    Today, I'm going to select valet mode for my commute home.

    I'm thinking it might affect the total energy used and lower my average Wh/km, even though I'm going to drive it as if I'm in a gettaway car.

    After about 40mph, it feels "ok". From 0-30 is painful.

    Update: the "rewards" not worth the pain. No noticeable reduction on energy for a commute. And a pain in the ass factor of not being able to open my garage door.

    Valetomasochism - I believe that's against the law in some states...
