MS sneeking out at night?

    My MS has been hooked up to the charger in our garage for the last 10 days while we have been on holiday. Perhaps out of spite for having been left behind, I suspect that it's been sneaking out at night, stealing electricity from our neighbours. See photo...

    I think that grounding it for bad behaviour would hurt me more. So what should the appropriate punishment be?

    I didn't know they had come this far with the self driving stuff. Smart way to save on electricity!

    My car does this too especially if I tell it not to charge with the Android App. Yesterday, knowing I was not going to drive the car, I used the App to shut charging down. I was out in the garage an hour later and noted the car was making some circulation noises. Not only had the car started charging again, but it also started charging at the full 80 amp current instead of the very slow pace I normally use. I currently have 5 icons around my house all of which have happened in the last month or so after I eased all the old ones upon receiving 5.9.

    If it is out tomcatting around making Tesla babies, make sure you establish paternity so you own a share!

    LOL! The quick way to get a Gen 3 Tesla! But what can you expect from a manufacturer who's model series is S, X, E...

    Your MS is just trying to reach its full potential.

    Your MS isn't wandering. Its on guard duty as you aren't home.

    A thoughtful gift upon your return is in order. Maybe a new set of shades or tinting. Or a day at the car spa getting a wash, wax, detail, and new floor mats.

    Or get the GPS receiver's accuracy recalibrated.

    I wonder if the wife would buy that? Retractable mirrors sounds like a fair deal for such faithful service.

    After the endless jokes concerning poultry, I see a whole new line of jokes coming up: '"Why did the Tesla Model S cross the road?". :)
