    ACK! Forgot to change limit back to 80% after charging 100%!

    This is not the end of the world and your battery will be fine. When this has happened to me in the past I would run the climate for 30 minutes to an hour to use up some of the excess energy. Most of the damage to the battery is done when it sits for too long at a high state of charge.

    Advice on Daily Charging for Long Commute

    I've been a Tesla owner for 8 years now, on my 4th vehicle. On a daily basis I would not recommend charging 10 100%. I think your best bet is to 1- Charge to 90% and make sure you pre-condition each morning, 2- Plan to stop at one of the SC on the way home for 5 minutes or so to top off your...

    The silliness spread around the 'net regarding EVs (& Teslas)

    It's amazing the amount of ignorance there is out there. Next, you will be told that special water is needed to wash the car because regular water will cause a short!

    Alternative Route

    Yes that will work. An alternative is to set the nav to a point on your preferred route and then as you approach the waypoint change your destination to your actual destination.

    Is preconditioning necessary before charging in mild climates?

    You can navigate directly to the Supercharger, if you choose to bypass preconditioning simply tap the screen where it indicates the car is preconditioning, it will stop. Preconditioning is not intended to save energy but to save time. Preconditioning before charging at home is not necessary...

    Third party charger vs nema outlet

    I've used the Mobile Charger with a NEMA 14-50 outlet for almost 8 years and have been perfectly happy with the results. As you noted the only issue is that I need to remember to take the charger with me if I am doing a road trip.

    A Better Route Planner (ABRP) Premium

    Does A Better Route Planner allow you to indicate the times you would like to stop for a meal? If it does this it would calculate longer charge times during meal times and could even select supercharger locations that have better meal options.

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

    Ok, let's change the dynamic from talking about how the stock will react to S&P inclusion to what happens afterward. I think we all will agree that TSLA will only rise through 12/23. How high, we will see. Moving post-inclusion, I am looking at 3 periods. 1- 12/23 - 12-31 - During this...

    Monthly Long Trip: Best to Supercharge midway, Charge to 100% night before or go below 30%

    This is an interesting set of choices. I think it is best to look at ranking the options by how much "wear" each puts on the battery which contributes to range degradation. The worst option is to charge to 100% on a regular basis. With that said, 1 - 2 x per month is not a major concern. The...

    Alert for leaving phone (key) in car

    This has been a consistent issue for me. If I am driving with my phone on the charger I often forget to take my phone with me. It would be nice if there were an option for the forgetful drivers to enable an audible signal when the driver leaves the car and closes the drivers door with the phone...

    I asked my sales advisor. I haven't seen the car yet. I do believe the build date is on a sticker on the door frame.

    Ineligible for Tesla Return Policy if taking NY Rebate?

    This seems incorrect. The NYSERDA rebate program requires ownership of 36 months to be eligible. If the car is sold before 36 months then the owner is required to refund part of the rebate. Additionally, the dealer has 60 days after the sale to apply for the funds from NYSERDA. If Tesla...

    I was there yesterday. It appears 4 stations are still not operational and there are no bags or other indications that they are out of service. Use the 4 closest to the exit.

    Model Y Reservation Analysis (conjecture?)

    If you are looking for US delivery you probably can factor in some number of pre-orders are for Europe and Asia and will be moved to the end of the queue.

    New Y on configuration page.

    This just means that there is no estimated date. Once the MY starts shipping you will have an option to wait (indefinitely) or convert to a configuration that is scheduled for production. I don't have any idea what this would do to your place in line though.

    $7500 tax credit hurting low end EVs?

    Tax credit should sunset for all manufacturers as EV penetration reaches sustainable levels. Maybe when EV’s hit 5% of new car sales or some other metric common to all auto makers.

    We are moving and I am forced to choose between my two children, my Model S or my Model 3. Although I enjoy driving the 3 a little more than the S, I am selling the 3 as I need the hatchback option to travel with my dog. My loss is your opportunity!

    New York Rebate

    That is how the Federal Credit works. The NYS rebate is deducted from the cost of the car. Much better this way as you don't have to wait a year to recognize the credit!

    Driving to NYC (Brooklyn) from Boston for a few days...

    Several years ago I did a college trip to Boston with my S and chose the Kimpton Marlowe as there was a charger in the garage of the hotel. Today that is not so important. There are 3 Superchargers in Boston that you can easily access. In additon, there are numerous Superchargers between NYC...

    As I followed this thread I find it fascinating that ChadS's post was ignored! This post gets to the heart of the real issue. The EV Credit was intended to put EV's on a level playing field with ICE vehicles. If the government were serious about plugging a hole in the budget due to the new...

    What is the average cost to charge at home?

    There is no way to determine this. How far do you drive each day? What is your cost of electricity? Does it vary by time of day? If so, when do you charge? What is the temperature? Is it raining? The list goes on and on... That being said a good rule of thumb is to figure you will use...

    Academic Exercise - Effect of the end of Federal Rebate on M3 CPO pricing

    So you believe Tesla will lower the price of new M3's when the rebate expires? Don't you believe this would significantly eat into their margins?

    Academic Exercise - Effect of the end of Federal Rebate on M3 CPO pricing

    I have been trying to decide whether or not to wait and purchase a Dual Motor M3 and more likely than not forego the full federal rebate or to purchase an M3 as soon in Q1 2018 and take advantage of the rebate. This led me to think about what will happen to used M3 values in Q2 of 2019 when the...
