Vampire "fill" ?!!

I'm not at all sure this is a bug, because I'm sure TeslaFi is faithfully recording that the API is reporting. But today, while my car was parked at work after a charge, it actually gained 6 miles of range in the hour after charging was complete. Examining the idle log (Idle #2765 if you want to look at it, @James), the battery doesn't appear to be providing any current, yet the rated range moves from 222.02 miles to 227.51 over the course of 10 minutes while parked! (See screenshot below)

Any idea what might be going on here?

I wish I had some insight on this but it appears the API or the battery management system is acting funny. It's not unusual to see a .1 mile jump from time to time on idles but this is a new one.

I actually had another user experience the same thing on a drive yesterday. The battery range jumped up a few miles as soon as the car was put into park. I had suggested a reboot of the car but they had already done it a few days ago.

For now I'm not sure what I can do other than keep an eye on it. If anyone notices it occurring again please post here.
