Thanks for the info. Any ideas how to deal with a dealer (Toyota Oxnard) who claims there is no Techstream software, and only provides Toyota "health check" diagnostics? Thanks, Mark


Every Toyota dealership has the Techstream software; it's what they use for a health check diagnosis.

As this is connected to the standard OBDII port up front (and not the rear Tesla gateway), any Toyota dealer can perform this check for you (ie they don't need to be EV certified).

You can also buy a hacked version of the software on eBay for around $40; search for Toyota Techstream, and find the offerings that include both the software and Mini VCI interface cable.

The “Tony Test” is merely displaying the same data from Techstream.

If your 60,000 mile RAV4 EV shows 38kWh available on Techstream, the Tony Test will show that same value as 140 miles = 3.7 * 38kWh. By the way, 3.7 miles per kWh is simply 6 km per kWh.

That 38kWh includes about 0.8 kWh at the bottom of the charge that isn’t usable.
