Vampire drain on a Tesla

I curbed my Tesla Model S90D at the beginning of January and did significant damage to the the front suspension system. I had the car towed from Colorado Springs to Stuttgart Auto Body in Englewood, CO where it is awaiting parts from Tesla.

I was greatly concerned about my car's battery not being plugged in while waiting for parts, so I've been checking on the car. Kuddos to Stuttgart, they plug in my car to prevent battery damage. I no longer check it daily as I can see they're being good about charging it on a regular basis.

In case you're curious, I tracked the vampire drain (see below). Good statisticians will note that after a certain time the samples aren't every day, so it's not the best estimator of vampire drain but it's something!
