    A dilemma about a Ford Mustang Mach E on Order - What would you do?

    Just how reliable does your wife’s car need to be? Nothing’s perfect, plenty of Teslas have issues. What’s going to be worse, her car needing service or talking her into something she doesn’t want?

    Supercharger - Allen, TX

    Yeah 75 and Stacy is a nightmare intersection. Good luck to travelers.

    Texas owners: Free nights or Net metering

    X2 on everything. Came to the same conclusions for our home. FYI to you guys that have had it on “set it and forget it” mode for a while - the app now allows grid charging powerwalls… so you could flip that switch to cover any lack of solar if needed. Use at your own risk with respect to tax...

    Texas owners: Free nights or Net metering

    yes still exports to grid, just no credit for it. ERCOT and the Texas grid thanks you for your donation 🙄

    Texas owners: Free nights or Net metering

    Does the rest of your neighborhood’s lights dim a little bit when you hit your free period :oops:😄

    Texas owners: Free nights or Net metering

    Just depends on how much you generate vs use. Personally on free nights, but have only a 8kW system so don’t generate as much. If you generate significantly more than you use, net metering can result in negative bills. With Free nights best case is $0. I’m not aware of any electricity plans in...

    New Solar/Powerwall Install Colorado Springs, Wait for PTO?

    What I personally did was turn on the inverter, allow the powerwalls to charge up, then turn off the inverter. This at least gave me back up power for any grid outages pre-PTO.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    “We” is the most amusing part of that quote to me. As my coworker used to say, “we? You got a mouse in your pocket?”

    Storm watch opt-out [New feature in Tesla App]

    Isn’t this new?

    Storm watch opt-out [New feature in Tesla App]

    Maybe I’m misinterpreting the notes? I understand how to turn on and off storm watch… this update makes it sound like individual events can be opted out

    Storm watch opt-out [New feature in Tesla App]

    Added in most recent app update. Tesla read my mind. Anyone have a screenshot of what the opt out notification looks like? Really liking all the app functionality improvements for Tesla energy over the last 18 months.

    Charging off grid ( solar only)

    I don’t see how any third party charger would help - isn't charging start/stop controlled on the car side? Or do some of these actually tie into Tesla API to allow this?
  17. G

    Charging off grid ( solar only)

    Your battery storage will act as a buffer for any drops in solar output. But the car will not adjust charging rate on its own. So you will want to set it to a fairly low rate to have minimal conflict with your home loads and battery storage.

    Starlink and Ukraine War discussion

    Getting real world data like this is invaluable, especially from a grateful and non-paying customer. It’s really a win win for both Ukraine and spacex.
  19. G

    Poll: Are you in favor or against U.S. doing more in Ukraine?

    I’m confused by the question and answer choices? If I answer yes, what do I want?

    Please update the Model Y spreadsheet

    How many millions of cars per year does Tesla have to make to end this madness :p

    1,100 mi Turo Tesla road trip w/ fam, am I crazy?

    Will you have access to use the app when renting through Turo? If not, that could be a big downside.

    Tesla Solar Roof & Powerwall + 10 kW System Solar Generation is Lacking

    Shading? What is your layout relative to north?

    Long trip scenario. Which is better charge situation?

    The way I think about it- 100% charge is a POSSIBLE long term concern… 0% charge and being stranded is guaranteed misery. Are you married? Traveling with spouse and/or kids?

    I think on twitter he said they are working on a monitoring only plan Edit:

    Vendor Tesla Model S Battery Extended Service Plans from 057 Technology

    Admittedly hypothetical situation, but do you foresee a purgatory where a customer is disqualified due to battery health, yet Tesla disputes any issue? Do you think we would have a hard time convincing Tesla of problems reported by a 3rd party device?

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Would this eliminate the need for a separate J1772 adapter? Maybe, just maybe, Tesla will manufacture a gazillion of these so they include them with new cars and also have enough to stay in stock in the store?

    Cashback & Bonus Points for Supercharging and other EV chargers

    Wow first time I’m seeing the M1 credit card. What kind of financial gymnastics are they doing to offer 10% back? Do you supercharge enough to make it worth it? I’ve been pretty happy with the alliant 2.5% cash back on everything card

    Giga Texas Updates

    I think it’s pretty obvious these are non-sellable test vehicles, lined up in such a way that Elon can drive the first production cybertuck over them during Wednesday’s earnings call.

    Bike rack and super charger

    Travelled from TX to CO with the 1up cargo tray with 1 “add on” tray attached, so probably the equivalent length of 2-3 bike trays. It was usually a tight fit but never had to fold or remove it. Usually had my wife get out and spot me while backing up, the rear view camera is just way too...

    Is there an update on out of warranty battery replacement cost

    vroom quoted me $27,000 for my ‘14 S85 with 115k miles. This market is insane. Very tempted to sell before battery warranty expires this summer, but not sure what to get. Everything’s so expensive right now. 11k for a remanufactured battery is probably my cheapest option. Wife already has a...

    Time Based Control Expected Behavior

    Is this a new install? I think it’s recommended to set it and forget it so it learns usage patterns. I’ve noticed that with the most recent update, where you can input more utility rate details, it seems to be working “smarter” for me. It used to discharge during off peak, to “make room” for...

    Charging current

    I remember an old thread where there were recommendations of around 30A, sweet spot of charging speed and minimal waste heat in the charge cord/handle. Who knows how this has changed over the years though…

    $12K for FSD is insane

    1up USA Bike Rack

    Partially blocks as stated above but it does cause the sonars to be on red alert the entire drive and is kind of annoying in reverse. Wish there was a way to turn off.

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    Sorry if I missed it, but is Tesla’s premium connectivity subscription still required to use Tidal, even if you only listen to music that was already downloaded to the car while connected to Wi-Fi?
