    Hey guys,

    I remember reading a thread on this forum regarding supercharging speeds, and most were reporting between 250 - 350 mi /hr (Beware: Supercharger speeds vary greatly | Tesla Motors).

    To my surprise, this weekend at the Greenwich Supercharge in RI, I was the only Tesla there and saw 420mi/hr! I was around 35% SOC (S90D) when I started charging.

    Later I was at the same charging station with a couple of more Teslas in the other stalls and saw a more "reasonable" 280mi/hr. But it's crazy to know that they have the potential to charge that fast!

    Are you set to show "Ideal" miles instead of "Rated" miles range?

    oh yeah, good call guys. 310 ideal = ~265 rated for me at 90% SOC, so 420 -> ~360mi/hr. That sounds more like it. thanks!

    Just wondering, why do you have it set to show ideal miles? I keep mine on rated and even then it's a bit optimistic. The ideal number would have no particular connection to reality for me.

    You're charging between 109-112kwh based on the voltage and amperage in your screenshot, which is quite normal based on your SoC.

    Much like my feeling about my MS: I have to pinch myself otherwise there is no particular connection to reality! It's like a dream. :)

    Well, depending on how I drive I find that I can sometimes get pretty close to ideal miles by driving it like my old Prius haha. Sometimes it's just a challenge to see if I can do it :) For my actual rated miles, I just keep an eye on the trip meter to show estimated rated miles based on last 30 miles of driving if I care.
