    2022.16.3: should I update?

    So I’ll make this quick (don’t want to come off as impatient, as I know A LOT of people have been waiting in line for FSD). I got my 2022 Model X plaid on June 17th. Didn’t want to enable FSD as I wanted to enjoy the car (with no limits) for a few days. During that time it received a 2022.16.2...

    Multiple issues with my 2018 Model 3

    I received my Model 3 in June 2018, as one of the early deliveries in Canada. The car has been bullet proof, only issues I had back with those early cars was a noisy brake clip and axle nut that needed lube. I had to leave my car parked for a prolonged time (~ 4 months but it was moved to be...

    TeslaFi causing 540 vehicle server errors?

    Tesla has stated that this error is caused by too many requests to their API/vehicle over a period of time. When I turn off TeslaFi logging the error ceases to occur. Within 24 hours of re-enabling the logging from TeslaFi the error starts to occur in a regular cadence. This did not used to be...

    Generate V3 Refresh Token for API Authentication using Python

    There is already a nice little method on here using PHP created by MrTemple. I saw a few comments from people struggling to get it configured so I figured I'd document a simple step-by-step method using Python as an alternative. *NOTE: This guide assumes Python is not already installed and...

    Generate V3 Refresh Token for API Authentication

    Tesla has changed how they do authentication (referred to now as v3). Every app and site that uses the API has to be updated. And if you don't want to give apps/sites your Tesla.com credentials (which you shouldn't, no matter how much you trust them, because they can always be hacked with a...

    TeslaFi Stats - Is this consolidation a clue?

    As shown in the screenshot below there seems to be a consolidation of the vast majority of Tesla's on version 2020.48.12.1. Once all of the pending installs are done it will represent 97% of the fleet that TeslaFi tracks. I've never seen that high a percentage for a particular firmware version...

    TeslaFi Sleep Setting

    The TeslaFi sleep settings did not initially make sense to me. When I finally puzzled them out, this is how I was able to explain it. Hopefully this explanation also helps others who may be confused: While in Idle... ...will poll vehicle 1/min (the Polling Time While Idle value) [polling...

    Teslafi Vampire Drain

    I had Teslafi set up with default settings but no polling between 2400 and 0500. I fully charged my M3 before driving to Birmingham airport leaving it with a respectable 210 miles range showing - I thought easily enough to get me home after some ‘vampire drain’ over my 8 days parking. As...

    How long is too long to leave heat running while charging?

    I live in Canada where average morning temps will be - 30 for about a month soon. Started using Teslafi, cool program, I can set my car to start heating up at 6:30, it uses a bit of battery and by 7:15 (in - 5, haven't tested - 30 yet) the car is warm and fully charged. Does anyone know how...

    TeslaFi Alive and Supported?

    Are the TeslaFi people still alive and answering questions? I asked some questions a week or so ago without an answer. I have not signed up for a trial yet, but I hope that doesn't keep them from replying.

    Teslafi tips for new users

    It seems to me that there's a lot of value for a Tesla owner to automate things and set actions. But it requires a third party app or teslafi to do it. Examples immediately obvious to me (I'm new to this) are around charging, eg I have set mine to revert to an 80% charge limit every afternoon...

    Teslafi Model 3 - asleep vs offline

    Presently (9 august 2019) my tests with Model 3 (from 28 feb. 2019) show that when parking, the car can go "offline" or rather when letting Teslafi doïng an effort to get the car "asleep" it might several times not falł "asleep" but go "offline" instead. Once it is "asleep" or "offline" you can...

    TeslaFi or Not? That is the Question

    My wife and I are getting a new AWD Model 3 next Tuesday in KC. Last the real question I have is “Should I get TelsaFi?” It’s my wife’s car and family car for driving. She’s not real tech savvy, but she can do some things. Is the service worth it? What does it do beyond the Tesla app? Thanks for...

    A few months back I started playing around with a tracking website for my new Model S and it's turned into quite a hobby for me. I would like to open the site up to other users but I need a few cars to test before opening it everyone. Unfortunately I don't have any friends that own a Model S...
