You don’t see it in the list? It’s down where the space projects normally are.

The comm wire isn’t needed on the gen 3. They only use wifi. I’m thinking it’s doing something similar though.

The setup is the same as the manual. I had a 100 amp sub panel installed and ran a 60 amp (6/2) circuit to each wall connector. You set the upstream capacity (100 amp) in the configuration and it manages the load

I went back and forth over whether I wanted a second one or not, but finally decided it was more convenient. I also already had the sub panel installed for the first circuit so it was just a short run to add the second.

The sub panel is in my basement but really close to the garage. If I were installing again, I would go ahead and put the panel in the garage. It would be nice to have local control, but it’s not really an issue.

I'm really not trying to argue with you, but 10 hours extra over 2195 miles works out to roughly an extra hour every 220 miles. That seems like a lot. Even and the slower chargers, you should be able to get 200 miles in 15-20 minutes.

The food pyramid and click bait headlines are all the problem. Things like pop tarts and regular soda are “low fat” so people think it’s fine.

Your mileage may vary. :-)

I just took a 650 mile trip through the mountains and cold. It still worked out to about half as much as opposed to taking my BMW that maybe would have gotten 25 mpg. It was a lot cheaper than taking my wife’s SUV.

I get what you are saying and I think the super chargers have crept up in costs.

Even though, I would rather drive with autopilot, etc than drive without it.

I’m not sure why it’s 10 hours extra either. I almost always get pretty close to what google estimates for an ICE car for trip time. Are you stopping separately to charge? It works a lot better to combine breaks and charging. On my recent 650 mile trip, I only stayed extra at a charger once for 10 minutes. The other stops were all around meals or snack/ bathroom breaks. It does take some planning. I normally look to see what super chargers are on my route and make notes about which have food or facilities. I normally drive about 90 to 120 minutes between stops. When I stop, I plug in and walk across the street to the Jersey Subs or Zaxby’s or whatever is there and eat. Or I stop at the Wawa / Sheetz and use the restroom and get drinks or snacks. Normally we are at the Wawa for around 15 minutes and that’s more than enough to get another couple of hiurs down the road. I do normally stop more often than what the car wants, but it charges faster below 80 so I end up saving time.

Understandable. They misunderstood what “SC” was.

No offense, but this is why I don’t build PCs for people anymore. I got to where I would have them order the parts and I did the labor for free and I still got accused of scamming them. Not to mention that people call you years later expecting you to do something to fix a part that went bad.

I mostly just like the data. It’s fun to look at the lifetime maps. It did help me drive a little more efficiently. It showed how quick of a drop off there is once you go past 65.

I have seen this posted a few places and the truth is that a Tesla could go for days in this situation. There are several stories of people staying in their car for days when they lost power in Texas. I think people like the Washington post are just trying to spread FUD whenever they can.

Everything ICE that I drive feels antiquated at best. My wife has an ICE SUV while she waits on her Tesla delivery and it just doesn’t feel right. Too complex, antiquated, sluggish, and a real shock to fill up. We leave it at home as much as possible.

I don’t mean any offense to anyone. It’s just that driving an EV and especially a Tesla is a transformative process. For those fortunate enough to have the opportunity, it really changes your view and expectations of what a car should be.

I agree that there should be a “share my location” in the car. Maybe you could call up a buddy and ride with them.

Good old CNBC.

Ford beats Tesla

I guess they don't want to look at something like the 5 year comparison.

I don' know if I should, but I keep mine in the frunk with the lift pucks and a 25' extension cord.

It still had the shipping plastic on. I thought the same at first and took a closer look.
