Sorry for the slight off topic on this thread, but I was at South Coast Plaza yesterday underground EVSE parking at Crystal Court. When I arrived, there was a Volt parked in one of two J1772 spots, NOT plugged in! A LEAF was also there charging. Luckily, there was enough room in between them for me to squeeze in and use the charger that the Volt was not using (I did flag down the parking and security guy, and he said it was ok for me to split that parking spot to plug-in, and he took down the Volt's license plate).
That's not all. These spots are clearly marked with 2hr limit. I came back after 1hr 50min to move my car. While the LEAF was gone (another Volt took that spot), the original Volt was still there!
These are the ones giving GM and Volt a bad name.
