    Is anyone else seeing a lot of vampire loss overnight with the recent updates?

    I'm observing 2-3% loss overnight. This is in moderate temperatures (50s) with power saving ON, always connected ON, preconditioning OFF. 2+ KWh seems like a LOT of power to keep the cellular radio on and the computers on standby.

    I saw this kind of behavior before but it had gotten better until a month or so ago.

    I see about 5 or 6% SOC loss (85 kWh pack) every 24 hours. That is more than double what I saw when the car was new, but it started getting high like this at least 1.5 to 2 years ago.

    3-6 rated miles per 24 hours is normal for mine. All energy saving options checked.

    I see this as well, but imho it is still very high. Way to high!

    Car seems to go to sleep much less nowadays.

    I see a noticeable increase in depletion! Anything you bring to the service centers attn is like talking to a wall.. hope they figure out the root cause!

    revisiting this thread, I just returned from a trip and the car lost 8-10 mile per 24 hours while parked at the airport. I am not running anything that polls the cars, on 17.26.17. to me this level of loss is way too high and unacceptable.

    Check your cabin overheat selection in settings. Depending on where you live, this can have a huge impact on losses while parked. After shutting mine off, I only lose ~2 miles in 24 hours, Arizona.

    Cabin overheat is the culprit in my case. I live in Arizona and can lose 13 miles in less than 24 hours while the car is garaged, if you can believe that. Turning it off reduces that to 5 miles or less.
