Lose 2 Miles of range overnight?

New Model S owner and I noticed the miles of range drops 2 miles every night. What is drawing energy overnight? It's not something I'm concerned about, just wondering. We've had 85 degree temps in Florida and thought that energy is being used to cool the battery?

Pretty normal, and just the same as mine. MS is still keeping tabs on battery condition, keeps some antenna on in case your FOB comes near, and wakes up occasionally for other things, including ability for you or Tesla to reach it if you e.g use the Tesla App from your smartphone. Don't worry with it. If you want more info on this, do some searches on "Energy Saving", "Vampire Loss"... Many other threads on settings and this subject, but with your 24-hr drain, you likely have optimum settings already in place. Enjoy that MS!

It also charges the 12V battery when it wakes up. Like Bert says, it's perfectly normal.

Yeah...or perhaps one tap of the touchscreen to toggle between the two. Bjorn has it down when switching between the two but it seems like a lot of extra clicks just to toggle between the two numbers!
