    Sand in Window Tracks

    Last night I stayed at a cabin on Lake Michigan. It was dark when I arrived, and I didn't realize that I was parked on the top of a 75 foot sandy bluff. It was extremely windy all night, and when I woke up, the car had been blasted by snowy sand. There was an accumulation of sand around all the...

    120V Charging Battery Temperature Target

    I noticed some strange charging behavior recently. Because I am a terrible procrastinator, I have not yet installed my 6-20 outlet in my garage and am relying on a 5-15 (which gives me 5 rated mph charging). It's my first winter with the car, so this might be normal behavior. I have charged...

I knew quality was an issue, but I'm honestly surprised Tesla is so much worse than peers. The grouping of other automakers is fairly tight, but Tesla is a clear outlier. I just picked up...

    Portable Solar Charging Thought Experiment

    I tried posting this in the technical forum, but I thought I might get some responses here instead! I know this seems to be a controversial topic here for some reason, but I'm interested in exploring how it might be possible to use foldable portable solar panels to charge the car. I know there...

    Portable Solar Trickle Charge for Camping

    I know this seems to be a controversial topic here for some reason, but I'm interested in exploring how it might be possible to use foldable portable solar panels to charge the car. I know there are a lot of reasons that this may be a bad (and certainly a cost and time inefficient) method of...
