    Will Tesla open up the SuC network?

    Tesla chargers are currently not public but I expect the legal definition will change at some point in the future. Ionity doesn’t have contactless they have a remote call centre in Germany. I like the idea of contactless but poorly worded legislation has made that still a pipe dream.

    No reason not to sell Cyber truck in South America and Canada. Europe…nah.

    Thurrock SuC: looks like UK Power Networks are laying 1.1km of cable. Depending on which website you look at that could take anywhere between 17 December (temporary traffic lights on one section of the arterial road) and more likely something like 10 February (lane speed restriction). Arterial...

    Model 3 Roof Bar Installation

    If it helps: Mine does touch the glass but I wouldn’t necessarily say squeeze. Screwed down the rear rack does seem to run out of thread to get to the required torque.

    Accommodation advice please

    Worth noting Keele South just has 4x V2 stalls and is commonly busy. There is the new V3 at Trentham but it is a bit off the motorway. Try your ABRP route with an early stop at the BP site M6 J27. M6 Toll isn’t cheap but definitely recommend. Rules out V3 at Hilton Park though. Warwick South...

    Climate control - How to get a consistent temperature?

    I thought my 2019 Model 3 was good/ok. 2021 Model 3 definitely seems a bit off (yes it’s had the sensor fix/recall done).

    Although, once Tesla have finished the snags on the first car you have to repeat the process on the next one. Grrrr.

    Will Tesla open up the SuC network?

    At the point you add long cables it’s time for a new tombstone design. Not insurmountable but git to be more elegant that just long cables.

    Heated steering wheel - nope

    Is there a conclusive answer on whether the early 2021 (Fremont) cars do or don’t actually have a heated steering wheel? Hoping I do and it just needs activating.

    Apple Homekit / HomePod / Siri Tesla control/interrogation of the car

    Not sure if it’s the Tesla App or iOS 15 but my Apple Shortcuts / Tesla Remote don’t seem to be working this year. Very annoying.

    Is a Tesla easy to steal?

    I’ve always avoided the Apple Watch - just another thing to charge. Do you like it / rate it? My thinking is starting to change.

    Holiday Inn at Dumfries was satisfactory and several CPS charger points 300m or so away with free parking. RFID card worked fine. 10 mins from M6.

    Gov Open consultation: Future of transport regulatory review: zero emission vehicles

    Just don’t provide electricity to anyone that isn’t authenticated. The first time you plug in you identify the stall you’re on in the app and associate your car (ID3/Polestar/etc) to your account. Voila. If you don’t have the app you can always phone up to pay haha. We’ve been conditioned into...

    Gov Open consultation: Future of transport regulatory review: zero emission vehicles

    Having challenged a council parking fine I learned that each local authority writes its oven regulations for its off-street parking (public). We need someone to lobby the councils - it’d be a start. Something activists like XR & Insulate Britain could do to help the cause.

    Cost (charging)

    Pretty much yes. 7.4kW added every hour is about 10% of the battery on an LR. Which could be anywhere between 20 to 30 miles depending on how you drive, temperature etc etc.

    Cost (charging)

    One to think about. When the CMA did it’s market study (Final report) it used estimates of £7m to put a new supply into a single MSA. Might be worth finding out what agreements are being handed out to get access to the Road Charging Fund. If they’re loans and not grants, then the cost will have...

    small roads question

    There’s only so much you can do; Turn on Joe Mode helps for some. Speed limit warning set to ‘Display’. Single lane roads are single lane roads I’m afraid.

    Cost (charging)

    Don’t forget that not all apples are the same. Tesla measures DC to the car (battery?). Everyone else measures A/C to the chargepoint. There’s something like 15% loss in the conversion for A/C to D/C so Tesla’s 37p would be more like 42p with anyone else.

    I assume that after the technical coding/dev and testing (haha), that Tesla then make a regulatory assessment for each feature for each country. If that hasn’t happened yet the feature doesn’t get loaded and comes through in a later round. So stuff like GDPR, UNCE, gets captured reasonably...

    Sentry mode power drain

    Can’t be improved without hardware changes. Sentry was an OTA update following owner requests. It’s an afterthought that relies on running the car computer. Computer uses say 200W/h plus a little bit for the cameras. It does amaze me that a car manufacturer with a sustainability mission adds a...

    Pretty unreliable. There’s usually boats landing in late Nov/early Dec so in your case you might be ok.

    Biofence mode basically recirculated (scrubs) the air through hepa/carbon filter. Elons vid was pretty impresssive - a new filter will clean the air in 2 mins. Might not scrub the methane but should work for smelly airborne human byproduct particles - can anyone confirm or deny ;)

    Strange charging issue. Charges beyond the set point

    Lots of possibilities. What rate are you charging at? This will sound dumb ….but if it’s dropped below the typical 7kW it’ll take longer. Charger fault? Cable fault? Worn pins? (Did you try the new app & dial down the current by mistake?!) change of weather - did you leave the...
