4-6%? That’s it?

Where do you live, sunny California?

Is this a joke?

4-6% a day is ridiculous. I lose 1 mile every 2 days. Which equates to about 0.15% a day. And it’s 17F outside right now (but my car gets to sleep in a cozy 45F garage).

You don’t lose miles just sitting asleep in the cold unless it’s insanely cold. Like below -26F.

Sentry and Summon will kill your battery.

6% is 20 miles on my car, that’s more than my commute. That would be like an ICE SUV losing a gallon of fuel a day.

Clearly you don’t have a pre-facelift model S or early Model X
 
It seems like beside Sentry (and/or 3rd party dashcams) that people could clarify which of these options they are using:
