    Need to drive at 131% efficiency to achieve advertised range.

    I think this is due to Tesla software updates and not SR+ vs LR. My LR AWD which I got in October 2018 pretty much always showed 499km*percentage SOC until some software update around last summer (2019) when it went downhill. But on Teslafi I can see I match the average for currently existing LR...

    HW3 Upgrade

    It should be available in Canada for recent releases of the tesla system software. But they should have loaded up the latest firmware during the upgrade. Do you have MCU1? I wonder if it's still not released for MCU1...

    There's an FSD visualization option you have to enable to see stop signs, lights, etc.

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    But how far can you go on that 141km? Doesn't that change? Depending on how cold it is you might only get 100km or less in winter and might actually make 141km in summer. From -20C to +30C my efficiency varies from 50% to 98%.

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    Are you saying you can't drive more km per full charge now than in winter?

    This pdf seems to suggest Canadian Tire will host an electrify Canada fast charger in Brockville.

    HW3 Upgrade

    Got the car back. Everything was reset (all settings, profiles, etc.) except for keycards, fobs and phone keys. Edit: Can see all the new visualizations for lights, etc. Autopilot still calibrating.

    HW3 Upgrade

    Dropped my car off at Oakville SC this morning. Drive in and drop off keys on a desk they set up and walk away. Waiting area seemed to be open and they asked if I was going to stay but I went home. Will update when I get the car back as to whether everything was reset or not.

    is 2020.12 software update available for Canadian model 3?

    I got 2020.12 yesterday in Oakville Ontario. Model 3 AWD.

    Booked for next Thursday the 26th at oakville. My last 3 appointments got cancelled but those times it booked mobile service. Hopefully this time it sticks.

    Apparently 2020.8 update could bring visualizations to Canada/Europe/Etc.

    HW3 Upgrade

    I don't have HW3, but a similar thing happened to me on my last trip to Montreal. I think it was salt or dirt blocking the front radar, and washing off the front bumper fixed it. My theory is it was bad enough to prevent autopilot intermittently, but not so bad as to give the blocked/blinded...

    SR+ rear heated seats purchased through the app

    Depending on how many road trips you take and where, range is still a big difference. I drive to Montreal and Ottawa often enough and in winter it would be rough without the extra range (and it would mean extra stops even in summer). Though once Brockville supercharger comes online it'll be...

    HW3 Upgrade

    Tried to make another appointment. It was also cancelled. I'll just wait it out. Only wanted to get it now because I'm sure there'll be a huge backlog once features are released...

    HW3 Upgrade

    They may have the part. But it looks like some sort of automated response based on some pattern matching in the text of the request. As in it didn't get cancelled from Oakville but HQ, since I didn't hear from a specific person but got a generic form letter. I'll try booking another appointment...

    HW3 Upgrade

    I'm in Oakville pretty close to Oakville service center (I walked there the day I picked up my car). But the app booked me a mobile service appointment and then I got the text about not needing to book and I'll be contacted when they're ready. Still not 100% sure my mobile service is cancelled...

    HW3 Upgrade

    Tried to book an appointment through the app. Got an automated text saying they'd contact at a later time and no need to book it now... "Hello, All customers who purchased the Full Self-Driving package and do not have the Full Self-Driving Computer will receive the retrofit at no charge...

    A Better Route Planner - across Toronto

    I see the option to allow or not allow toll roads. I don't see an option that says use toll roads only if it saves more than X minutes, which is what I think @wayner wants (actually sounds like he might want a my time is worth $X per minute/hour option and the algorithm computes whether it's...

    How much range are you losing parked in subzero temps?

    At below 20% and below 10% SOC you get two different warning messages when putting it in park, warning you about potential cold weather effects on empty battery.

    HPWC for SR+

    Doesn't make any difference if it's hardware or software limit. If it's software the only plus side is they could software unlock it later. Unless they're software limiting the power into the battery rather than the ac/dc converter. That could theoretically be possible but doesn't make much...
  24. B

    HPWC for SR+

    Technically same architecture except the limit in amps is different. For example sr+ model 3 is 32 amps, LR model 3 is 48amps and also new model S and X and then older s and X are 72 or 80amps. Same applies to those just higher amp cutoff.

    Long Range Base Performance Model (18" wheels)

    You can order a stealth online now for the exact same price as the performance... So price increase I guess.

    i3 in Canada?

    I'm pretty sure it's lower than that at 1.6C and that can be disabled in settings. There's a second one at -10C and that can be disabled through hacking some fuses or something. @pcons would know the details.

    In Europe the superchargers have CCS and Tesla plugs side by side for old and new vehicles respectively.

    HPWC for SR+

    Yes that would be a possibility, if those systems could run on AC (as I mentioned). However as far as I know, everything in the car is either running off 12V DC or high voltage (300-400V) DC.
  29. B

    HPWC for SR+

    How? The AC to DC converter is 32 Amps on his car. That's the limit of how much can come from the wall into the car (battery or otherwise). Obviously the battery can take 170kW supercharging so the limit is not the battery but the charging circuit/AC/DC converter.
  30. B

    HPWC for SR+

    I haven't really looked into it. But I'd assume it's AC->DC and then that DC feeds both the battery and any load from the car, either charging only, charging and running any loads or discharging (though slower) and running any loads. Also setting the amps low and checking if it goes over might...
  31. B

    HPWC for SR+

    The car converts AC to DC. All the systems involved as far as I know run on DC. The AC to DC converter is 32A 240V on SR/SR+. So I don't see how it's going to provide more power, unless the preheating can run off extra AC power in parallel (edit: which I'm almost sure it can't).
  32. B

    HPWC for SR+

    Do you have a Sr+? They are limited to 32A about 7.5-8kw. LR is limited to 48A about 11-12kw.
  33. B

    HPWC for SR+

    No, 32A max from wall to car. It's not a limit of what can go into the battery as you can supercharge way faster.

    Disappointing Range on a New Model 3

    Haven't seen it too much this year. But last year it happened and you get a message on the screen saying battery is heating performance will improve as you drive.
  35. B

    Disappointing Range on a New Model 3

    It happens when battery temperature is below -7C. Target active heat is generally -7C when not plugged in.

    Disappointing Range on a New Model 3

    I think he is hyperbolically stating that it uses the same amount of total energy to go 12km as 50km since it's doing extra heating you mention at the start.

    A good way of measuring accurately KWH usage?

    I did some rough math looks like you had about 100 hours of high load and the rest is low. Average is 1.78kwh on low and 2.65kwh overall. If we assume the high drain hours also average 1.78kwh of low drain. Then you have roughly 1300kwh due to low drain stuff and 600kwh due to charging and...

    A good way of measuring accurately KWH usage?

    It will use cabin heating which maxes out at 7kw and goes down once cabin is warm to maybe 1kw. It also uses 3.5kw for RWD and 7kw for AWD to heat the battery depending on battery temperature. So something between 18a and even more than 48 amps (though not for long at that high) if battery isn't...
  39. B

    A good way of measuring accurately KWH usage?

    Looks like you have 48A charging. Nice! Do you schedule to start at a specific time or do you use the new departure schedule feature? That heats the cabin and battery and might be an additional draw, though I'm not sure it would explain everything. I haven't crunched the numbers but it looks...

    With all the Petro Can and CTC EV growth do I invest in a CHAdeMO?

    Also most CCS/chademo have 1 or 2 stations so if it becomes common for Tesla's to use them they will be overfull on Montreal/Toronto/Ottawa corridor.

    2020.4 Anything New?

    But they don't have teslacam? Right? Edit: didn't see the AP2.5 yes ok! (Thought it said 2)
  42. B

    A good way of measuring accurately KWH usage?

    Furnace when fan is running is maybe 0.5kw assuming it's gas. So having fan on all the time would be maybe 300-400kwh. Washer is pretty low. Dryer is maybe 6kw so 6kwh per hour of use. Ev charger is 15kwh a day as you said so 400-500kwh a month. Still missing half your usage.
  43. B

    A good way of measuring accurately KWH usage?

    @Zirak did the time of use data give any clues? What is the hourly draw at night and during the day when not charging? 1.5-2kw draw 24/7 plus car charging would do it. Mine is maybe 0.6kw at night. Edit: maybe you have a space heater plugged in somewhere you don't know about :p
  44. B

    A good way of measuring accurately KWH usage?

    I'm sad I don't get those anymore. I was always in the bottom 10% before, I'd probably be just under average to just over average now depending on how much I drive :)
  45. B

    A good way of measuring accurately KWH usage?

    I have a similar size house to OP and I used about 300-400kwh a month before getting an EV. I can charge at work for 4hours, but when I was driving a lot my max at home was about 1200kwh total, with probably 750-800kwh of that being charging the car (I think I did over 5000km that month, with...

    Battery heating when charging

    Yes. Definitely a bit annoying. I think they're trying to balance towards people wanting "warm" batteries and more regen, and not necessarily protecting the battery. I'm saying this since they warm the battery even further while preconditioning while plugged in (I think if you precondition long...

    Battery heating when charging

    Yes Scan my Tesla app and OBD2 cable + adapter. Also running heating/precondition while plugged in runs the battery heater to an even higher point now it seems.

    Battery heating when charging

    It seems the battery is heated past 10C now on model 3 while charging. It used to always only go to 10C and turn off battery heating and just warm while charging. I plugged in tonight at about 72% after 24 hours of cold soaking battery is now 12.5C and battery heater is running full blast...
