    Do you find that with snowy conditions and I suspect slower average speed that the Aero covers make a diffference?

    I'm not sure. I have not been tracking the difference with Aero covers. Headwinds and speed are what make the most noticeable difference.

    Aero covers will make a slight difference on the highway. It'll move you from 130Wh/km down to 110-125Wh/km. However, I notice that it leaves marks/light scuffs on the stock rims :(

    Thanks for the information. Sounds like the covers do have a benefit. I don't have my car yet (hopefully next week or two) but my understand is that if you are taking off / putting on the aero covers you need to keep the clamps on the cover clean plus where those clamps mate on the wheel clean in order to prevent/reduce scuffs.

    It's not the clamps that leave the scuffs. It's where the points of the holes end and there's a small contact point to the rim. Dusts/debris/salt gather here and leaves a dull scuff. Not noticeable unless you're detailing and reveal the smooth finish on the rest of the rim. Not a huge deal for day to day use.

    Is this normal? On a charge of 98% doing 105 km/hr speed at approx. 5 degrees Celsius, I’m only getting approx. 350 km range. At 115 km/hr it’s down to about 300 km range.

    I have a LR RWD with 18”.

    If your heater is runing (presumably since it's 5C outside) then yes, it's pretty normal. That's actually around 220 wh/km efficiency which is typical in those temps. When it gets down to below zero it will settle to around 250-275 wh/km depending on what you set the heater temp to.

    SR+
    5,525 km
    126 Wh/km

    Even with recent almost 0 degree temps, I find if I charge 10% in the morning before work (from 70-80% soc) my commute is typically sub 120 Wh/km. I’m summer it was low 90’s.

    Even with occasional trips with heat I’m seeing 143 Wh/km. Be interesting to see what happens when it drops to -40, but so far been really impressed with SR+ efficiency.

    This is awesome. Do you drive a lot of City or Hghway? For me, I am at +200Wh/Km even when its 5C outside.
    I think i am going to change the charge current so that the battery is charging in the morning and finishes just before my commute.

    I do both and find highway is usually a little higher because my commute isn’t very long. In fact, it’s short enough you could probably just call it city driving lol.

    While weather plays a huge part, I find the SR+ has severely limited regen (even in the summer I never started a drive without having dots). Preheating mitigates this at least a little bit.

    Just an excel sheet. Model 3 kW Log

    Copy what you need :)

    Note: I've left many columns unused since updating it on a daily basis. I simply copy the previous line and change:

    1. Odometer reading.
    2. Starting battery charge (in kms)
    3. Ending battery charge (in kms)
    4. Voltage/Current (if you're into this level of detail)
    5. Where/What/vs TeslaFi data.

    The rest fills out itself. It's not exact but gives a good ball park figure of what's happening.
