122 to 101 miles of range for an 11 mile run. 11 miles, 2.kWh of battery for the preconditioning. The 34 miles, 8.2kWh the last time the Tesla was on Preconditioning the entire time to the charger. Big differences. Fall and Winter coming should be able to get a larger sample.

Definitely have to more careful in cooler weather on letting battery go down. Instead of what seems like a built in fudge factor by Tesla on the low end, those extra 10-20 miles that Preconditioning is going to consume.

Not important to those with home charging but for Model 3’ers dependent on the public chargers, an important number to know.

Nice if Tesla gave us some basic specs on power usage but a Winter of recording power usage should provide some base line numbers.

From Fishy's first thread as referenced in this thread:

"The Preconditioning message was on for the 11 mile, 10 minute trip. Taking out the 11 miles for the trip, the Pre-Conditioning looks to have used 34 miles of range, 8kWh of power. "

In order for the car to use 8kWh of energy in 10 minutes, it would have to be drawing 48kW on average continuously throughout those 10 minutes to heat the battery. This is not possible. Fishy doubled down multiple times in the other thread and clearly has no understanding of kW and kWh and what is remotely possible.

75,000 wH battery

4.13 miles per kWh

11 miles/4.13 would be 2.66kWh of battery

34 miles/4.13 would be 8.23kWh of battery

Here’s pic of the energy usage spike

That’s your game. Too funny that you were able to find it and resurrect it even though it makes your claims above look...ahem...less than accurate.

Hopefully with new forum software, the Search function will work better.

I hope it is true, it will expose the trolls so badly!!!

The answer is 4 kW, so I don’t know why we’re acting like the answer is some mystery.

Rinse and Repeat.
