    So this is what 3rd-party dealers do to P-series Tesla vehicles; enjoy!

    First off, a little context... According to CarFax, my P85D has been in possession with the third-party dealership I bought it from for only 23 miles of driving. How do I know this? Well, I asked the salesperson to take a picture of the SoC and mileage upon first inquiring about the car and...

    Idea: Incentive to buy Solar Panels perhaps?

    I love flooring my Model 3, but using 450 W/mi (at times) leaves me feeling guilty. Having no solar panels yet (SRP in Az victim), I'm basically pulling dirty power from the grid for my thrills. Maybe this unlimited acceleration will be gone someday should the EPA clamps down on EV efficiency...

    I think my car is lying to me...

    So try to follow along with this napkin math. I'm going to define some well known facts to start: A. 90D pre-refresh nominal capacity 85.8kwh B. 90D pre-refresh usable capacity 81.8kwh C. 4kwh brick protection, cannot use (A minus B) D. Watts per mile used to calculate EPA rated range for...
