So this Tuesday morning at 4am on my way home from work I noticed nearly all of the stalls at the local supercharger were full. Seemed odd for this area so I swung by to see if there really were 6 Teslas supercharging. Sure enough the entire SC was empty.

I’m posting this because this is not the first instance at this location. Do other Superchargers experience issues reporting an accurate vehicle count this frequently? I did verify my lte connection was working.

I've noticed there seems to be some hysteresis - stalls seem to be marked "in use" faster than they are marked "empty" leading to higher in-use counts than reality.

We drove about 750 miles over the weekend and the Supercharger counts were wrong at every Supercharger. Most showed 5 or 6 stalls in use when there were really 6 to 8 stalls available.
