 He didn't specify just how long that would take.

 And it turns out it didn't take long at all: in under a week, Musk released the following policy on Tesla's website.

 "We designed the Supercharger network to enable a seamless, enjoyable road trip experience. Therefore, we understand that it can be frustrating to arrive at a station only to discover fully charged Tesla cars occupying all the spots. To create a better experience for all owners, we're introducing a fleet-wide idle fee that aims to increase Supercharger availability." 

 Owners will be alerted via their Tesla vehicle app once their car is done charging and any fees that are incurred after the charging cycle is done will be refunded up to five minutes after the notification is sent out.
