    This is a random tip on how to open a charge port with your key fob and it should work for both Model S and Model X cars. If you already knew about this - kuddos to you - you are awesome! If you didn't - I hope you find it useful. If you know other great tips about your car - please do share it as well.

    You can also just push gently on the charge port door to open and leave fob in pocket. Cheers!

    I believe it's only in the later models. Earlier models do not do that

    Same comment as the one I gave you on Tesla Forums. If you want to share a tip here, share the tip in your post. Don't just send people to your video making it clickbait. Add the video as well if you want, but as you do it now, you give the impression you're trolling for clicks...

    A minute and a half video for something that can be summed up in just a few words? I totally agree, just post the words.

    Just added to "Ignore" status.

    Helpful tip, if you press on the right pedal the car accelerates. If you knew that already, kudos to you! Video forthcoming.

    Gently push down gives only 3 blinks, if you want indefinite blinking, you need to push down hard*

    *but not hard enough to break it.
