    I want to do a little YouTube video about energy consumption comparing a Model S and a Model 3. There is plenty of data out there, but it's always apples vs oranges because the driving conditions are not the same. So I thought let's do a real side by side drive with both cars. If anyone with a Model 3 living in Orange County is up for this, let me know.

    I'm about 10 minutes away from you, with a delivery date on 8/30. Could lend a hand if I'm available.

    When you find someone to test the cars, it'd be nice if you could both supercharge to full, drive whatever route, record the displayed energy consumption, and then supercharge to full again to get a second measurement of the energy used.

    I'm not in a rush. Whenever is fine. Maybe an hour driving and 20 min shooting some footage for the intro and ending.
