Hi David,

It does not looks like anybody is actually using the car=* tag along
with the amenity=charging_station. The wiki, is probably not
documenting what is in the database. I would use the JOSM mirror
plugin, or overpass API and download all of the existing 2100
amenity=charging_station features, and see what people are actually
using. The taginfo, combinations is empty!


If nobody is tagging car=* on the charging nodes, then import it with
the consistent names and update the wiki, since you will be
establishing actual tagging practice in this import.
