    Are Tesla’s water bottles from the store dishwasher safe?

    "The new Tesla stainless steel water bottle is a conveniently sized, insulated water bottle that holds 600mL / 20oz of liquid. It is BPA free, vacuum insulated, double walled, 18/8 stainless steel, soft touch and perfect for cold or hot liquids." Stainless Steel so I would have thought so...

    Lights flashing

    lol - I worked in Colorado once and one of the peeps on our team said that there had been a hailstorm up in Monument and that there were drifts six foot deep. I of course said "Why in Texas we have individual hailstones six feet across" She said "What, really?" but The look on her face was...

    Supercharger - Denison, TX

    I'd be interested to know what that journey is like. My brother lives in Catoosa and I've not taken the Y up there to show it off yet. I was planning on taking the normal route up 75/69/Indian Nations when I finally did go, but I've also considered 35W and OKC for a change I just wish they'd...

    You're in Colorado ... how big is your place? If you give it an address, that might convert into lat/long for say the front door, but your garage is considered too far away to still be "home" I'm guessing here obviously, but I have an Android phone and set the no-lock-when-at-home feature and...

    Registration of a travel trailer / teardrop camper / [email protected] ... and can someone please stop me!

    Question one: I've been looking at Travel Trailers or Teardrop Campers, whatever you want to call them, specifically the [email protected] because it's the less insanely priced one. I'm in Texas btw Do you have to get them registered? (I expect that's a yes) Do you have to insure them? (I'm betting yes...

    Holy cow. I thought I’d hate this Chinese EV. I was wrong.

    Picture of your Model Y - Right Now!

    Front license plate holder, but no actual license plate .... or did you just do a really neat job of blanking it out in the photo?

    Home charging through Tesla Wall Charger energy payments

    Having said that, I'd actually LIKE to see how much I was paying for my home charging I do have a spare meter (don't ask) but it's a smart meter so if I included it in the line it'd probably cause all kinds of confusion ... and eventually end up in a bill

    Home charging through Tesla Wall Charger energy payments

    I think that's the starting point here and everything flows from that I don't know how SC billing is done ... whether the car knows and reports or (more likely) the SC station itself does the billing. If it's the first then maybe your car thinks your home connector is a SC, if it's the second...

    Charging at non-Supercharger station

    You made it? I was going to suggest you pick it up with less than 100%, then stop at the very first Supercharger you encounter and try to take a charge. That way if there are ownership problems, you'll still have enough SoC to take it someplace safe ... maybe even the original dealership. That...

    '21 MYP How To Turn Off Regen Braking?

    I'm sorry I have to disagree with this. When I did the test drive, I had a problem because I'm used to coasting to the light in an ICE vehicle, whereas obviously I had to drive the Y all the way to the light. When I bought the Y it took me about a day to no longer even notice the difference...
