    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    Northern California. 10900 Miles since March 2013, 295 WH/Mile. Mostly short commuting against the main flow of traffic, so lots of red lights... Very little AC so far, no radio.

    Taking apart a Roadster charging plug

    A few years ago, I posted a series of pictures documenting how I took apart an MC120 plug. The original post is half way down this page: J1772 Charging for the Tesla Roadster - Page 3 Since then, a few of you have asked for more detailed instructions, so I put this document together: Opening...

    How do you have your displays setup? (Touchscreen and Dash)

    I never bothered changing the left and right displays... I think I read about how it can be changed when I first got the car but never got around to it. I never use any of the steering wheel buttons. I also don't use the audio system at all: I enjoy the silence! So it shows the Wh/mile on the...

    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    After a little more than one year, I'm at 9800 miles and an energy use of 296 Wh/mi. This is mostly commuting in fair weather (Northern California: we did not have a winter this year), with speeds rarely exceeding 60 MPH. Very low use of climate control. Just got the 5.9 update and it looks like...

    Supercharger - Vacaville, CA (expanded in 2017, 16 V2 stalls)

    This will be very convenient for travelling between the SF Bay Area and Sacramento. I have three such trips planned during the holidays. Not having to detour through Folsom would be nice!

    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    Update: dwegmull - 298 Wh/mi, 5521 Miles, 19", 85KWh, Northern California My energy usage has come down with the temperature. I think I'm at a sweet spot now as I (and the battery) do not need any climate control. Soon we will need the heater... It is interesting that the comfort zone of humans...

    Exterior box big enough to hold the UMC?

    Maybe one of these would work: McMaster-Carr They do get pricey with size...

    Model S Mirrors

    I hope they will offer it as an upgrade for existing cars. I only have a couple of inches of clearance on each side of my garage opening... Furthermore, I wonder if the wiring harness for the motors was already there (so the upgrade would consist of just swapping the mirrors and updating the...

    Unlocking the Doors from inside

    If my window is opened all the way, I reach out and touch the exterior handle on my door, causing all of them to extend. It is a bit awkward, but I find it quicker than fumbling with the touch screen.

    PG&E EV Rate Timing Chart by Musterion

    Sorry, I do not have one. I'm still on a basic rate (no time of use), once I switch, I will probably get one of these devices...

    PG&E EV Rate Timing Chart by Musterion

    That is one nice graphic. I might just have to print it once I switch rate... By the way, several companies make real time indicators that are compatible with smart meters: Validated HAN Devices

    Model S Software/Firmware wishlist

    I would like to be able to log into my Google account, so the maps would show my favorite spots and saved maps. This way, I could create a map with a customized route on my computer and it would show up on the car's screen. Today, I use my tiny phone display for that purpose...

    So what's available for sale at the Fremont store?

    If you are in a bind comes the 30th, I can loan you my 14-30 adapter. By the way, when I ordered it online (just a few weeks ago), it arrived the next day by Fedex...
