I've owned the model 3 performance for a bit over a week now.
I live in a town home in park slope without a garage or driveway, so I do not have the luxury of plugging it in each night, instead I have to go to the nearest super charging station which usually takes an hour to 2 hrs for a full charge. (also a chadmo a few blocks from me but alas, Tesla has not released the adapter for chadmo fast charging for the model 3- so i cant use it) my commute is anywhere from 42 - 54 miles a day depending on the route and traffic. But its draining my battery over 110 miles. I put it in autopilot and chill mode last night on my way home from work. took the 19 mile route Battery drained 37 miles. I made a reservation for service, but from what I am reading this may not be a serviceable issue, but rather the fact that I chose the performance model with the 20" rims. I am getting about 51% of the 310 miles. and I loose an additional 3- 5 miles every night when the car is parked and idle. Is this normal?
