    I recently tried to charge my Model S to 100% as I was heading out on a road trip. When I got in the car, it had only charged to about 92%(232 miles).Has anyone else experienced this? Any home fixes anyone can offer?
    Thanks

    Did the display show 100%, or just 92%? I'm assuming charging was complete? When was the last time you charged to 100%? Reason I ask is that 100% is 100% of the module that can take the least amount of charge. If you haven't charged to 93% or more in a while, the balance circuits won't have kicked in and you may have an out of balance battery. If so, this will correct itself now that you did a 100% charge. It may take a few weeks to do so.

    How long had you been charging? Charging slows down considerably as it approaches 100%.

    It was charging overnight. App showed that it was full(charge stopped) at 2:49am. I have a GE watt station in my garage(24mph charge).

    It had been about 3 months since last 100% charge. it charged to 254 miles. Not too bad for a 2014 P85 with 60,000+ miles(I think).
