Somehow, I think using Hitler as a spokesperson for civilized behavior seems a bit of a mismatch. Kind of like Donald Trump would be :lol: +1 on the frisbee.

hi,

i saw ev with charge pot opened sometime when i unplug my leaf from dcfc. the evgo dcfc need card to start charging. so,
- do you know if the evgo dcfc will stop a session after 30 minutes? i afraid that if i use my no-charge-to-charge card to activite a charge session from someone else, my credit card will be charged for the extra time....
- how about liability? it is someone else car afterall....should i be better let the owner to plug-in himself?

best regards

Some EVgo DC quick charger has a timer so it would stop. But some do not, so I set a timer on my cell phone, "Ok, google, set a timer for 29 minutes" just to remind me to unplug before 30 minutes is up.

Once you press stop or unplug on the charging station, then your session of 30 minutes of free charging is over.

Just FYI, a Volt will start the engine without your permission every so often to run fluids through. Devil's advocate - The Volt owner considered a pure EV and decided that the concessions were too great. He bought a car he didn't really want because of that. If someone else decides to put up with those concessions, they shouldn't burden him with their decision.
It's kind of like a couple that decides to have kids vs. one that doesn't. I shouldn't have to pick up that extra shift of work because your kid has a Christmas play.
(This is not my belief, but it does have a lot of validity.)
