So I went to a fancy restaurant last night and didn't want my guests to walk so I used the valet parking. When I was driving home I happened to glance at the energy graph and saw a big spike that wasn't there before. The next morning I made the same trip driving in a similar manner to the night before. Basically the drive from my home is all uphill to the restaurant, which is only about a mile away. The white letters A-B-A show the energy used for my "test" trip.
Using those distances I figured out what happened after I handed over my fob to the valet. Even though the garage was right around the corner, he went for about a mile test drive, and pretty much floored it as much as possible.
For perspective, here's my last 30 miles of driving. Guess what Mount Rushmore is.
So if you don't want some kid driving your S around like a maniac, it's best to tell the valets up front that you can monitor their driving remotely, there's a log you can pull up in the car, and you don't want him getting the Tesla Grin. Fortunately my car's fine, but next time I will be reading them the riot act as I hand the fob over (and I'll reset Trip B and take a look at the mobile app while he's parking it).
