Since I usually have the keys on me, I typically don't bother chasing the valet down to tip again if I just have to walk up to my car, get in and drive straight ahead.
I have tipped again when a guy had to move a cone for me and I could tell he'd been keeping an eye on the car.
And I've tipped again when a guy was going to have to help me back out and maneuver out of a space tight with other expensive cars. Kind of a body language thing, if I walk to my car and the valet comes back over and gets himself ready to help me back out then I've handed the guy an extra $5 or $10 first.
