    Supercharger — Montrose, CO

    Just as an update I charged there last night. The street is fully open. The Hartmann Brothers building is quite a wreck. Amazing job by Montrose F.D.

    Supercharger - Mountain Village, CO - Mountain Village Blvd

    At least with the very thin air, the electrons move much more easily. 300KW delivery for sure! 😏😆

    Supercharger - Kettleman City, CA - Bernard Dr. (check navigation screen for status, 56 V3 stalls)

    Wouldn't be at all surprised if after the TG weekend they shut it down temporarily to pave it. And after that, hopefully before too long, add a solar canopy.

    Haven't updated the spreadsheet since early 2020 ...on the last trip for awhile (thanks, Covid). But at least got one more in 2020, thanks to Montrose going online 20 minutes from home! :cool: Finally hit the road again this April on a "See my 97-yo mom in California or bust" trip. So...

    Oh, we have met. And we pass each other on the road all the time. The founder of OSM drives a Model 3. I met him when he stopped at my house to charge (I'm on Plugshare). @evp has also charged here, which is cool since I've charged at his house too! :cool: Yeah, considering how much they're...

    Routes from the Montrose CO Supercharger Station

    Definitely a fun drive. And if you can make it to the top of Monarch, you'll make it to Poncha -- it's a long downhill ride, and you'll end up at the SC with more range than you had at the top of Monarch.

    Supercharger — Montrose, CO

    End of 2018, just barely before the end of 2020 -- pretty much right on, for Elon Time! (But hey, I'm happy: my stock is well over 10x! :D )

    Supercharger — Montrose, CO

    I noticed the pedestals were numbered (with tiny tape: big numbers coming soon?) as 1-ABCD and 2-ABCD. Pilot circling overhead was extremely jealous. Taken 2:30 this afternoon. Picked up a few things from City Market (Kroger) while charging.

    Tesla moments

    I was over at a neighbor's house a couple of years ago -- he's a doctor -- and was shocked to see a white Model S in the garage. I had no idea! We live on a dirt road. His is cleaner than ours. :oops:

    Supercharger - St George, UT

    While I'm sure that there are jerks who are Tesla owners, don't make the mistake of assuming that any particular trash around a supercharger was left there by Tesla owners. Open-access sites are open to all, including those who have irrational fears of electric cars and the people who drive...

    You're suddenly well off, your lifelong friends are not. Now what?

    This is a fascinating thread. I definitely wouldn't do ANY gifting without talking to a tax professional first. I see you're in Canada, so your mileage may vary, but in the U.S. you trigger gift tax at >$15,000. (And that's tax for THEM, not you.) There are some ways around that, but you...

    (Coronavirus) On UV Sanitization

    That's fine for a cloth mask, but NOT the N95 types. Studies have shown trying to clean them with any chemical agent (e.g., alcohol) degrades their filtering ability. If you MUST reuse an N95 (sadly needed with shortages), it's best to let them COMPLETELY dry out, ideally for 3 days, before...

    My MS has had that happen now and then. If I notice the car is offline (via the signal indicator on the main screen), I reboot the next time I'm stopped. In the meantime, neither the app nor TeslaFi can connect with the car.

    Model Y - Hands On

    Thanks SO much @SilverSmith for taking the time to get so many photos and answer so many questions -- because someone asked, and you answered, EVERY question I had about the MY. Yep, this will be a perfect replacement for my current small SUV (Ford Escape hybrid). Much appreciated. All I can...

    Supercharger — Montrose, CO

    There are 2 at Montrose Hospital (parking lot -- often they're full because at LEAST two ER docs have EVs). There are 4 at the "new" Montrose Recreation Center, 16350 Woodgate Rd, north side, where I rarely see any EVs (except when my wife is there!) And 2 at the city parking lot on 1st St, near...

    Do you have shudder on hard acceleration? AKA death rattle?

    Thanks for your feedback, Alysashley79, I appreciate the different point of view. And yeah, I've heard about the diagnostic charge, which frankly sounds reasonable since I'm sure they get plenty of "My car sounds like a jet engine when supercharging at 110 degrees in the sun!" sorts of...

    Do you have shudder on hard acceleration? AKA death rattle?

    I'm arguing with Palo Alto right now about covering it under warranty at my service appointment tomorrow; my car has well over 50K miles on it. I pointed out that I complained about the shudder LONG ago, and the response was "we're doing an alignment already, that should fix it." I forgot to...

    Service Bulletin out on Hard Acceleration "Shudder"

    Hmm. Last time I was in California for service (Palo Alto), they charged $9.75 for this "Courtesy Inspection"! On a car that shows exact tire pressures on the screen. :rolleyes::confused: I have an appointment there in January for my Clevis repair.

    Yeah, I was really surprised about the Ridgway action. Montrose makes a lot more sense. I had assumed "Telluride" really meant Mountain Village.

    New tire time - anything quieter than the Michelin Primacy for 19"s?

    I just noticed that an error was introduced when we moved from the Wiki to the spreadsheet: my "Supercharging Since" start date. I got my car December 20, 2016, and my first SC was that date, not in January 2016. But I don't see a way to change that basic info in the spreadsheet....

    We had used our handyman for several years, but he never noticed what as parked in the garage, until he came over to talk to me in the garage (the door was open): "You have ...a Tesla? You have a TESLA?! You have a Tesla!" And he went home and never came back to finish the job. His day job...

    Glass Replacement and Geico

    I made sure my State Farm policy had glass coverage and, when my windshield cracked from side to side, they reimbursed me 100% with no problems whatever. I have the winter package, so have the wiper heaters at the bottom. Total price at the Palo Alto SC: $815 for parts, $181.25 for labor.

    Walked in for a new shirt at the mall and left with this...

    Does AZ have a state EV rebate? If so, check to see what constitutes "new" -- in Colorado, 1800 miles would be too many (was 1500 miles when I bought my inventory S, and the car had 1200 or so). Still, seems like a screaming deal.

    Thanks much, but I got it from the first technique presented. (Then had excel delete the rows where the cells were blank, then sorted.) I found the discrepancy -- and a few errors (wrong year noted on visit), which I'm fixing in the spreadsheet. I appreciate the help!

    Is there a way to get (from the spreadsheet) a list of all of my visits, with dates? I have a file on my computer, and they seem to be out of synch now (sigh!), so I'm looking for a way to resolve. Thanks! (I'll be moving up the chart some soon: heading out on a trip Friday.)
