Hi all, my vampire drain increased dramatically when I moved to 32.31, and still exists with my recent upgrade to 32.31.1.

it went from 2-3 mi per day to more than 10! Energy saving still on, sentry mode still off. As is parked in a cool garage that never leaves the 60-70 degree range. I have not driven in 5 days and have lost about 50 miles. Anyone else see this?

The additional vampire drain will cause premature death of your 12v. Funny how Tesla doesn't disclose this anywhere. Adding features that will increase owners' maintenance costs should come with a disclaimer. Tesla is not acting ethically here, but I suppose that is nothing new.

Don't think it's about ethics, like, they are trying to kill our batteries. I think it's sloppy development and testing.
