Case in point; I ran a wire to my garage from my breaker panel for a 50 amp outlet. I would have been close with 8 gauge with a 33’ run, so I went with 6 gauge just to be safe and allow the use of a 60 amp breaker in the future if the outlet were removed for something requiring more power. I did this so if we’re all driving electric cars in 15 years, I can have a powerful charger in the garage in the event that different ones are available based on the availability of different levels of power.
