    45mph speed limit in high mode

    I've read through this train wreck so why not add my own comments, lol? @Truckenthused23, you started off being abrasive and continued throughout the discussion. What kind of responses do you expect? You're simply getting back what you are giving out, but you don't like it. There are many...

    Supercharging limitation - is this new?

    Could this also be targeted at Lyft/Uber drivers?

    Living With The Chevy Silverado EV For (Almost) A Week

    Thanks for the write up. Owning the Avalanche, Suburbans and GMC Jimmy in the past, if I had not gotten the Rivian, I would probably be driving the E Silverado. I had a day one reservation which I cancelled.

    Parking Garage Structural Rating (Inquiry)

    Depending on the source, it seems the safety factor in newer designs is anywhere from 1.5x to as much as 5x, so from a collapse viewpoint, it's highly unlikely. There is another longer term concern that factors into weight limits - long term flexing wear and tear. The concern is that repeatedly...

    Commuting Concerns on a Packed Ferry Boat

    I would get (well actually I did) a $100 NOCO jump starter and keep it in the vehicle. Odds are you will never need it but you have it if needed. And you could also be a saviour for an ICE if their battery dies.

    Conflict at the Supercharger

    I don't disagree with your reasoning about shorter cables. But that does not make a longer cable impractical or impossible. From my recollection of using a Tesla charger on a Tesla M3, it seems to me the cable needs to be about 3 - 4 feet longer at most to be "universal", although I could be...

    BEWARE - EVGo at Pilot Flying J - ripoff pricing

    kl I rarely use DCFC since I charge 99% of the time at home or at the RAN in Delaware. But occasionally I use EVGo since they are prevalent in my area but I find them to be expensive - I paid around $0.55 the last time I used EVGo. I was not aware of Bluedot, I am going to investigate and...

    Conflict at the Supercharger

    It's also easy to flip that and say that Tesla is squarely to blame for not anticipating an open network and making longer retractible cables (like Volta), wider spaces, charger positioning, etc. Regardless of the past designs and implementations, It is clear that Tesla should have addressed...

    BEWARE - EVGo at Pilot Flying J - ripoff pricing

    Pilot Flying J is a big company with 700+ (?) locations. They certainly do market research and fuel pricing comparisons for their dinosaur fuel. I want to think that they have done their EV "fueling" market research and this is their business plan, even if it makes little sense to me. Do they...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    I'll let your previous comment qualify and validate my observation that you put anyone who crticizes Musk as a hater and want Tesla to fail. Do you deny posting this, and similar statements in other threads? "The very people who criticize his leadership, are the same people who want Tesla to...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    Lol, thanks for proving my point. You can’t see through your bias. Yes, there are haters here. There are also plenty of people here who object to/dislike what Musk is doing, but hate neither him nor Tesla. But you put everyone who criticizes Musk in the hater camp. Enjoy…

    Fortune ‘Single greatest talent acquisition opportunity’: Elon Musk firing Tesla’s Supercharger team proves an unprecedented gift for the EV industry Thanks to Elon Musk, the “single greatest talent acquisition opportunity in the industry” fell right into the lap of Aaron and Stephanie...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    Your comments say to me that you can’t see beyond your own bias. You appear to have a fundamental belief that people who don’t approve of what Musk is doing hate Musk and/or hate Tesla. Sad.

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    Regarding the impact, I'll believe quotes from former employees in the charging division before I believe "brilliant" and "well-planned" accolades here from Elon Kool-Aid drinkers. Morale must be dismal with the remaining employees.

    Road Charge Collection Pilot—California pilot study

    Assuming this pilot is successful and California decides to implement this permanently, how are they going to enforce it, and deal with outlier situations? I can see California mandating that new EVs sold after a certain date have built in telematics that automatically/continuously does the...

    Conserve mode effects on safety/handling?

    On the quad, if you are in conserve mode, there has never been any indication from Rivian or any other test reports that shows power is re-applied to the rear automatically. And if it were (which is highly doubtfully) it certainly would not be "instantaneous". The quad uses a mechanical clutch...

    Sad world we live in (Houston charger cables being cut)

    That’s why I said reduce but not eliminate. The lazy ones will not want to deal with stripping the insulation. Colored insulation would not stop legit recycling. Legit recycling can be easily handled with proper company id and/or special labels. That’s how it is done in the refrigeration...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    Musk revealed a few years ago that he is on the autism spectrum. Lack of, or “imbalanced” empathy is a common characteristic of the condition. This is one of the reasons his role should not include the ability to make sweeping personnel changes, and points to failure by the board. Have him stick...
