrol pump at a station, where the driver got out and disposed of some rubbish from his car.

Behind the camera, Flom could be heard commenting on the absurdity of the scene, saying: ‘This guy got a Tesla, at a gas station?’

Flom and another onlooker speculated whether the driver was just throwing something away, but it soon became clear that the man was indeed attempting to put petrol in the electric car.

 Realising what he’d done, the man could be seen yelling: ‘F*ck!’, before getting back into the electric car and driving away.

Flom’s video has racked up tens of thousands of reactions at the time of writing, July 18, with countless Facebook users commenting on the unfortunate situation.
