    Snippiness 2.0

    Sounds like a bunch of 12 yr old girls having an argument at a slumber party. At least most of them have grown up and have stopped playing video arcade games by the time they got their drivers licenses. But then this guy? is in California, so dont even get me started about all the wackadoodles...

    Tires nearly worn out, Pilot Sport All Season 4s or other decent choices?

    I just got a set of these and I like them. The only strange thing is that on the tire rack site the 245/45/18 has the exact same with and height dimensions as the 235s which doesn't make sense. I contacted Michelin and they said just check with the dealer. The 245s would have a better load...

    200 miles review: Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4

    Has anyone compared the Pilot Sport All Season to the PILOT SPORT 4S? I will never drive in snow since Im in South Florida. However I noticed the off-seasons have a 45,000 mi warranty while the sport 4S only has a 20,000 mile warranty. The All seasons also cost less, so I ordered them from...

    Supercharging now more expensive than ICE

    I charge at home about 80% of the time, and then about 10% at the local city chargers which are free if I am in the area, and then about 10% on superchargers for long road trips. I agree that the most economical and easiest way to do it is at home. I hope that once Elon opens up the...

    Texas Tesla Insurance - Cost Experience

    I have Progressive on my model 3 and my Lotus Elise and only pay about $600 every 6 months for coverage. I could get the Elise covered for less with Geico, but then I would lose the two-car discount with Progressive. I signed up online and pay my bill in full so I get an extra discount so that...

    Supercharging now more expensive than ICE

    I live in South Florida and the supercharger around me on Riviera Beach used to have time of day pricing. Recently they changed it so it's always around 43 since all the time. However there are other chargers in the area that are still time of day. Does Tesla look at the volume of supercharging...

    Extension Cord Sidewalk Push Back

    If you are really good friends with people across the street with a garage, ask if you can plug your charger into an outlet in their garage and then park your car in front of their garage door and charge at night or at times when it wont matter if their car would be blocked in the garage. The...

    Huge supercharger price increase

    I'm in So FL and just noticed that the price for supercharging in the area went up. Some places charge different rates depending on the time of day, and some in No FL charge the same rate regardless of the time of day and both prices went up. But Florida Power and Light raised up their...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Anyone know why the Ukrainian air force haven't bombed Moscow to get back at Putin? If 40 million Ukrainian citizens waved white flags and walked up to the 40 mile long convoy and said they want to surrender, it would be over a million people per mile. How would the Russians handle that? Or if...

    Blinking red T on mobile charger

    I had the same issue but once I replaced the outlet in the wall it stopped getting hot and giving me the error message. Prior to that, I brought the unit to the service center and they tested it and said it was ok. I just have the cheap Home Depot outlet, but will be replacing it with one of the...

    Mobile App update shows new info but you need to log out first

    Here is what it says when I click on Sign Off. Might be something with the settings on my phone? In any case it's no big deal since I keep the key card in my wallet in case my phone battery ever goes dead.

    Supercharger - Stuart, FL

    Is the Port St Lucie charger off of 95 near 5 Guys being redone? Someone posted that they went there last week and new superchargers we're being installed. If I go on trips I usually stop there on the way back. Just want to make sure that I stop further up if I'm coming down from the north.

    Mobile App update shows new info but you need to log out first

    I got a note that the Tesla app that is on my phone had an update a few weeks ago so I installed it and didn't notice anything. Then I saw on another site that the update showed more info about charging history and how much you charge and if it was at home or at a supercharger or at other...

    Found a quicker way to charge at home instead of using a standard outlet.

    I already installed the 14-50 plug and mistakenly thought most garage door openers used the 6-20 plug so that I could charge faster than a regular plug when visiting friends. The 5-20 doesn't change much faster than a regular outlet. For some reason they don't use heat pump water heaters or home...

    Found a quicker way to charge at home instead of using a standard outlet.

    Funny thing is that I have a 6-20 outlet in my garage but it's for a hot water heater. I think they changed the code and new ones have to be hard wired in. Most new water heaters are about 4500 watts and take more than 20 amps. I'm lucky that mine is 25 years old and still working.

    Found a quicker way to charge at home instead of using a standard outlet.

    You are correct. I was looking at the shape of the plug instead of the shape of the outlet. Thought that since the plug size was smaller, that it was 120 volts. Sorry for the confusion and my dyslexia at looking at pictures. At least I didn't order the plug today.

    Found a quicker way to charge at home instead of using a standard outlet.

    It's a 6-20 120 volt which is not 240. But according to the charts, it charges a lot faster than most of the 15 amp 120 volt plugs

    Found a quicker way to charge at home instead of using a standard outlet.

    Just noticed that my garage door opener is plugged into a 6-20 outlet in the ceiling. I visit relatives and charge on the standard wall plug in their garage over the weekend on my Model 3 at about 3 mph of range. If I got the 6-20 adapter, I could unplug the garage door opener and use that...

    Charging Nema 6-20?

    Just noticed that I have outlets in my ceiling for garage door openers and that they are 6-20. Always thought it was a 5-20 plug. Since only one of the garage doors has an opener, I could have avoided putting in the 240 volt outlet and charged at about 15 mph instead of 30, which would have met...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    I don't like it that the trip odometer only shows full miles instead of 10/th of a mile. Also there are only 3 or 4 buttons that you can drag and drop. Trying to go between the radio and the online stations was a pain until I found out you have to use the one button and then pick something on...

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

    Elon will most likely wait until 2022 since he will be resident of Texas for that year. This way he saves by not paying the higher state tax rates in CA. .

    Tracking with the app...

    I was visiting my brother and let him use my car to go to the store and he didn't know I could monitor it. When he got back with it, I asked him why he went from 50 to 90 along one of the local roads. He said that he figured with all the technology that I probably was monitoring him. Told him...

    Update 2021.24.4 caused "USB Device Malfunction" error

    I was using a USB hub that allows you to plug in up to 3 devices. When I tried connecting the two phone power cords and a thumb drive with music, I got the error message. I kept a separate thumb drive plugged in to the other port for using Sentry mode. Tesla service said that even though some...

    I just got the mobile update so my screen on my phone app looks like the one posted above. A few days ago I had an update on the cars screen that gave me the car wash and other options. Did the mobile app screen just change today, or was I just late in getting it?

    Superchargers open to all other EVs later this year (2021)

    It would be nice if they would use the income from others charging at a higher cost to lower the price that Tesla Owners pay. Or even make it free for Tesla Owners. This would encourage other EV owners to buy Teslas when it came time to trade in or sell their existing EVs Sort of like a gas...

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    Is it possible to switch computers? Let's say someone has a totalled car with FSD. Could they take out the computer and put it into car that had 2.5 hardware and would it work? The owner of the totalled car already paid the 10k for it so if they own the hardware in the car, can't they just sell...

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    So if I have a July 2018 model 3 build with EAP and the 2.5 computer, I need to pay $1500 to update the computer and then pay for a subscription that only has the advantage of being able to recognize traffic lights. I already have Summon, Navigate on Autopilot, etc so it's not worth it to pay...

    San Lorenzo family blames Tesla Autopilot for crash that killed teen son: lawsuit

    Can I start a class action suit against all car makers on behalf of anyone who was gotten a speeding ticket for going 90 miles an hour? They know that the maximum limit is about 80 in the United States and about 70 in most states so why do they make cars that can faster than this causing us to...

    Supercharger - West Palm Beach, FL - Florida Turnpike Service Plaza

    I noticed on the app that the Riviera Beach Wawa charging station seems to only have 1 or 2 spaces available all day even around midnight and often has all stations in use. Are a lot of people getting off of the Turnpike and 95 to use this location or is it just locals charging there. Looks...

    Begging At Charging Stations?

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

    Anyone know if the new Wawa going up on Okochobee Blvd in West Palm will have superchargers? The service and sales building down the street from there doesn't have them and the Wawa in Riviera Beach is full most of the time.

    Which vaccine did you get?

    I'm scheduled for Saturday but the county website listed 2 vaccines that might be given. Don't know if it's because they don't know what they are getting yet or if they are giving people a choice. I just hope I dont faint like I usually do when they draw blood since needles freak me out.

    I joined this forum years ago but was mainly on the other one since this one had too many new posts to keep up with at the time. I am glad the other one is gone.

    Someone said "Tesla owners think they're better than everyone"

    I would have gotten back in the car and said sorry I 'll park somewhere else. But as I was backing up, I would have turned on the fart sound outside of the car, rolled down the window and yelled "You Stink!"

    Supercharger - Rutland, Vermont

    Drove by today and I saw they had everything installed but I don't know if it is working or not. Was driving thru the area on my way up from Florida and didn't have time to stop and try to charge. On my way back home or if I go into Rutland during the week I will check.

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

    It would be nice if they could put a supercharging station somewhere on Indiantown Road. I-95 and the turnpike both have exits there. They are putting an Aldi supermarket in where the Winn Dixie used to be and there's also a lot of restaurants in that shopping center so it might be a good...
