Hi Everyone,
I picked up my model 3 yesterday.
When I got home I tested to see if my andersen charger would reach the car from our two parking options. Even though I ordered the 8m tethered cable when I ordered my charger I'm still about 1.5 meters short in one of the parking options which is a bit of a pain. Can I use the blue tesla cable that came with the car as an extension?

No, it doesn't work with type 2 cables, like the blue one supplied. Although they may appear to fit, some pins are recessed to prevent this.
