Tesla Model S: Fluids and Capacities

Fluids

Air conditioning

Depending on its intended sales region, the air conditioning system is filled with R134a or 1234yf refrigerant. Refer to the label on the RH frunk trim.

If oil needs to be added to the system, use only POE ND-11 or equivalent.

Caution: Do not mix different types of A/C system oil. Model S, Roadster 1.5 and Roadster 2.0/2.5 all use different oils. Model S and Model X use the same A/C system oil.

If ultraviolet dye needs to be added to the system to troubleshoot a leak, use only Tracerline Tracer-Stick TP-3811 (Hybrid / POE) dye.

Antifreeze solutions

The cooling system contains an ethylene glycol (phosphate and nitrate free) based coolant.

Tesla G-48 coolant (part number 1012820-00-A) is a pre-mixed 50/50 solution of antifreeze and water. The coolant is ready to use. Do not add water.

Caution: Do not top-up or refill the cooling system with any other type of coolant.

Antifreeze concentration

The overall antifreeze concentration should not fall below 50% by volume to ensure that the anti-corrosion properties of the coolant are maintained. Antifreeze concentrations greater than 60% are not recommended as cooling efficiency will be impaired.
