    I don't see mine taper off (at least not more than a few amps) towards the end of a standard charge.

That gives me 31 miles per hour of charge, if you look at it after about 30 minutes of charging. If you're charging at 40A/240V you should be at about 30 miles per hour. If you're charging at 40A/208V (condos/industrial buildings), you should be at about 25-26 miles per hour.
    This is what I'm seeing.

    You can change your preference for distance vs. power in the UI.

    If you have your preferences set to show ideal range instead of rated range, you'll see even higher numbers. So for comparison, make sure you're set for Rated range (240 for full standard or 265-275 for full range)

    Its part of the 4.0 software. Shows on the charging screen. (miles/hr charge rate, volts, amps, kW and hours to fully charged)

    It's also available in previous versions.

    Tesla announced that the HPWC would start shipping in December 2012. I asked our configuration contact about it and he confirmed December. Our car will not be produced until February or March of 2013 so I asked him if the HPWC might be shipped far in advance of the car. He informed us that these units would be shipped in the same sequence as the orders were placed. Because I have no idea how many people ordering the car included the HPWC I am still unsure about when it will arrive. I am traveling to western Washington tomorrow and intend to ask at the Tesla Store in Bellevue. I am hopeful that many car buyers did not order the HPWC so that we can at least get it soon. Finished the 100 Amp branch to the garage last week. The electrician included an NEMA 14-50 outlet which is functioning now.

    This is interesting to me, as this is a very different order than the order in which cars are being delivered. I am an early order but won't receive my car until a bit later due to my battery option. Wonder if I will get the HPWC before others that had their car delivered before mine.

    Cheers.

    Most likely it will be in the sequence of the delivered orders. Although getting the HPWC ready will just make the wait for the car that much more unbearable!
