    12-volt battery: Proactive fix (Replacement)

    I was on 12 volt battery number 4 when Tesla took my car back. There is no DIY that I was able to find. No one would touch the car,

    Tesla Lemon Model S owner Rebuttal to Tesla's Blog Post

    I am not keen about replying to Tesla's anonymous post. If I don't reply, I assumed to be wrong. If I do reply, I will be attacked by many of Tesla's fans who will never let the facts get in the way. I do know that my issues with my Tesla and how Tesla is treating me are not unique. There are...

    Hotel charging in Green Bay, WI?

    Call and ask if they have a 120 volt outlet you can use. 3 miles per hour (about 1 kWh). 75 miles per day. But with 200 miles to nearest SC, I would take a ICE, unless I was in GB for at least 3 days. Get PlugShare and you will find a few level 2 chargers. Like I said, take an ICE.

    Cold battery means not so super supercharge

    I have used a 120v outlet for months. It works quite well even in subzero weather. I have parked at friend's home, plugged into 120v and gone to bed. Next day, I have 1 kWh or 3 miles per hour. Battery is semi warm. Much easier than going to a SC with a cold battery. - - - Updated - - - It...

    Storage recommendations and battery charging while away

    I would worry. My UMC failed while I was gone and if I had not checked I would have come home to a bricked battery.

    Should we picket dealerships?

    It would hurt all the folks who work at the dealer, so it is a "stupid" idea.

    Carbon Tax

    Only the rich have the money to "trade". The poor never will. The rich get richer and the poor stay poor. Also, I would never suggest that money would be transferred from the poor to the rich. The poor have no money to be transfered, that is why they are poor.

    Carbon Tax

    If you haven't been following the debate surrounding capping and trading emissions, you're missing out. Not only does it have implications for how our nation — and the world — produces energy; it has the potential to offer a myriad of opportunities for well-informed investors. According to a...

    firearms storage

    Best approach is to ignore the haters who might not want to give a serious answer. Just don't reply to their posts and they will go away. Your question is legitimate. Ignore those who are "intolerant" of those with whom they don't agree. Just my opinion.

    Excellent point. - - - Updated - - - I agree. Not a big deal. But for a person who does "know" the area, it is a pain. Getting to the HP SC is a nut roll for anyone who does not know the area.

    Not at all. Running out of juice is never a good thing. If you are driving up 94 and don't want a side trip to HP, then it all makes sense.

    Do you get snow at this spot? If you do, do you need to use snowplows? I see no way to plow the areas around the SC at this location.

    Model S Faster then a new Corvette.

    0-60 mph is fun, but dive into a corner at 140 mph and the Corvette will beat any model S. Do it 20 times in a row and the MS will simply not be able to stay on the track as the MS brakes will be too hot. And the MS motor/inverter will overheat after one lap. The C7 can do 1/4 mile runs all day...
