Seems likely notwithstanding the various other caveats outlined earlier that the law will allow you to install a higher speed outlet (14-50 or whatever; there are actually lots of options you can go with that would be better than a 5-15 outlet - or you can go Wall Connector route, etc. Topic for another timemany other threads on this; first thing is to clear install with HOA for your situation, in line with California law).its a townhome and my garage has a 12v plug in
The assumptions for my number were:I think I’m at a bit under 10 cents a mile on my performance.
Factor in the 3 oil changes at 100-120 a pop I now avoid (was needing 6 quarts of mobile 1 synthetic plus filter and labor)... I’m saving like 2k-2500 a year
No, that's not correct. That number was on the charts back on the old original inefficient pig of a Model S back in 2012. For some reason when Tesla was updating all of their charging speed tables for the much more efficient Model 3, they updated every single number in the table except that 3, which is now incorrect.A 120v wall socket will give you about 3 miles of added range per hour plugged in.
Yep. Assuming 200W of overhead on a 1440W outlet ([email protected]), with 91% efficient AC/DC conversion to pack (just very rough estimates here: this means overall efficiency of 1240*0.91/1440 = 78% at this charge wattage; would be roughly 89% at [email protected] with same assumptions, and 88% with the [email protected] UMC (matches EPA test value)):No, that's not correct.

The Model 3 will get at least 5, maybe more like 5.5 mph on a regular 120V outlet.
If you can't charge at home, it's not going to be as cheap and convenient. Can and do people make it work? Sure, but it will require sacrifices.Hi everyone so I recently made a order on a model 3 performance and wanted know if ownership worth it due to not having a tesla charger at home my garage has a 120v outlet
and I’m 6 miles away from supercharger and not sure how much it cost to use a supercharger I recently sold my 2019 Dodge Charger scat pack due to gas and other issues would really like honest advice if it worth me to take delivery of a tesla.
