[LMB] OT: Cars, independence, and haut bubble

Not counting waiting in line, how long does a “fill-up” take? With my cars, I try to keep at least a quarter tank as I never want to run out. (An incident when I was a teenager, my parents were expecting to fill-up at X. They saw signs, “X in 25, 10, 5, 2 miles. I was in the back, not paying attention when we got to, “Future site of X!”)
At the pump, it never takes me more than 5 minutes. So that runs about 5 minutes every 250 miles still keeping a reserve.
The numbers I hear, which may be wrong or different with different EVs or different charging stations, are 30+ minutes with the same range. Is this correct? Again, I am not certain of my data.

Someone asked me how close was the nearest gas station. PUlling my trusted
smartphone out and look it up. . . The closest gas station is 1.2 miles
away and the second closest is 1.4 miles. Current price of gas is $2.99.
