    Supercharger Pricing Map?

    Supercharger pricing was still there last time I checked. Example: Did you somehow get free Supercharging pushed to your car? That’d be pretty sweet. 😜 (I think prices don’t show up if you have free Supercharging.)

    Is it okay to charge to 100% if I am immediately going to use it right away?

    Sorry to necro this thread, but I too would like to get a source for that graph so that we can verify how a “DST Cycle” is defined. If, as @ATPMSD posits, a single “DST Cycle” is defined as one discharge/charge event and does not account for the depth of discharge in any way (in which case...

    2022.12.3.16 - 85mph vs 90mph (on MCU2 upgraded P85D)

    Pretty sure that cars without Tesla Vision (I.e., cars with radar and without FSD Beta) should stay at 90mph.

    Re-enrolled in FSD Beta against my wishes

    I suppose. I’d just like to understand why it happened, if I should expect this to happen repeatedly, and/or if I need to be worried about getting permanently forced over to Tesla Vision sooner than those without FSD (assuming that Tesla follows through with switching everyone over at some point...

    Re-enrolled in FSD Beta against my wishes

    I opted out of FSD Beta on my 2018 Model 3 several months ago and happily returned back to my previous life of radar-enabled bliss. It took 5 emails sent to Tesla over 10 days for them to let me out. But now… …Last night I installed a software update (2022.12.3.20) without carefully...

    Supercharger - Oswego, IL

    Tesla recently jacked up Supercharger prices (again) nationwide. IL and Chicagoland prices are now $0.38-$0.47/kWh.

    Model 3 Aero Cover Kept Popping Off --- Root Cause Discovered and Fixed!

    After I swapped out my winter wheel set a few months ago on my 2018 Model 3 with 18" aero wheels, all of the sudden one of the aero covers didn't want to stay fully seated on the wheel. It was difficult to reinstall initially, and then afterward it kept partially popping off the wheel during...

    Supercharger - Oswego, IL

    Ouch… $0.45/kWh. Also, I noticed that 4 of the stalls on the right end (stalls 3A-3D) are not turned on. The lights on the pedestals are off and they won’t charge if I plug in. (Hence it showing “8 stalls available” out of 12 even though no one is plugged in.)

    Teslas to Have Windows Auto-Close When It Rains

    Presumably this would require the car to stay awake so it could “see” the rain, right? So probably would cause significant vampire drain, comparable to Sentry Mode, I would guess.

    Glare from side repeaters in blind spot camera?

    Following up on my earlier post, I just did the glare fix on my left side camera after doing the right camera last week, but this time I drilled the holes in slightly different locations than what @Tevo Solutions originally recommended. Instead of drilling the two holes 3mm and 23mm from the...

    Glare from side repeaters in blind spot camera?

    That’s why I didn’t understand why it would matter if you got the taped version. I didn’t think the owner would ever notice a difference. As described earlier in this thread, the fix isn’t to crack open the entire case and add tape. It’s to drill a couple small holes and add some black...

    Is there any functional difference? Like a sharper image? You can also swipe down on the video feed window.

    Supercharger - Michigan City, IN

    LOL Just FYI... in Nov 2021 Tesla changed the the per-minute pricing at Superchargers all across the US and eliminated most of the cost savings opportunity at per-minute Superchargers vs per-kWh. And then just recently they changed all Indiana Superchargers from per-minute pricing to per-kWh...

    2022 MYP - Very Slow Acceleration

    That does NOT sound right. Did you ask Tesla what’s the deal?

    Glare from side repeaters in blind spot camera?

    @Tevo Solutions First, I just wanted to thank you for posted such a professional, detailed, and thorough video to help out other owners. Absolutely top notch. 👍 But after going through the process on one of my cameras, I was wondering how you came up with the precise locations for drilling...

    Ccs or chademo to j1772 adapter?

    The product page says it goes up to 19.2kW, which would be 80A at 240VAC.

    Ccs or chademo to j1772 adapter?

    You could buy that one on Amazon for $65, or you could just buy another one from Tesla for $50. 🤷‍♂️ (The Tesla adapters are currently in stock.)

    Do supercharger users not care about price?

    Fast forward a month and now these Superchargers are up from $0.48/kWh and $0.24/kWh to $0.58/kWh and $0.29/kWh. And it looks like the same is true for all of the other Superchargers around the major metro areas in Cali that used be at $0.48/$0.24. As for the OP’s original question… My personal...

    Supercharger Pricing Map?

    Looks like there was an across-the-board price increase for US Superchargers recently. I’m not going to bother trying to update the price maps this time as it’s too much work to chase this ever moving target. One interesting observation though: Indiana Superchargers have now been changed from...

    Discussion: Tesla Vision system for Model 3/Y

    A welcome, albeit long delayed, move in the right direction. But still worse than cameras+radar in every performance respect: Slower top speed Longer minimum following distance Forced auto wipers Forced auto high beams Phantom braking? (I know it’s better now than it was a few months ago, but...

    Wind shield wipers on upon FSD

    Can someone confirm if cars with Tesla Vision are still forced to have auto wipers on when Autopilot is engaged, and auto high beams engage every time autopilot is engaged? I have a 2018 Model 3 with radar, but I had Tesla Vision on my car for a couple months earlier in the year when I had FSD...

    Tesla Vision's Autopilot speed limit reduction from 90 -> 80 MPH has been a pain roadtripping across the country.

    You have to send an email to [email protected] asking to opt out. Then you get an automated reply saying that if you want out you need to reply with your VIN. Then you reply with your VIN. Then you wait and cross your fingers that someone at Tesla actually does something about it. I’m my...

    How do I safely disconnect the USB stick in v11?

    Easiest way is to press and hold the big button with the camera in the main “Controls” menu. (It’s next to the “Mirrors” button and above the “Sentry” button.) If it’s currently recording, it will say “Recording” and there will be a red dot in the camera icon. If it’s not recording, it will say...

    Supercharger - Oswego, IL

    Noice. Where exactly in the parking lot is it located? Hard to tell from the photos, but looks like it’s not near the existing 4 Electrify America chargers in the NE of the lot. Instead looks like it’s over closer to the Chick-Fil-A and Verizon store.(?) Nearby food options include the...

    Mobile Connector no longer included with new cars [posted 04/16/2022 - Tesla confirms adapter included with cars ordered before 04/17/22]

    Did he provide any specifics to back up the claim that UMC usage was “super low”? I find that claim extremely hard to believe.

    Screw in Tire, Replace or Take a Chance?

    If you want/need to replace it, and don’t want to spring for 1-2 new tires, you could check Ebay for lightly used tires that roughly match your existing tires’ tread depth. I just bought 2 used Michelin Primacy MXM4’s with ~6/32” tread for $100 each. I.e., I got ~2/3 of a new tire’s tread life...

    Supercharger - Portage, IN - George Ade & John T McCutcheon Travel Plazas

    I entered I-80 at the westbound Willowcreek Rd entrance and there is a toll plaza on the ramp that billed my I-Pass / EZ-Pass $1.21. 🤷‍♂️

    Tesla insurance and the yoke

    The relevant terms are spelled out clearly on Tesla’s website: https://www.tesla.com/support/insurance#real-time As I suspected, it uses the same “Safety Score” as FSD Beta: “Your premium is determined based on what vehicle you drive, your provided address, how much you drive, what coverage...

    Tesla insurance and the yoke

    If the “aggressive steering” score for insurance is anything like the FSD Beta Saftey Score, it’s based on how many G’s the car experiences in turns. So it would have nothing to do with how much force is used to turn the steering wheel/yoke. Also, the FSD Safety Score is unreasonably sensitive...

    Estimated charge time way off

    🤦‍♂️ It’s not less trivial than I think. This isn’t graduate-level thermodynamics here, and I’m not expecting accuracy down to the minute. But having charge times routinely overestimated by well over 100% is f’ing ridiculous. There’s no need to make excuses where none are warranted.

    Estimated charge time way off

    I was delighted at first when I saw in the 2022.8.3 release notes that charging time estimates were going to be improved by taking into account battery pack temperatures. But then I was disappointed to see that it only applied to Supercharging and other fast charging. The inaccurate AC...

    Audio system looses bass or all sound, and strange clicking

    Can you report if you got any resolution to this issue? I have the same issue in my 2018 Model 3 (also recently out of warranty), but for me it's definitely a more recent phenomenon. I.e., it wasn't an issue for the first few years of ownership. I'd guess it started sometime in 2021, but has...

    Supercharger - Portage, IN - George Ade & John T McCutcheon Travel Plazas

    I charged at the westbound plaza a couple days ago. I briefly saw 250kW after starting charging at 24%. Two observations: 1. Neither of these Supercharger are shown on Google Maps. Anyone know how Superchargers get added to GMaps? (I.e., is it like Plugshare where Tesla has to do it...

    6-20 to 14-30 worth it?

    More like 40+kWh, assuming overnight charging for at least 10 hours.
  41. J

    6-20 to 14-30 worth it?

    OP said 600-800 miles/month. With a MYP, depending on variables (driving efficiency, temperatures, preconditioning, etc.), that probably works out to no more than 350 kWh/month in winter months. That would equate to an average of ~3 hrs/day of charging at 3.8kW. So a 6-20 outlet is plenty...

    Model 3 Hack: View the rear view camera while driving (and still keep the navigation in view)

    I have renewed interest in this after V11 took away the trip efficiency card. I could use it to pin the trip efficiency to the bottom of the screen and still see the map. But Tesmat no longer sells the original clamp. If anyone has one that they'd want to sell me, I'd be interested (at a...

    Supercharger Pricing Map?

    There’s no shortcut or trick to it that I know of. You just gotta park yourself in front of the in-vehicle Nav screen and tap away on the map. I did this awhile back when trying to compile average prices by state. At that time I found peak/off-peak pricing in Bellevue, Bothell, Issaquah...

    How do I opt-out of the FSD Beta?

    Just wanted to add my recent experience… It took me 3 emails sent over a period of 9 days to get opted out. (I noticed FSD Beta had been deactivated on Day 10, one day after my third email.) It’s so nice to have radar back and be rid of all the drawbacks and hassles associated with Tesla...

    Odd pattern on windshield

    Ha! I was just about to post my own thread on this subject and stumbled on this thread. I observed the exact same snow melt pattern on the windshield of my 2018 Model 3 last night after parking in a light snow for ~30 minutes. (Photo below.) I've seen snow melt in front of the camera...

    What the hell happened to my horn?

    FYI: I ended up getting my horn repaired by a mobile service tech today. The problems were happening more frequently lately, and I was approaching the end of my warranty period, so I figured I’d just get it taken care of.

    No home charging option for first year of Model Y

    I’m late to this thread. Just wanted to point out a minor correction, which is that Supercharger $/kWh prices have no correlation to the speed of the charger.

    Supercharger - Rochelle, IL

    The Love's would be a great location, being so close to the highway. But FWIW... Dwight, IL also has a Love's right off the highway, but the recently-installed Dwight Supercharger got put at a Casey's instead. (Granted, the Dwight Casey's is closer to I-55 than the Rochelle Casey's is to...

    Illinois Superchargers

    I came looking for any discussion about all the new "coming soon" Supercharger locations planned for IL and found this dormant thread. I'm kind of amazed (1) how many new Supercharger locations are currently planned for Chicagoland, particularly in the suburbs, and (2) how many appear to be...
