    Is there a place to view how much energy I've consumed from Superchargers? I am in the free supercharging program, but Tesla must meter it because they bill other folks, right? Curious because I am calculating how much it costs to drive my MS. At 5000mi I have used about $187 of electricity without netting out my Supercharger sessions. I suspect I am closer to $150 after netting out SC-acquired juice. Regardless, way better than my 15mpg car previous to the MS, nearly $800 of savings versus gas in just 5,000 miles!

    If you subscribe to TeslaFi, it tracks all your charging sessions for you, including breaking out Supercharging from a/c charging. If you have the connector and OBD2 dongle for Scan My Tesla, you can also access the BMS on your Tesla, where it keeps track off all a/c vs d/c charging in terms of total kwh used by each.

    Oh! Where is the OBD2 port? I have a WiFi reader. Is Scan My Tesla an app? Maybe my dongle will work with it.

    I rolled my own TeslaFi in Google Sheets (which I am happy to share) as I didn't trust TeslaFi since they have no privacy policy and the data they collect his sensitive and personal.

    You can start here

    Well, that is a personal dilemma and we all have to weigh the pros and cons of potentially giving up some privacy in return for useful utility.... I may feel differently if something happens, but right now TeslaFi's utility outweighs any potential loss of privacy for me...
