1st electric car for me and I love it.

My 1st question is the Gen 1 plug doesn't fit my electric dryer outlet which I don't use. I see Tesla has them for the Gen 2 but were can I find a Gen 1 adapter.

It sits on T Sportline 20x9.0" Front, 20x10" Rear and seems to have all the options per the CPO paperwork in the glovebox.

Sorry did not answer your question. If an adapter for your dryer outlet is not available, then you might change the outlet to a plug configuration for which Tesla sells an adapter. I am guessing the dryer has a 30A 220-240V circuit properly installed and permitted, but check to be sure.

For now, just plug into a standard NEMA 5-15 three prong grounded outlet, which will let you draw 12A and about 3 miles of range an hour.

For upgrade info to getting a higher charge rate, see the Tesla tap website under charging.

Just get the minimum you need for daily use, unless you are far from a SC, or drive a lot.
Hmm....drove one in my mispent youth in the 70's....

But, did you check the Gen 1 adapters in the Tesla store? There are like 6 of them...

For the same money as an adapter, you could change the outlet provided the wiring and circuit breaker are appropriate.

I charge at 27A, 20RM per hour. Plenty for me, but I am less than 20 min from a SC, and have FUSC for life of the car..
I like to have as much amperage available as possible but that said even here near Green Bay I got by on a dryer 10-30 (3prong 30amp) a yearoutlet for, yours is likely a 14-30 (4prong 30amp) is the newer version.
As stated Tesla sells the adapter for this.
Highly unlikely the wiring will support a standard 14-50 and illegal if the current breaker does.
