Elon Musk: Tesla To “Take Action” On Long-Term Supercharger Spot Hogging
Despite the recent implementation of a text/alert system to remind Tesla owners to vacate Supercharging stations once their charge session is complete, some inconsiderate Model S and Model X owners are still unnecessarily clogging up charging stalls well past the amount of time needed to ‘fill up’ – often for hours longer, or even overnight/full day stays.
Apparently the situation in some locations has gotten out of hand, and as a result Tesla CEO Elon Musk looks for that to end soon – promising action in a tweet today
@loic You’re right, this is becoming an issue. Supercharger spots are meant for charging, not parking. Will take action.

One of the larger offenders of Supercharging etiquette are those who also received earlier emails about excessive charging; specifically business-based ‘car for hire’ services that offer Teslas as rentals, taxis and car-sharing services – basically “parking” the EVs in a spot until they are required.
Now the only question is: “What will, and can, Tesla do to stop it?”
