    i have been working with my local service center to fix an issue where computers in the car are staying in when they shouldn't be. We have gotten the car down to under ten miles per night loss. How much loss are you currently seeing on v8.0. I have a P85.


    I read a post from 2014 where someone pulled the fuse for the 12v cabin rail. What all is on that circuit? It seems to have made a difference in nightly losses.

    Mine was a bit excessive until I switched off TeslaLog. I am back down to 1% a night loss

    I read where the vampire drain is more prominent in the 85 models than the late models released in 2016. Is this accurate?

    My S85 loses about 1.2 kWh/day or between 3-6 rated miles.

    My p85+ loses anywhere from 5-12 miles OVERNIGHT. Raised it with SC and they said that's normal up to 15 overnight depending on temp..which was sorta laughable given where I live .. :/

    I plug mine in every night. So I have never noticed. I think I'll check. 15 mi overnight seems rediculous.

    A normal wake cycle will consume roughly 600 Wh of battery. This number is retrieved directly by integrating my pack power draw over a 3 hour wake cycle using CAN. It may be higher if the pack heater comes on.
