I kinda want to take a poll to find out how often people charge their Teslas. I know Tesla wants users to charge everyday, but I've been doing it 2-3 days depending on my driving. I'm so used to thinking the fact to drain the battery to around 20% and then charge to 80-90%.

Keep the car plugged in when you can and let the battery management system manage the battery. Nothing has changed over the four years that this topic has been discusssed at length. You may want to search the past threads.

Has been discussed a few times already. For example, see 'Keep it plugged in or let run down?' thread.

tl;dr - A happy Tesla is a plugged in Tesla.

Thank you both! Sorry about that, I should've searched in the previous threads.
