    Energy Consumption Graph - What does the Gray Line Represent?

    I found this in the Owner's Manual: Trip: If your Model S is equipped with navigation, you can monitor the amount of energy being used while navigating to a destination. You can track actual usage against the initial prediction. The green line represents the actual usage whereas the gray line...

    Energy Consumption Graph - What does the Gray Line Represent?

    Does anyone know what the gray line represents in this Energy/Trip graph from a recent trip I took?

    Charging issues at home after a storm

    I'd call the power company and ask them to install a logging monitor (on a temporary basis) to see if you're getting clean power 100% of the time. I had a situation that turned out to be a corroded neutral wire on the feed line from the street transformer into my house. It was really...

    Was your Tesla SC able to diagnose the problem?

    Took my first long(ish) trip today. Observations, and a question

    When your battery is depleted down that low you definitely want to get it on a charger as quickly as possible.

    Weird Sound coming from MCU

    I had exactly the same experience yesterday for the first time in my 2015 S. Sounded like the fan in the MCU was over-revving. Resetting the MCU cured it, at least for the time being. I have a 10 second video clip, but can't figure out how to upload it here to TMC.

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    One in Miami would also be useful to relieve the sometimes crowded Plantation SC. My wife and I made a quick trip to Miami last month from St. Petersburg (Sun.-Tues. around noon), and in both directions there were 2-3 cars waiting for stalls. Can only get worse when the Model 3's start arriving...

    The Tesla App is taking longer to connect to my car

    I've seen this problem from time to time. Last time it happened the app was trying to connect to the car via Brighthouse Network's hot-spot Wi-Fi service. No go. When I switched Wi-Fi off on my iPhone, the app connected to the car right away via LTE.

    Paint Guard in South Florida? and paint repair question

    I've had my Deep Blue Metallic 70D for almost a year now, and Tesla has never had touch-up paint in stock for it. So I ordered a small bottle from drcolorchip.com. It matches perfectly.

    Which Dash Cam To Get?

    I'll echo what others have noted in this thread. I purchased a Street Guardian model SG9665GC from Pier28, and couldn't be happier with the camera and the support they provide. I have mine tapped into the rearview mirror area (constant power)...

    new Midnight Silver Metallic touch up paint not available

    Dr. Colorchip mixed some deep blue metallic for me and it was spot on. So if they can do it, don't understand why Tesla can't.

    Clearplex on windshield causing chattering wipers?

    And don't forget this warning found in the Owner's Manual: "Caution: Do not use windshield treatment fluids. Doing so can interfere with wiper friction and cause a chattering sound".

    TeslaLog.com - Your hosted Tesla Data Logger - Announcement / Support threads

    @mochouinard you've obviously spent a lot of time figuring out how to read & interpret the Tesla data. Thanks very much for doing this. The data and graphs are very insightful, and will certainly get even better as time goes by and additional data is collected. Keep up the good work!

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    Does any one know where to purchase a -2- pin "Y" / "Tee", connector to tie into the stock -2- pin Tesla wiring in the trunk? (-1- male to -2- female)? Since installing Pete's new units in my trunk I no longer have a power supply for previously installed LED strip lights.

    Floor Mats Poll

    I bought Lloyd Mats (TruBerber) for front and & rear. Their rear mats do not fit properly in the newer Model S with NextGen seats, possibly because the clearance underneath the passenger seat has been reduced. When you move the passenger seat towards the back, it causes the mat to bunch up...

    Lloyd Luxe mat issue ?

    This is the Lloyd TruBerber rear mat. The photo shows that when the passenger seat is pushed all the way back, it causes the rear carpet to bulge. When the passenger seat is somewhat forward (towards the front of the car), the Lloyd mat slides under the front seat, rests flush up against the...

    Lloyd Luxe mat issue ?

    I have seen several posts indicating that the rear dimensions might have changed with the introduction of NextGen seats. I bought Lloyd's mats, and the rear one puckers up when the front seat is moved all the way back. I contacted the vendor in late August, who in turn contacted Lloyd's. The...

    A Plea from an Old Guy - Larger FONTS!

    I think the point here is why did Tesla spend time and man-hours on something that turned out as mundane as the new clock, while overlooking the degradation they introduced with the new 'look and feel' of the 7.0 UI.

    Argh - touch up paint still backordered for months

    I just received this message from the Tesla Online Order dept. Doesn't sound like they are at all interested in stocking touch-up paint. Hard to understand how this fits the bill of "good customer service".

    Vendor We are now carrying AlloyGators for your Tesla

    I was the first to have Pete install AlloyGators on my new Tesla back in June'15. It was well worth it! The car is wider than my previous ride, and it took some serious getting use to, to prevent rubbing the wheels against curbs (especially when parking at the end of a lot, and sometimes in...

    A Plea from an Old Guy - Larger FONTS!

    I am an old guy having trouble reading some of the data on the new V7 UI. The font size needs to be enlarged, especially for the Trips app, as well as the newly redesigned Energy display (which I really don't like). Tesla, hope you're listening to your customers.
