    Not a big deal, but kind of strange. Picked it up today (11th) and noticed this. I guess they super charged it to fill it up two days before I took delivery. I guess I know it works...?

    seems like they would just plug into the high powered wall charger night before and call it good.

    No, he doesn't have to pay it. It's just Tesla Internal Chaos (tm) striking again.

    Off-topic but whenever I pick-up my car from service, it is charging/charged. I have never had a gas car dealer fill my tank when I brought my car in for service. New car, yes but not service.

    Lexus filled up my car the first oil change I went in for and never the 8 times after that. They were charging me $90 for what I now get done outside the dealership for $45. I am looking forward to when Tesla has everything under control and the service is not a revenue producer.

    I think you and I define the word "chaos" very differently.

    That's weird. I wasn't charged for any of my supercharging sessions all of last week. I was supposed to pay $20 in total but I paid $0.

    Others have also recently reported not being charged for their charge, so maybe Tesla's billing system is incorrectly charging the wrong people at times?

    when the delivery centers have over-flow I think they charge the cars at local superchargers. Some of those cars have been traveling a week or two. probs low on juice. I don't think its common but I read a comment on another forum in California where a dude was having to wait for a Tesla employee to charge a new car and finally go the employee to move the car for him. it was't at a "store".
