Hi, great video. Suggestion: what about comparing a gasoline aggregate to charge the model3 and use the same volume of gas on a regular car and compare who can drive the farest😀

I have always set my Tire pressure to at least 2 OVER the recommended pressure. Has served me and my 3 Volts well since March 2012. I'll do the same when I get my Tesla.

So $60,000 for your Tesla vs $30,000 for Honda CR-V which leaves me $30,000 savings for gas and your bragging about your fuel savings!!

Tintin? What happened to your hair?

David Bach · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

How big is the differense between the Tesla Aero Wheels vs. Ordinary Wheels when it comes to saving charge?

ShamanEntertainment · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Excellent video, lots of info.

Thanks for that. I do have a question about your edit: what is the transition pack you are using? And are you editing with Premiere?

Ryan · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Super interested in how your Tesla does in the winter and the performance.

VapeKing · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

How do you get free supercharging?

Good info. That website you’re using is going to come in handy! Thank you for this post. For someone starting their own posts, what program/software are you using that allows you to capture those amazing motion graphics and still keep that brushed metal/graphite background? It’s really cool during your transitions to different sections! Looking forward to these videos. Very polished channel.

Omg when will americans stop using fahrenheits, miles, feets, thumbs, barells, cups, my grandma hands, dogs tails and bat wings as a way how measure things? There are a standartised measure units that the whole world agreed upon and you still use these prehistoic nonsense random stuff. Grow up already. Thumbs down for this video for ignoring the rest sane 6.7 bilion people on this planet

306nwe · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

how do you charge at home ?

OwenSparks · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

3:56 Despite the bumpy road, what a beautiful entry way those trees make!

Andrew Saginario · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Wow, your electricity cost is around $0.23/kWh? That is basically double what it costs in Florida.

bodil · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

pls stop with those annoying cutaways, you dont need them 🙂 keep up the good work tho

Clayton Root · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

I would like to applaud you on this video production! Judicious use of humorous video enhancements, no ramming of your personal choice in music down my throat throughout the bulk of the presentation, and excellent factual information expressed in an articulate manner. Bravo!

Maxime Romain Julien · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Great videos, v pro & interesting!

glenn goodale · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Thanks for another informative and interesting video

Kurt Dmello · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Is it possible to start the temperature control with google home? I would love to see a video on that.

Tom Barron · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Interested to see how the route planner correlates with actual charging requirements in the winter seeing as it does take weather conditions into account it should plan the route accordingly depending on temperature if the range is lower in cold weather due to cabin heating requirements.

Stone Cold · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Another great video Matt. Thank you.

Curt Austin · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Very good report. You passed by my town, north of Lake George. You went up and over Tongue Mountain on 9N; the descent is the steepest grade of any state highway in New York – on a bike, my hands get tired holding the brake levers. I think we'll go to the Rockwell Museum.

As to Wh/mile, air resistance is a function of the square of speed, so always take that into consideration before anything else. As a police officer told me just the other day, slow down.

Jeremy Carr · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Day to day in city driving with my AWD with the 19s I'm seeing around 190 wh/km; maybe it's tire pressure. I hope TeslaFi opens up their tracking so we can track and compare like cars in like geographies

Can't wait to be able to afford a Tesla as I absolutely LOVE road trips. As-is I have taken my '15 i3 BEV on two trips for work at about 400 miles roundtrip each time and it has been entirely doable. Having to stop every 60 miles (it's somewhat of a hilly / fast drive) isn't the most fun you could have, it did make the drive surprisingly more relaxing. Even with paid DC fast charging stops each 400 mile road trip still ended up costing around $22 total as opposed to the $60+ cost of gasoline it would've normally taken. Even a "short range city car" EV like my i3 can do longer road trips, but having the longer range and access to an incredibly more ubiquitous charging network will make road trips so much nicer.

PC Ce · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

When I go on road trips I carry diesel with me and I can get 1500 km range. I cannot get that from an electric car. Electric cars are so annoying having to stop for about and hour to charge.

123abc · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

The savings gas vs. electric isn't huge. Conclusion, you don't buy a Tesla to save money. If you had a hybrid it might have been cheaper, also when factoring the cost of the car and tax credits.

antonio volpe · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

my p100d loves it’s 12 volt tire pressure pump

Ryan S. · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

I live just over the border in NH and am very interested in your follow up videos for the winter and range on the Model 3. I am very interested in the Model 3 to be my next commuter vehicle to replace my aging VW TDI with 275k on it. Hard to give up the great fuel millage I get with that car and the Model 3 I think is the next step.

Mike Plate · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Matt another good video – just a side comment, I enjoy the topics, really impressed with the music editing and weaving it into your monologues, really slick. One thing that caught me was some of the 'anxiety' video clips you inserted here and there. Just felt jarring (which I get was the intended purpose along with the humor) just feel like it took away from your mellow informational flow. Or maybe it was because I was listening to this at 4am and it was to much to early! Just my .02 – picking up my car from Craft today from the wrap work that was done per your video – thnx again.

Ted Kidd · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

I'm in Rochester. Lots of free charging here.

Shortly after wiring my garage they put charging in at Cobb's Hill, a 5 minute walk.

AND they send you a consumption invoice, so you can really track true consumption!

stitch16261 · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

This question is to anyone, can a Tesla owner use Nitrogen vs regular air to fill up the tires?

debendra gurung · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

Good. Now do the same during winter at subzero.

fatboy19831 · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

You should use nitrogen in your tires. Nitrogen is much less susceptible to temperature changes. Especially when going from a cold to hot tire. I often go 3 to 4 years without having to add any nitrogen.

Gazmanich · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

with all the nice and thorough post editing, you didnt bother to show kilometers beside miles. Units system, which… you know… the entire world uses.

Lee Cogan · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

The price of petrol in the US is laughable compared to Europe. When doing some rough calculations based on your $2.79 per gallon, the average price per litre of Petrol in Ireland is €1.42. When converting that to gallons and also to US dollars, you're looking at around $6 per gallon in Ireland for Petrol, diesel being a little cheaper. So having an EV with cheap electricity costs is a no brainer.

TheAdamChampagne · May 31, 2019 at 10:09 am

you drove right through my town!
