    How can I get Tesla to stage firmware for a DIY part swap?

    Ah. Thx. I'll play with it today. Elon would prefer you list his cars NOT in chronological order, use S/3/X/Y

    Excellent, this useless post gives me the opportunity to play with the Ignore feature on this new board software. Can you tell from your end, @NF, when people have chosen to block your posts?

    Best maybe, but not popular enough to make the cut. I was always disappointed in silver after seeing the production prototype that had the really amazing silver paint job.

    Back to Fresno to get the second shot? I thought the whole reason to drive so far to get the first one was so that you were eligible to get the second one near by. I had a friend took the train to her sister's in Alabama JUST so she was eligible here for the second shot (she is an educator who...

    Cybertruck charging

    Yip, I agree, I posted that thought before on another thread. My 150 gallon tank on my two story RV has fillers on both sides and I actually used them once at a Chevron truck stop. Really speeds up the time it takes to fill your vehicle. Only problem is MOST Superchargers in the country are so...

    Charging only at Superchargers

    I don't charge exclusively at DCFC, but I may do the majority there. I have a friend who got his same TM3 LR RWD the same day as I did, he charges almost exclusively at home. When he charged to 100% recently on his 3 year old car he got 311 miles (the same as the day they were new). I did a...

    Model Y - NorCal to SoCal or Vice Versa

    The reason to make two stops is doing it in one stop means charging for 1/2 an hour, while doing it in two you charge for 5 minutes each. The bottom half of the battery charges VERY quick. And most of the I-5 chargers are right off the freeway. I use Santa Nella and Button Willow as those were...

    Has the cost of hardware and installation and management and taxes gone up? Almost double in 3 years?

    Hey has anyone noticed the price to Supercharge has reached 40¢/kWh in California? Yikes! I remember when I got my car is was 11¢/kWh to charge up in Washington. Why so much? There are gas cars that can easily beat my most efficient BEV in cost from point A to point B, including my trusty old...

    I remember something about them in Electrek or some such, it was a full MegaPak on one truck and a full flatbed of chargers on the other.

    Supercharger - Loomis, CA (LIVE 2 Apr 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    That is surprising that Roseville is cheaper, I notice that Marin City, Cupertino, and Menlo Park are all 20¢/kWh. Not sure but perhaps they are just a glitch in that new major Metro area pricing that just came out this week (20¢ or 40¢ from 10am-7pm), but 22¢ is just weird. I'll have to check...

    This was a great year to collect unemployment. My neighbor retired and got bored so he got a job at a local restaurant JUST at the right time to collect unemployment with his wife and daughter for a year. This was the wrong year to be freshly retired.

    Vendor Scan My Tesla, a CANBUS reader for Android

    Agreed. I didn't like the circular gauges when I first saw them. Kinda hopped for a clone of the Android app as I was used to that look, but this idea of putting a single temp or volt range on the display and populating it with all the readings is inspired.

    Supercharger - Copperopolis, CA (LIVE 31 Mar 2021, 12 V3 stalls)

    When I was there yesterday to charge there was a guy still painting "EV CHARGING ONLY" on the spaces. Also the mall looked desolate compared to the last time I was there. Just one restaurant with customers. Sure hope they get some of the federal recovery money, that was a very cool mall.

    Good reminder, yeah, and even then it's not as effective as the two others. I did put that date in my calendar for when I can start wearing the "Fully Vaccinated" mask. My sister-in-law was down for a week after she got the second shot. Happy to only need one.

    Supercharger - Alameda, CA (LIVE 15 Dec 2018, 12 stalls)

    it's not, seems more like they are working on the sewer in that corner of the lot, or replacing that generator the mall has. I haven't stopped and asked, but it is NOT work you would see from a Tesla crew. Blocking the last two charger spaces would definitely not be a thing Tesla would do.

    Yes, before we even thought about buying a Tesla we had the iMiev. It's a basic car, though it has CHAdeMO, only takes 15 minutes to charge, but the range is a guess and so scary to drive very far for fear of it running out of juice. Just turning on the heat or the AC cuts the range by 1/3rd on...
