    200 miles review: Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4

    Well, after putting on around 1,000 km on my 245/40R20 size PS AS4's, I have to say that the energy loss is not very significant relative to the last set. That tire, that my brain was calibrated to previously, was the Pirelli P7 in the same size. I thought the Pirelli P7 was fairly similar to...

    Anyone else getting a "(EUNSPECIFIED) Host unreachable" from the app?

    My concern was that if the message I couldn't see was important (perhaps a change to the appointment that I needed to be aware of or acknowledge), I clearly couldn't do it via the app. The cell number was the one that we used for mobile service communications before the app was developed, so...

    Anyone else getting a "(EUNSPECIFIED) Host unreachable" from the app?

    I found this thread after being unable to access the service tab in the app. I have a mobile service appointment scheduled for tomorrow morning and my app said there's a new message to view. Of course I can't view it because of the error. I logged out of the account, reset the password on my...

    200 miles review: Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4

    So apparently 15 to 20% more energy-hungry. Not fantastic. I sure wish there was more availability of good EV tires. Michelin has one coming, as does Nokian (so I hear), but I have yet to see availability in North America, let alone Canada. I'll keep track of how the PSAS4's do when I get...

    200 miles review: Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4

    Thanks for the response. I guess I'll be finding out for myself... Costco had a one day, 20% off Easter sale, so I ordered a set. Hopefully they won't be too much different to my old P7s!

    200 miles review: Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4

    Well, after reading this thread in its entirety, I'm still not sure if the efficiency hit is significant... or not. I'll be replacing some older P7s (not the current A/S+) on 20" Rotiforms on my 85D. The P7s were fine, although perhaps a little marginal for tread life. I babied them through...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    My magic number seems to be around 75%. I haven't set it higher for a couple of months now, but the garage is pretty cold these days. I should set it up a couple of percentage points and see if that still triggers the pumps. FWIW, this has been something my service center knows I've been...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    I had Tesla service over to deal with an annoyance on our Model 3 and took the opportunity to ask the tech if he had any ideas. Not really, as it turned out. He didn't think it was a hardware issue - more likely in the software, but of course, nothing can be ruled out. He was also visibly...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    Another data point! It sure seems like this is a big enough issue that Tesla service people should know what it is... or at least, recognize it as an issue. I had the pump start by charging to just over 75%... two tests, two starts. But the third time I tried, it didn't trigger and I had to...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    I had wondered whether this idea might be the cause. However, Tesla service is sure in the dark about it, if this is the reason. I've been back and forth with them for a year and have gotten nowhere. They want me to allow a few hours of labour charges so someone can investigate the logs...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    I have tried charging to what appears to be 73 or 74% twice now - no pump noise. I've also charged twice to around 76%, or just over 75%. Pump remained on after both of these charges. Whether this is coincidence, I can't say for sure yet. I will continue to randomly select one charge level...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    Wow, this is a great bit of information as it confirms my suspicion that it's not just 'me... doing something wrong'... as the service center seems to be implying. I'm actually getting annoyed at the responses I've had from them so far. They wanted me to agree to pay for someone's time to...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    In my case, the actual pump that I can hear doesn't spin up until a few minutes into the charge. When I first plug in, I can hear something at the front wheel, but very quiet and likely something else. I tested this morning after the car had been left unused and unplugged for a few days...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    A few interesting thoughts posted - thanks to all. The idea that the pump will run as long as the battery is above a certain percentage... makes sense in a warped way, but why, WHY wouldn't Tesla Service know about this? They're getting snippy with me because I keep complaining about the...

    Pump Running While Connected to Wall Connector

    This relates to my 2015 85D, which has been connected to TeslaFi since December of 2018. For the last year, or almost a year, I've been seeing high vampire loss and TeslaFi has been reporting few and short sleep periods. I've been attempting to track this down and have been through the TeslaFi...

    20" Tires to Replace P7s?

    I'll have another look since I decided to wait on new ones and wear the old ones down to nothing - thanks!

    Rear trunk won't open

    Weird. I just give it a sharp push, like slamming a regular trunk, when it's an inch or so from engaging. The trunk just closes and there's no noise from the motor. 2015 85D.

    Solution for amateur radio operators? Impossible to use magmount antennas in a Tesla

    So, after 30+ years away from the hobby, I got back on the air at home before Christmas. Pretty much HF only at this point, but I'm thinking about playing around with APRS and maybe a little 2m repeater use as well. I picked up a used FT-817ND to start working QRP HF, with the recognition that...

    Rear trunk won't open

    My cinch motor has been replaced twice now. The light finally dawned on me that if you give the trunk a little shove when almost closed, the mechanism grabs without using the cinch motor. Service tells me that's just fine - the motor is there to do that bit of work for us if we don't want to...

    20" Tires to Replace P7s?

    I can find the P7 in other sizes (a few variations, including the A/S Plus II... just not in the 245/40R20 size. At least not in Canada. I guess I'm looking for something else... heard anything about the P Zero?

    20" Tires to Replace P7s?

    That's interesting. I wonder if they still have them in their warehouse, or if they haven't updated their website? I've checked several companies in Canada and have yet to find one still listing the P7. When I was in the store yesterday, I saw their screen and it clearly said 'discontinued'...

    20" Tires to Replace P7s?

    I'm running 20" summer wheels on my '15 85D. The tires will need to be swapped out this spring when the 19" winters come off. I was going to get another set of Pirelli P7's in 245/40R20 size, but the tire shop is telling me Pirelli no longer makes that size. Ugh. The choices don't look...

    Wiki Canadian Trip Planning

    OK. I'm familiar with the area (see signature... ;-) ). I had assumed you were going from Supercharger to Supercharger and Vernon didn't fit. A run from Vernon all the way to Whistler without a charge would be a stretch for most battery packs. You should try heading down that hill into Mt...

    Vernon to Whistler? Or was Vernon a typo? That's a long run and there's no supercharger in Vernon. Maybe Kamloops to Whistler?

    Solution for amateur radio operators? Impossible to use magmount antennas in a Tesla

    I can relate. Licensed in '78. University and I also managed to get an antenna up (down!) from the 6th floor to a couple of trees. Thin wire - it lasted the full 8 months I was there and nobody apparently found it during that time. Point Grey, UBC, in Vancouver. Over the ocean - it was the...

    Gearheads Can Still Enjoy the Tesla Model 3

    Good piece, definitely on the money! Having access to a dual motor 3 in the family as well as my own dual motor S, I've had the plenty of time in both. I agree that the 3 feels more nimble and is more enjoyable when out for a 'spirited' drive... however, the S is still a load of fun in the...

    Standard Range Model 3 Now Available for $35,000

    Shutting down stores will mean layoffs of sales staff. I feel really bad for them... they've been a big part of the success of the company to date. I wonder if there will be some sort of program - perhaps a much reduced referral program - that encourages owners to help buyers in lieu of the...

    Heh... interesting. I don't think I've ever seen it full, except when Mobile Service used the location back in the summer... and I live in Kamloops, and drive by fairly regularly. No doubt Tesla tracks usage and can extract statistics from their data. I suspect there is room to expand along...

    Trunk Latch Problem

    @MikeBur thanks for this! I haven't tried this but may give it a go. In my case the hatch is down tightly, so there is no security issue with it until fixed. I did work out the on screen icon to lock the car... I'm very surprised Tesla didn't mention this, or make it known. And I've managed...

    Rear trunk won't open

    Mine failed yesterday.... for the second time. Not quite to 100,000 km. I'd have to look to see when it was replaced the last time, but not that long ago. Of course, the 'emergency' cable does absolutely nothing, which seems to be a common complaint. Not sure what the point of it being there...

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    Somewhere I think I heard that the urban units don't share the circuit. So you get the full amount (up to 72 kW) that the battery can absorb...whether someone pulls in next to you or not. Compare that to the regular 'highway' supercharge, with 120 kW and the potential to split down to 60 kW...

    Summary for No Drill Front License Holder for Model 3

    Has anyone had experience with the double-sided tape and Xpel Ultimate wrap? The shop that did the wrap is saying they take no responsibility if the plate and mount falls off and goes under the car... I'm not sure if that's simply boilerplate avoidance or if there's a legitimate concern with...

    My current option is to sit in Hope until I'm pretty much 100% charged, so I can get into Vancouver, do what I have to do, and get back to Hope for another charge. Level 2's are rarely available anywhere I go in Vancouver. If I'm staying the night, I stay where I've learned I *can* plug into a...

    Hot Nite Car Show - "Electric Avenue" - Kamloops BC Aug. 11, 2018

    Too bad you can't attend - it's always been a great day not just due to the interest from the public, but being able to talk to other owners as well. Feel free to twist some arms if you know any other EV owners (any brand) that might be interested...!

The City decided to be safe and use something they...
