    Supercharger - Fairfield, CT

    Hey all. I'm driving south on the NE corridor tomorrow and was going to swing by the SB Fairfield SC to try out 250kW charging. Seems like the service here has been intermittent. Any comments? Any recent status?

    Scenic Drives NH

    More and more often, I skip across the border and wander around Woodstock VT.

    Tesla - North Shore Mall Gallery- Peabody

    It's in the Tesla nav as of the 4/6. I'm at 2020.12.1

    Shut down with supercharger in sight

    This is a great thread. I am grateful that Tesla doesn't "dummy down" the car to protect me from myself and it exposes some of the engineering details to let me use the car as I see fit. I never agreed with having a BEV shut down prematurely to protect the car. There could easily be an emergency...

    Perhaps a third battery charge display option is needed

    Honestly anything could be calculated. To avoid the debate what to display, it would be nice to have a selectable "running average" predictor. The owner can then select what to display via driving configuration. Examples would be things like: miles to go based on current driving, miles to go...

    PSA: check for rust at this point

    Hard to say whether you are missing something or not. It's on the driver's side and is consistent with the original article. Check both sides regardless. BTW, I checked another M3 that was manufactured about 3 months after mine (near the end of '18) and it did not exhibit that problem

    PSA: check for rust at this point

    Agreed. Putting something back there (e.g. tape) will only help to preserve existing paint before it rubs away. Once it's gone and you get rust, all bets are off. Either way, I'm of the opinion that the panel must be adjusted to ensure that the gap is there as intended. Since my original post...

    PSA: check for rust at this point

    Some of you may have read New Evidence Seems To Show A Tesla Model 3 Fender/Frame Rust Issue that discusses paint issues on the Model 3. The issue that caught my attention was the rub point for the driver fender near the top of the drivers door. Anyway, when checking my Model 3 (ca. 8/18) I...

    Control/Monitoring EVs by Municipal Power Companies

    I happen to live in a town that has its own municipal power company (no generation, just owns the town grid) that is very progressive in promoting solar, EVs, etc. I've had the pleasure of interacting with them on several things but one thing that came up recently was grid and load planning for...

    Things my wife said about Navigate on Autopilot tonight

    I didn't read a lot of this thread but hit a few posts. Agree 100% with the original post and have experienced similar reactions from my wife as well. I also agree that Tesla should read the wiki page on what a low-pass filter is (if it exists). Anyway, IMHO I believe that the "Tesla AP"...

    Autopilot Called Out in NTSB Report on Tesla Crash into Fire Truck

    Because the AEB did not have priority over AP?

    Autopilot Called Out in NTSB Report on Tesla Crash into Fire Truck

    If you are saying that the radar does not detect stationary objects, I would have to disagree. Radars regularly detect stationary objects in vehicles: e.g. guard rails, parked cars, pedestrians, etc. I'll also note that any object in front of a moving vehicle has a doppler shift due to the...

    Autopilot Called Out in NTSB Report on Tesla Crash into Fire Truck

    What I do not understand here is that regardless of the autopilot version, vision system, etc. there was a Forward Looking Radar on the car which should have handled/mitigated the collision. Very often the radar is used to trigger automatic braking/collision mitigation, adaptive cruise, etc...

    Autopilot Warnings

    Exactly. I wish there was some rethinking of "how do we evaluate driver engagement" I think it's fine for now but could be better as we endeavor to improve the whole human/machine interaction architecture.

    Autopilot Warnings

    What I find frustrating in these articles is the rather bland reporting about driver warnings prior to a crash. Example in this article includes "The report found that the driver’s hands were not on the wheel for the vast majority of that time despite receiving numerous alerts. Autopilot was...
