    Off topic galore

    Does it count as prior art if it's been documented previously? (Same stunt, but 10 years ago)

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    When you see a typo, but you check to see who wrote it, and think, "No, I'd better go look up that word".

    It has 4,400 HP and 6,000 kW/hr's of capacity

    I don't know why they avoid trains, but they have made similar things to haul rocks out of the Boring tunnels. It probably enables them to go straight up hills at full speed, too! Well, there's your ten percent, right there.

    Tesla Service Rhetoric...sigh

    I used to fight with the seat belts until I saw an explanation. This one I pulled from a Model3 Owner's Manual. To securely hold child safety seats, all passenger seating positions are equipped with an automatic locking retractor (ALR) that, by pulling the seat belt beyond the length needed...

    Rattle behind the monitor?

    Also check that the sun visors are latched. Sounds that happen "up there", reflect off the windshield and they sound like they are coming from "down there".

    Charging issue. 1/mi range per hour

    It is still possible it is confused. The battery could be charged, and all reported numbers are goofy. No way I can think of to tell, though (other than the obvious :) ) Now that I think about it....your electric bill, or the meter, or how hot the cable gets if you charge at 30+ amps would be...

    Charging issue. 1/mi range per hour

    I'm slowly getting up to speed here. This is a Model S. You're showing us the small screen. I have seen many inexplicable, wacky things that were caused by a low 12v battery. Your computer may be confused. Maybe you just need to adjust the charge rate--which you can't do without the main...

    Charging issue. 1/mi range per hour

    What is the battery level? You managed to take a picture where I can't see the number at all.

    Lowest wh/mi

    So, like this: Note how far we've travelled. It's pretty meaningless.

    Anyone recognize this bolt?

    I thought it looked anti-theft-ish. Also decorative. Like something that would attach a license plate.

    Driver Side B-Pillar glass Scratches/Issue

    In the story I heard, even the Tesla Service guy was fooled. They ordered a replacement, and when he went to remove the glass...he discovered the plastic covering!

    What happen After charge in full

    If your car is full, then it is no longer charging. There are "idle fees" that are in effect if half or more of the charge stations are in use. Tesla has an article about this. You can read it here.

    UC Riverside Engineers: Current Fast-charging is damaging

    I bet it starts out at a high charge rate, and then tapers down as the battery fills up!

    What happens if everyone drove EV?

    The production of gasoline consumes about as much electricity as we use to power our cars directly. So as we all transition to sustainable energy, we are freeing up the electricity we need for charging.

    2nd phone app user: Same Tesla account or separate?

    It's not mentioned because it's not necessary. Since each phone is matched to its own key, the driver profile feature works even if you share one account. It's the key that determines which profile to set. Ours is set up this way and it works as expected.
