Model 3es killed it again allegedly
Error 131

Just topping up at Gwelup at present. Informed by Energy tech guy that new Veefil charger due to arrive in 2weeks. Coming from Qld. Apparently Model 3 cars tell machine to draw 80kw and it can only supply 50kw. Something then melts. Sounds like there is no software instruction to limit power export to 50kw. 3rd time lucky.

According to a document (that perhaps you uploaded somewhere, Joseph), that's "Problem detecting the grid supply". Doesn't sound like "something then melts" to me, unless it's a fuse or breaker either supplying the Veefil charger or right after the mains connection inside the Veefil. It's marked as "On site visit required to restore functionality", so I'd go with the latter.

No 50 kW power limit at all sounds very unlikely to me. However, some bug in the power limiting firmware that gets triggered by certain Tesla Model 3 vehicles sounds more plausible.
