    Supercharger - Kelso, WA

    Just tried charging at this SC 1st time , max i would get was 150amps. that is ridiculously low/slow. Its like a Chademo charger, and of course CS put me on hold for 30min. Why folks putting up with this ? Better go yo Centralia then

    Supercharger - West Yellowstone, MT

    we stayed across the street at the gray wolf inn on 4/20 and walked around the discovery center few times and i would have noticed it so it must have been installed really fast after that. TM missed us by a month...Oh well next trip.

    Unexpected Charge Time

    my P85 had a similar glitch a week ago, when arrived in my home garage plugged in the car and it started charging imediatly, when looking at the charge control screen it changed it from delayed start of 03:15 to no delay, asked TM to investigate why it changed the setting by itself. I suspect...

    Concern Over Increasing Wh/Mile

    post 7.0 my P85 has jumped from 280wh/m range to 340-400/wh/m on the same daily commute route. Confirmed also on my nightly charge duration is now extended by 20mins vs before 10/15 (7.0 install). I also felt small vibration at times when stopped (AC off), suspect algorithm used to turn on the...

    What's your 90%?

    P85, 34k, low regen, last 6k (10/2015) on new MXM4 tires, currently 90%=230. Before 7.0 90% was 239, then (10/2015) dropped to 211, starting 1/2016 it had an inverse decay UP adding 1 mile every 5-7 day stabilizing at 230 miles for the lasts 2 months, TM/SC has no explanation...

    Installed two new Michellin primacy mxm4 GREEN on the back - now car unstable

    preconditioning is set to On, night charging is completed <1hr before departure, MS settings are the same before and after the tires change, temp. dropped by 10-15F but that still doesn't explain to me the 20% increase in e/m 7.0 ? I'm expecting a direct proportional e/m curve: lower...

    Installed two new Michellin primacy mxm4 GREEN on the back - now car unstable

    so I took a snapshot of one of my morning commutes energy consumption this week to show the issue of slow vs fast driving vs energy consumption with notes with street driving (30-40mil/h), then starting on the why ramp and then driving on the hwy speed showing a drop down curve of the E/m (not...

    Installed two new Michellin primacy mxm4 GREEN on the back - now car unstable

    I stood by the tech to confirm the torque settings , they used 130lb-ft. as they claimed were told to so with MS. I drove very conservative for the first 400mls. I'm tracking E/miles, temp. and PGE data daily now on my commute drive to check for trends. There is one additional variable, 7.0...

    Installed two new Michellin primacy mxm4 GREEN on the back - now car unstable

    similar experience, installed 4 brand new MXM4 same exact model as the original ones, scary unstable in the first 100mils, some what better after that, now have 550mils on them but... significantly higher energy usage (av. 340whr vs 290 with the old tires) with big at lower speed, pressure is...

    TPMS display in V7.0 with older sensors?

    just got confirmation from SC, older models requires both new sensors type and electronic hardware (receiver is different), based on that I just gave the go signal to Discount Tier to install a new set of 4 tires using the current sensors, I would have bought the tires from TM if that would have...

    Torklift Central's 'The Law' removable front license plate bracket

    TC, may I suggest to shorten the plate or allow it to be adjustable so it can be flashed with the front surfaces and wrap the license plate with rubber/plastic to protect the car surfaces? as mentioned the concern is how much the grill can sustain like small frontal bumps into the plate. Thank...

    Superchargers in Northern California (location speculation)

    any one from Berkeley area knows if Berkley Lab's have any chargers inside the campus ? PlugShare doesn't show any. I have a trip planned several weeks from now staying at the guest house for few days and w/o the Vacaville coming/returning to Portland might be pushing the limit (85Kw), prefer...
