    CCS Retrofit Availability (2023)

    EVGo is using a legacy chademo adapter, hence the 50kw limit. This is not a nacs implementation

    Actual in Hand Owners… Post up

    One of the owners is from Florida. He flew out for the Austin event. Instead of driving it all the way back to Florida, he drove it from Austin to Houston (Hempstead SC) to get a feel for the car. It was awaiting a transport truck to Florida when I was at the service center. Apparently the...

    Roadside Assistance no longer supports non-OEM tires

    Please be aware sometime in the last month or so Tesla Roadside Assistance changed their policy and will NO Longer provide a loaner wheel/tire if you have a flat with non OEM tires. See the attached chat. I have OEM wheels with new pirelli tires and they would not come and help. So...

    Supercharger - Barstow, CA - East Main Street (PERMANENTLY CLOSED 7 Nov 2023, 4 urban stalls)

    Apparently, this was the very last Urban Supercharger ever deployed (5/27/2022). I am glad we are moving on from the 72kw charging era.

    Supercharging an M3 from Hertz

    Be very careful with Hertz. I am a long time Tesla owner and thought it would be fun to rent a Tesla for a weekend trip to Chicago. Many of the rentals are missing the J1772 adapter and charging cable, this would not be an issue but they hit you with fees if they are "missing" from the...

    Curious if any one has been by to see if Tesla has removed the charging equipment yet. It was sitting there a while.

    CCS Retrofit Availability (2023)

    Just completed a side by side at a Chargepoint station. My Chademo adapter pulled 48 kw and the CCS adapter pulled 55 kw. The station is rated for 62.5 kw. https://www.plugshare.com/location/331396 It is wonderful to have options. Yay Tesla!

    CCS Retrofit Availability (2023)

    Woohoo, I now have CCS. Appointment took a bit longer than expected since I was the technician's first retro install. He said they had a dozen or so scheduled for the week.

    Availability of CCS 1 adapter refit for legacy Model X vehicles?

    No. Considering it requires a mobile visit, it is very reasonable. The chademo adapter I bought was $450 in 2018. I love the flexibility of being the only EV on the road that can charge from all US standards.

    Agreed. I was hopeful the service centers were now performing the work. But sounds like we still need to wait...

    You should have a PDF estimate available to download from your service appointment in the Tesla app. What does the estimate say for the $189?

    CCS Adapter for North America

    I seriously doubt it will be offered in the US until the government mandates CCS as a national standard. Once that happens, Tesla will offer retrofits. (I hope I am wrong, but that is basically what happened in Europe)

    Non-Tesla / non-EVgo station with built in Tesla CCS adapter

    I bet they used epoxy or plastic cement to permanently fix the adapter. If so, it is not coming off.

    Abandoned Model S at Huebner Oaks San Antonio, TX Supercharger

    This doesn't pass the sniff test...Tesla can remotely unlock and disengage the charger port lock. There is no reason Tesla would cut the cable like that. I am guessing it was someone else that cut the cable...

    Can I report a phantom braking event?

    I hit the camera/ report button every time I experience phantom braking. It might not help at all, but I feel better hitting the button. I have a stretch of road that is tree lines , heavily shadowed and AP thinks the shadows are objects....go figure.

    Info from Tesla - 277v feed to Wall Connector (HPWC) - Which Cars Support It

    A large OBC makes sense in areas without L3 chargers and you don't want to spend all afternoon. Look up Fredericksburg Texas, Barons vineyard has a 80 amp charger. It was perfect ... 1 bottle of wine = 160 miles. It was the one option I missed moving from my MS 2014 to a 2019 model. 🥺

    Model S eMMC Recall

    No idea what that fault is. Try opening a new ticket in the Tesla Phone App. If you have the latest app, it should pull down the exact error code into the ticket. Then the remote team will investigate it prior to the service center. That should get you moving in the right direction.

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    Recent Updates to Model X - Range Mode? Daytime Running Lights / DRL?

    Tesla just sent the "thank you for the feedback" response. But using the new(ish) camping mode, I am able to go to the drive in without issues. We are able to tune-in the radio and keep the exterior lights off. This has been a lifesaver through COVID.

    Supercharger - Clayton, NM

    Three stalls are roped off at Clayton with caution tape. I was able to get a charge off one of them parking parallel... Not sure if Tesla did this or if it's some kind of prank....

    It seems EA does not maintain their ChaDeMo connectors very well as many will sit broken for months. Be sure to look up the station on PlugShare and see what other users are reporting
