Although ME-9 is the fast route to Eastern New Brunswick, you're in rural Maine there so there isn't much. The vacation-home money's on the coast along US-1.Day 1 report. Drove from MA to The Algonquin Resort in New Brunswick. Plugshare said they have two Tesla chargers and a wall outlet, they were wrong, no wall outlet. The Tesla chargers were both ICEed. Filled up at a decrepit one pump station before we crossed into Canada, Google Maps wasn't clear about the location of filling stations because the cell coverage is very spotty, if you take this trip you should note that there is one real gas station on the route, an Irving, but we had already filled up at the one pump station.
My Volt is having trouble with the roads in New Brunswick, it started making scraping noises immediately after we entered Canada in Saint Stephen, the sound stopped on the highway but resumed when we got off in Saint Andrews. The roads are bumpy but they don't look as bad as they sound. I pressed on all four corners to see if there was a shock problem, everything seemed good.
Gas mileage on the trip so far, 46.6MPG. I have half my battery left, I'll stay in Hold until we get to PEI, the Comfort Inn ar]t Charlottestown is supposed to have a wall socket according to Plugshare. There was a picture of it on Plugshare so maybe it exists.
The Irving you're referring to is presumably the Irving Big Stop in Baileyville, ME at the intersection of ME-9 and US-1. Tesla has a permit to put a Supercharger there, but given their cost-cutting I'm not expecting it to be built this year.
There are also gas stations in Calais, ME itself.
I'm not sure what "decrepit" gas pump you used. There's a place in Cherryfield, ME that has a couple of old pumps, but I wouldn't call it decrepit. I guess you hit a one-old-pump convenience stores along the route.
It's only 77 miles from Eddington, ME to Baileyville, ME and with a small population in the area people along Route 9 are going to be OK stopping at those convenience stores if they're not regularly heading to Bangor/Brewer, Ellsworth or Baileyville/Calais areas anyway.
We did pretty well in our 2013 Volt on a trip to NS and PE last year. I don't remember the road noise being loud. But we were heading straight to Halifax, NS so were on the highways. What are your tire pressures? And what tires do you have?
