Charging with a NEMA 10-30 extension cord

Just wondering if anyone has had any luck charging a model S with a 50 foot extension cord from a 30 amp dryer plug?

Yes, I do it often. #10 SJOOW cord. Never coiled during charging. Limit to 16 amps just for safe measure.

@finished. I've also done it a few times and had to dial down the amps.
