    Choosing A Tesla Home-charging Option

    Thank you for your thoughtful responses. Just to followup about future proofing. Most long range EVs seem like theyre 75-110 kWh batteries, but who knows if I or a future homebuyer might want to put in a 2nd EV, or even something bigger like the 200+kwh cybertruck battery, roadster (unlikely...

    Choosing A Tesla Home-charging Option

    For 50 amp charging at the plug, what is the benefit to asking the electrician to wire the circuit for 60A?

    Safety score broken

    That sounds more like a way to standardize FCW per trip or day for display purposes... but is the FCW score incorporated into the Safety Score by how you defined it above, or weighted by # events / miles driven?

    Supercharger - Metairie, LA

    Theyre up and running. 250kw. Chargers are on the north side of the supermarket. The actual stalls are set up so that they are closest to the car’s socket if you drive forward into the parking spot, rather than reversing into it. Kind of a wordy explanation, but i couldn’t get photos to upload.

    Tesla Model Y Glass Roof Sunshade

    to follow up, I purchase the version 2 kit (magnets + optional opaque sunshade). The magnets are a significant improvement over the version 1. It removes ~70-80% of the 'sag'. I guess I can't speak to the appearance, it looks fine to me but I don't have to see it from the driver's seat...

    High C question.

    Unrealistic hypothetical question here. Suppose you run down a Tesla battery at 2C over 30 minutes. The first time, you do so by setting a constant rate of discharge over the 30 minutes. The second attempt, you discharge intermittently at 6C over 30 minutes, but average 2C over the 30...

    Regular 50kwh charging

    I agree with jcanoe... I'm not an expert, but I've only heard the factors that degrade battery life (maximum State of Charge) over time are: high temps (like battery preheating for supercharging), keeping the battery long term at very high or low State of Charge (%), and charging/discharging...

    recommendation request: interior cleaning products with no shine?

    I went to a local detailer for the first time last month. Car is 6 months old. Leather surfaces are very shiny, like they hosted an oil wrestling championship levels of shine. Maxxspider mats are now frictionless. Zero traction. These are not exactly the results I was looking for. Was hoping...

    Consumption Data

    250 Wh/km (400 Wh/mi) is a lot. I'm getting 250 wh/mi in city>hwy mix at 40 degree temperatures. Check your short and long range consumption graphs, maybe there's a pattern where most of the peak use is. Rain, rough asphalt, colder weather I've noticed increase consumption. Aero covers seem...

    Scared to go to the carwash

    Another option is to find a true "touchless" car wash, the kind which uses only sprays. I've heard these use slightly more caustic cleaning agents. Or a mobile detailer, maybe.

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    I'm at 3500 miles. Just installed and ran ScanMyTesla for the 1st time. I know from the graphs that there is an initial fall in battery degradation before it stabilizes... at what miles does that fall take place and whats a reasonable range for that fall?

    Charging fault at supercharger

    On a recent round trip, there was a specific SC station where there would be a fault when connecting. After retrying charging would start, but had weird charge behavior. It would ramp up to 30-40kW, then go back to 0, and then cycle back and forth, indefinitely. It was a huge pain. 20 min...

    Range efficiency: Spec vs Reality

    Is the chart accurate? I dont think the EPA range was 326 for the MY LR until it was increased later in 2020. Those test runs were in summer. Not that it makes a difference, 253 is disappointing at either EPA range. But not unexpected

    Tesla making CCS adapter for fast charging interface

    Only for some of the states and if you're a member. For a lot of the western states at the per kWh rate, 50kwh is $20+. Even as a member its $15.50. Depending on how slow the trip is (lets say 200 mi @ 250wH/mi, that's getting close to gas $.

    Phantom Braking

    In retrospect, a few of these may have been Autopilot going off throttle rather than actually braking. Not sure as it happened quickly.

    How do I tell if charging issues are from the SC or the car?

    At least one of the 50% max charge sessions started with SoC @ mid 20%, 250kW capable station. At least a few others in that category started at 20-30% SoC, most were 150kW capable SC's

    Phantom Braking

    I am not on the new beta of FSD yet. Not sure if they are updating the old FSD at all. Is phantom braking relatively more common with pickup trucks towing open trailers? Had several instances yesterday on a trip.

    How do I tell if charging issues are from the SC or the car?

    Did the car's first long distance trip using superchargers. At one of the SC's (150KW max), charge maxed out at 30KW, but fluctuated between 0 and 30KW every 10 seconds. I think I averaged 15kW. Other cars seemed to charge slow but still faster than mine. On 50% of the other SC's on route...

    Lane Positioning for Autopilot/Autosteer

    Have a question... On US highway right-hand lanes, when these merge with on-ramp lanes, but if there is a short segment where there are no right side lane markers, I notice Autopilot briefly drifts rightward. It then corrects itself when the right lane marks re-emerge. It hasn't actually done...

    Battery drains 3% within 24 hours

    When you check the app while the car is garaged, does it wake the car from sleep? Check randomly a couple of times over 24 hours. Only other longshot suggestion is to run a charge to 91% (IIRC) to recalibrate BMS. Just once, unless you prefer this charge level. Then see what Tesla service says

    What would you give up?

    The pneumatic assist rear trunk wouldn't stop the trunk from hitting a low ceiling. Pressing the button or resisting movement of the motorized hatch does a pretty good job preventing that. Ventilated seats would be nice.

    Rear Trunk 12V accessory power socket

    Does anyone know the continuous and peak amp rating of this socket? The manual lists the center console socket as 12 amp continuous, 16 amp peak. But curiously there is no mention of the rear 12V socket in the manual at all.

    Preventing “stretch marks” / seat cracks
