Yeah. I’ve no doubt that service is going to update my software when they install the new pack. At the end of the day though as long as it the pack stays relatively consistent that’s all I want to see.
I don't know if you can see the pack label, but I'd take a pic before and after.

Hoping you get a new pack and never have cause to worry about it again!

They probably do, but well hidden. I'd mark yours just to make sure it does not come back!
That’s a little conspiracy theorist for my liking! It’ll be quite obvious within one drive if the same pack comes back. It’s pretty easy to tell when you’re missing about a third of your range, and charging to 90% results in the battery stopping charging at ~85% and then phantom climbing to 100%.

Bottom line, - not worried. Just looking forward to the car going in for the work in a few weeks.

Yeah like @WilliamG mentioned, my new pack is absolutely normal behavior. Charge stopped right at 90%, did not "climb" after charging stopped. I've used about 25% of the charge since this morning, and via TeslaFi, every watt is accounted for making my pack a 97kWh pack. (not 79kwh).
It is as if it's anew car (effectively). Completely different behavior. PLUS, I have a photo of my my new pack going in to the car that my SvC sent me when they had to replace a broken tool from a nearby SvC to get my new pack installed.
There is absolutely ZERO doubt a new pack went into my car.

I am sure you are correct. They would never just push out software, or reset your BMS...

I might have sounded a little paranoid, but I have MCU1, which I have been trying to get the eMMC chip replaced for a year now.

Yeah that’s a bummer, and an entirely different situation. My new battery pack, however, is on site, waiting for me. I feel pretty confident it gets installed!

I'm sure that Tesla will do the right thing for you, if perhaps for the wrong reasons

If they knew more about how to gimp your pack, or say it was "Fine" "in spec" or "Functioning as designed" they would.

Such are the few benefits of being an early adopter.

Enjoy your new pack, and may you never have to darken the driveway of a SvC again..

Here's the usage snapshot. Lifetime average 313 Wh/mi.


View attachment 712266

Energy usage in Trip B is exactly what I saw on a 6k road trip circa 2018 with an 85D.

Not plaid data, the highway consumption for a Plaid with 19" is lower but similar.

107 MGGe for the 85D highway.

Forget what the plaid numbers are, bit 99 MGGe for 21's comes to mind.
