    Do you have passive entry turned off? Seems like that would save quite a bit of power, and most other cars don't have that feature.

    Ha.
    I gave up on sleep mode (latency)and do use Teslafi (so pinging car every minute I think).
    Here in Canada it is cold. And even the AP cameras are heated all night.
    So when I leave mine for a week, it uses nearly 5 kWh AC per day. Wild big number.
    I know because I submeter the circuit.
