    That has to be one of the highest mile Model 3’s out there.
    The video was very informative and I think lots of people would be interested.
    I know I was. We have 55k on ours and charge to about 295 at 100%.
    The fact he is still able to charge to 308 is amazing.

    Looks like maybe the mods moved or deleted it for some reason?

    From what I saw, it started to get into the "snipiness" territory.

    Here's the link to the video:
    I watched it... but yeah, the thread devolved into people bashing him for posting a video and then referring people to the video for any questions about his experience.

    site is almost unusable... i stopped browsing the main model three forum because 3/4 of the page is covered with moved topic links. Whoever this mod is is doing a super crappy job. And they don’t have the courage to give us an explanation or even admit they are doing it. It’s pathetic. A must be a leaf owner.

    Ya, I'm also not a fan of all the thread movement.

    Pretty cool, thanks for posting about this as I had not seen it before
    Most amazing to me is it is all supercharger miles and he drove about 75000 miles in 2019 alone!

    he states he only charges to 60% max.; not sure I believe that with the amount of miles and traveling he is doing

    good to see someone will be putting the battery life to the test as far as mileage

    I mean could it be charging to 60-70 percent and using superchargers only is the key?

    I just click What's New which takes me to New Posts From All Forums | Tesla Motors Club and skim for anything I might be interested in.

    If he does lots of long range travel in the united states (i.e. low speed and lots of superchargers) 60% makes total sense. He charges every 200-250km or so and runs the battery from 60% to 10% in the process while enjoying superfast supercharging.

    Agree with you guys about the mods in here. I have no interest in sifting through a million posts on master threads. How does anyone get anything out of those?
    I like the fresh topics that are on people's minds(both good and bad). It's what made me buy my car in September. I know forum gurus will tell us how wrong we are, this is how professional forums are run, and how much better TMC is than everything invented since the wheel. Please. Get real people. I'm sure this comment will be deleted too.
    Delete inappropriate threads. Simple as that.

    To you moderators:
    Do you realize how unorganized the master threads are? They look awful fellas.

    Sincerely,

    Someone who wants to see fresh threads and help people instead of being snippy by telling them to search through 1,000 replies on a sloppily organized master thread.

    Agree as well. I would prefer to read 5 topics on something similar than one master thread with 80 pages that someone has organized for my benefit.

    I've lost track how many times I've almost donated money to this site and yet another moderator irritated me so I cancelled it.

    Not sure the math works out for that based on his blog locations and fairly certain he also states he only has gone sub 20% a handful of times.
    Maybe with frequent destination chargers in between but that is a colossal waste of time compared to charging to 80 or 90 at the supercharger stop.
    If you do the math between 60 and 20 percentage and likely what he is averaging he would need to be stopping every 120 miles and probably less than 100 miles between stops in the winter time if not more often than that.

    This is someone driving in 2019 approx. 200 miles per day so that would be 2 stops a day on average?
    Just saying that sounds questionable.
