I wonder if anyone's stuffed a generator in the back and run an extension cord to charge while driving

All manufactured electric vehicles have a charge immobilizer so they can't be driven away from the charging station while plugged in.
This seems like a fine idea most of the time. But might make more sense if it could be disabled as needed.

Sounds like a solution in search of a problem. Conventional ICE cars do not have a similar shut-off mechanism.

Maybe they should so the hose wouldn't get ripped off or people forget to put the gas cap on and close the door.

Having quick-releases for both gas and electric stations seems prudent. I wonder why they have not implemented that. I know fuel hoses snap off, but I do not believe you can reattach them.

Shoutty Kilmer keeps posting videos about flooded cars. Someone tried to start a 300 and blew holes in it. Scotty got the water out of an older car and it started, but the computer was ruined, and that was too expensive a repair to be worthwhile for that car.

Ben Nelson bought that flooded iMiev. I keep wondering how flooded electric cars will work out.

Who leaves during the storm?

I always park my cars somewhere safe the day before the storm is scheduled to hit.

Most likely the same people who scream bloody murder that their ____ (fill in the blank with whatever) is ruined because its junk (not because they failed to plan).

Right, and if there is no electricity, the pumps don't work.

Right, waiting till the last minute is dumb regardless of what vehicle you own...

But, I could siphon gas from my other cars/motorcycle/lawn equipment and take those gas cans with me. Plus, my Civic will go 700 miles on one tank.

This really only becomes a concern if your only car is an EV, I would guess most people in this scenario would just take their other vehicle.
