    Seem to be loosing 5-7 miles in 8 hour spans while at work and overnight parking with my MX. I have the temp controls shut off, is there something I’m missing or is this normal?

    Same with my 75D

    Figured it was normal. If you leave it untouched for several days it will slow down around the 4th day to like 2 mile drain per 24 hours.

    Disable always connected and enable energy saving when needed. I get very minimal loss with that.

    That's weird. I was checking my status every night for the past few nights and I don't see this. I live in Texas and it's been really hot. My car's temps hover between 90 - 100 when I've parked it during the day and about 90 - 95 when I park it in the garage over night. Miles-wise, I didn't lose anything. I did notice that sometimes when I came into the garage in the morning though, that the self-presenting door didn't work on the first try. I wonder if the car put itself to sleep? Some kind of deep sleep? :eek:

    OP hasn’t mentioned what power management settings are

    “Always connected?”
    “Cabin overheat?”

    TeslaFi or other third party apps polling the api ?

    7 miles (~2.5%) of battery is not uncommon ..sitting in hot sun if windows are not tinted will raise interior temps a lot ..at that point the AC will come on temporarily to cool battery ..all perfectly normal

    unless you're missing that range, i wouldn't worry about it. it's probably cabin overheat protection on, especially in florida.

    and i would not advise turning that feature off, im under the impression the MCU doesn't do well in 150 degree heat.

    Also, the less you check to see how your battery is doing the less you wake your car and the less you drain.

    How hot is it where you're parking it? I just checked my car again on my app (it's in the shop waiting to be wrapped, so it's climate-controlled to some extent) but I lost 1 mile in the past 36 hours. I doubt I have battery cooling kicking in right now though. That's either the culprit, or something else is going on that needs to be looked at?

    The last couple of weeks have been 90-100 here and my daytime sitting consumption is way up. I figure it's down to cabin overheat and battery pack temperature management. I know it's not normal at cooler temperatures, because I lost 4 miles in 11 days sitting at cooler temperatures.

    That is strange. I live in south Florida and it gets hot and sticky here, usually high 90s inside parked car. My wife does a 32 mile round trip work commute 5 days a week, so I figure she is loosing at least a one way ride every four days.

    I wish those doors would beep when the complete a task, I find myself alaways double checking drives door to make sure they are closed on walk away .

    Thanks for info.
    All I have is the nav app that came with car.

    I’m in South Florida and the MX is parked in a parking garage at wife’s job and here at home also in a parking garage. Temps I have noticed in day time mid 90s and at night low 80s, of course it is July, this winter it will cool down. I did not realize u awake the car every time you use the phone app to check on it which takes power. The MX is also connected to Alexa. ( I Know )
