Usually I get to work with around 12 miles remaining. I usually switch to range mode when I reach 30 miles . remaining. Whenever I press range mode now I only get 19 addional miles. So that 12 miles remaining is displayed once I open the charge door, it switches back to standard. I charge in standard always.
Thanks, interesting. Do you have a rationale for switching to Range Mode at 30 miles remaining as compared to say, 18-20 miles? (That is the point where my 1.5 automatically switches into low power mode)
Are you considering buying the other yet-to-be-released components of the 3.0 upgrade; the aero mods, new wheel bearings, brake drag reduction mods, and new tires, so you can get more range?
Wow DNA4Life. That is a lot of driving. I hope you are logging your battery health on the Roadster owners battery survey. Plug In America I think there is only one other who has passed that magic mark.
I called Tesla inquiring about a refurbished 1.5 battery in case I wanted to get my 189 miles back on a a full standard charge. I was told the battery would be $35,000 if I was to do it now, but Tesla is working on re-adjusting Roadster parts prices. So if I wait the price may be different and did not know when the new prices would be available. This price makes NO sense at all to me when Tesla is producing a car that will go 200 miles for $30K and the fact that the 3.0 upgrade will give you 400 miles and it's $29K. Where do they come up with these #'s
