Going full VEGAN getting off petroleum has its side-effects. Tesla considers electrical wiring coated in soy-based insulation - as consumable thus not covered by warranty along with tires, brake pads and filters. 🙃

Preventative maintenance is called a Ratmat that you must park your Tesla over. At $1500ea. that’s upping total cost of ownership (TCO).

Gimme non-consumable wiring PLS

You can also shave a little bit of Irish spring into your rodent prone gaps. Apparently the smell is repulsive to field mice as well as women.

We've replaced the window wash bottle in our Model 3 because of this. Rat chewed three 1 inch diameter holes in the container. Wasn't an expensive fix and luckily didn't chew wiring. spraying peppermint every coupe months to try to deter sucks.

Please use non-consumable wiring!

Someone needs to add something rodent-repelling to the insulation ingredients. Bitrex comes to mind, don't know if that would work.
