    The calculations assume 30 amp - you still have the 40 amp option. Have you checked the charging station location applications?

    Are you suggesting he acquire (or borrow) a different connector that allows for 40A? Or is he wrong about the "mc 240"?

    My UMC allows for 40 amp. But I missed that it was an MC 240.

    Here's the cord that's coming with the roadster. I don't know yet if it was upgraded and at what rate it charges but says 30amp limit

    Yep, I stand corrected. The UMC that I have handles 40amps.

    Looks like i'll try to get from birmingham to orlando on day 1 with charging stops in dothan (gulp) and gainesville. Day 2 should be a breeze to miami.
