I'd go back just for the scenery and weather. Maybe by next year I'll have a TDI again too!

The scenery will still be here, but I make no promises about the weather.

You know... just to stay in practice.
Jason, the dog and I took a 2,500 mile road trip to visit family in our Model 3 over Labor Day weekend. We had a great time and fuel economy was 130 MPGe for the trip.

Wow, you've got it, the Model 3...verrrry nice! I saw you do a SC review on Zack & Jesse's channel a while back. A Telsa is the next move for me, but unfortunately Rich Benoit drove all the copart auction prices crazy which is the only way I'd be able to touch one. Congrats!!

Is there a way to have this forum output a geographical or state/province list of members?!
I’d like to see a list of all members in my state and then message them and see who might be interested in helping organize a fest.

I'm glad you have that kind of patience. I know I sure don't. If it took me 2 years + to get a diesel I wanted, I'd settle for something less or do a different brand.

How many miles do you and Jason get with your Tesla before having to recharge? And does having the AC running all the time affect battery life, or not really?

We'll have it at Ho5G this year. Hopefully you can sneak away from work for a little while and check it out. That Supercharger review was on our trip up to Ho5G last year in a rented Model S 100D. It was cold!

I suppose I need to start a Model 3: Ask Me Anything thread

Good things take time. The Model 3 took a lot of time and it's amazing... totally worth the wait. Fortunately, new buyers don't have to wait that long. Today, order times range from 4 weeks to 4 months, depending on configuration.

Full charge range is 310 miles of EPA rated range. On long trips, we settle into a pattern of charging for about 20 minutes every 2.5 hours after the initial stint of about 4 hours. Charging from 10% - 60% and continuing to the next stop is the quickest way to travel, compared to charging to higher levels and charging less often.

The air conditioning uses very little power. The heater uses about three times more, so winter range can be reduced by about a quarter in very cold weather, particularly on short shopping trips where the car is cold soaking several times per day. Our TDIs suffered similar drops in mileage in winter temps. Like the TDIs, the difference is much less on a long trip where the vehicle only has to warm up once.

I'm finding the Volt has a similar issue. What had been a 44~46 mile estimate in summer on a full charge is down to 36~38 with the near freezing temps now, and that's with minimal heat usage.
As it gets colder I'm sure the battery range will drop more than it already has.
I charge at home to end by 5 am. I hit the remote start to allow warm-up / de-frost while still plugged in to the 220 so the battery remains unused. I switch the heat off for the short duration 10 mile drive to work. I then have ample kw for the uphill climb back to home using only as much battery powered defrost as needed to minimize the chances of the 1.4 liter on-board generator activating.
