    Model Y won’t charge on supercharger

    On a road trip from Austin to Houston, I learned my Tesla Model Y would not charge at a supercharger, bad timing! I was able to get it into a service center but they weren’t able to fix it in time, so I had to leave it in Houston and will need to make the trip back once it’s fixed (6 hour...

    2022 MYP 100% charged =296 mile?

    Friends, I have a 2022 model y performance. I have about 1400 miles on it. Yesterday I charged to 100% due to a long trip today. The range says 296 miles. It is pretty close to 303 that Tesla says on Ads but is my battery deteriorated already? Or 303 is just an estimated and can vary? Thanks

    Hey everybody, I originally ordered the M3LR on 5/10. I had a change of heart yesterday and decided to change my order to the M3P. I talked to my SA and they told me that switching to the M3P would bump my delivery time up. I looked on Tesla's website and the delivery time for the M3P was...

    Significant loss in mileage

    Just curious if anyone has seen a massive loss in mileage lately? My Model Y (2020) was at 512km (318 miles) at 90% charge when I first got it in September. Now, it's down to 405km (252 miles) at 90%. The Tesla repair shop says that's completely within range of a normal battery. I call bullshit...

    Charging complete notifications

    I never seem to get any notifications from the app when charging is complete. I have both "charging interrupted" and "charging complete" set in my app. Is there any other way to get notifications via text (like through ifttt or teslascope) that I am not aware of?

    Tesla not charging, please help!

    Tesla to Tesla charging

This could be an easy problem solving for people running out of power and could probably fix your energy problem way faster than a power generator? I remember that at...

    Scheduled charging

    Oahu Charging Strategy - No home charger?

    I've got a carport 110v plug, but no EV charger. What is your strategy for that situation? I figure that I: 1. charge it at night to +/- keep up with commute demand, and 2. top it off from time to time at ??? when it falls behind or for extra driving, which I hope to do a fair bit. 3. Buying...
