I am going to be away from the car for a few weeks. Should I leave my M3 connected to my home charge connection while I am gone? Or just charge before I leave and disconnect it?

Thanks.

Given that Teslas have a tendency to sometimes go crazy with the vampire drain, I'd consider leaving it plugged in, programmed to charge to 50%.

For an EV that doesn't have such a problem, I'd charge it to 70% and leave it unplugged - just in case lightning were to hit a power line.
