    Slider for charge percentage not accurate?

    I observed this when the ambient temperature falls below 30F. When charging from 50% to 80% using the app, the scroll bar when it hits the grid bar it shows 79%, but as the car start charging it recovers to 80%, but towards the end of the charging session it shows 81%. In addition to this, there...

    Autosteer oscillation during curves on 2019.40.50.1

    It could be due to different pressures in the 4 tires. I had this issue before the 2019.40.50.1 update. There was a 3 psi difference between the left and right set of tires. The car would oscillate all the time, albeit very subtle movement, but when there is a curve or an while passing an exit...

    My cost to charge in a NY winter

    So difference between 367 Wh/mi (noted from trip meter) and 619 Wh/mi is 252 Wh/mi which includes: Batter preconditioning Cabin preheat Vampire loss Sentry mode (if not used, zero, else 10% of battery per day?) Other (may be negligible) My question is, which of the above options is causing...

    My cost to charge in a NY winter

    (275-300) Wh/mi to > 500 Wh/mi! Highly unlikely. (a) Preheat battery and preheat cabin are two different things. I agree that the car will always preheat the battery in winter. What I meant was I don't preheat the cabin (I should have been more clear about it). (b) Based on my energy meter...

    My cost to charge in a NY winter

    I don't preheat. But I do plan such that my charging ends right before I start driving in the morning. I park in a garage both at home and work, since OP parks outside, preheat might be needed. It did snow in the last month.

    My cost to charge in a NY winter

    Your Wh/mi is high, possibly because you take short trips. I am in Michigan, LR AWD with temperatures b/w 10F and 30F last month, 70 miles round trip, I get between 275 to 300 Wh/mi.

    Windows venting on their own?

    Update to my earlier post in this thread. I had the "close" issue for an entire week. I kept hitting the "close" button to change to "vent", after few minutes it would show "close" again. I checked it by standing next to the car, the windows were definitely closed. I was looking at winter...

    Regenerative braking in Autopilot?

    While on autopilot, on the screen, you can see the bar below the speed number go back and forth between black (using battery) to green (regen) while slowing down.

    Battery Degradation

    I am not convinced that the difference between the in app battery % and the API parameters reported to the third party is due to the phantom/vampire drain caused by weather changes. I always observed the difference towards the end of the charge cycle, which should not be effected by battery...

    Battery Degradation

    I also noticed the 1% difference between what the tesla apps shows and what teslamate (another tracking tool) shows. This may be due to API changes from the tesla's end?

    Windows venting on their own?

    An update. Today the car was parked in a parking lot, 20F outside temperature, locked, sentry mode on, I saw the "Close" icon instead of the "Vent" icon. I check the car, all the windows were closed. I clicked the "Close" icon, the windows make the sound as if closing the closed windows and the...

    Range question - how does traffic effect range when travelling long distances?

    Based on this, a 2019 LR AWD 18" Aero hubcap is rated at 417 miles when driven at a constant 55mph. So the slower you drive (due to traffic), the higher will be your range. Though as suggested above, AC will eat up your range the longer you use it. Use the energy graph while driving to get a...

    Windows venting on their own?

    I had this issue couple of times so far. Few days back I saw the icon in teslamate showing the window was open while parked at home. I checked the app, the option for "close" showed up. I didn't think much of it and hit close without checking the car. Today when at work, 32F outside parked...

    Very interesting battery observation

    1) Too few data points to make any conclusion. Several other factors could effect and there might as well be no trend with just random fluctuations.

    Mobile Ranger Service in Colorado

    Vacation Charging.

    I don't know what caused the 1-2% discharge per 24hrs, but I assume it is normal for the TM3. From what I read through this and other electric car forums, lithium-ion batteries are recommended to be at 30-50% capacity for long term storage. By keeping the limit to 50% and plugged-in, I ensured...

    Vacation Charging.

    For a week of vacation, I charged the car to 80%, changed the limit to 50%, left the car plugged in and disabled all settings to reduce vampire drain and left. During the vacation, I checked the car only couple of times to avoid waking it up, thus also reducing the battery drain. I lost 1-2% per...

    Charged past the limit that i set

    I observed this few times on my LR AWD. Usually what happens is, I start charging early morning when it is cold, it charges to 80% based on the set limit, I get a notification that it is done charging to 80%. Then few hours later, when the temperature gets warm outside, it shows it charged to 82...

    Autopilot: swinging left and right

    As mentioned in the OP, I checked using a pressure gauge, all tires read 49psi. However, the TPMS on the screen shows a higher number for the front passenger side tire. The rear driver side tire was replaced because the acoustic form came loose.

It was replaced at the tesla service center. Couple of days after the installation, the car started swinging left and right in autopilot...

    Can't charge at home. Optimal charging habits?

    Others might chime in with more info. Following is what I learned through this forum. Charge above 90% SOC only when planning for long trips. 80% SOC seems is be the general consensus. When parking outside all the time, be mindful of sentry mode, as it eats up the battery quickly compared to...

    Slow charging on NEMA 14-50: any advantages?

    Would there be any benefits to charging slow (lowering the Amps in the car) on a NEMA 14-50 capable of drawing 32 Amps? My commute is very predictable every day and charging my M3 LR AWD takes about 2-3 hours to reach 80% SOC. I tried 2 other approaches while charging with NEMA 14-50 at 32...
