Too expensive to justify any regular use. Also not a fan of giving them money on the off chance that I need to use it. If/when I can pay as and when I use it, like with petrol stations, I will use when needed.

Slightly modified habits to avoid Chargemaster (considering the monopoly they have around here, you might think that's tricky, but no) because the charges are too high in all cases, and having to register and pay £20 in advance for a so-called PAYG service that might not even work when I really need it in an emergency is out of the question.

With the Ampera, petrol use is now less expensive than a Chargemaster charge. I will not be using Chargemaster unless they change their pricing structure.
That was my conclusion too, for my Ampera. My commute isn't long enough to need to charge for the home journey, so I only need to charge occasionally after longer journeys - 2 or 3 times a month perhaps. So there's no point in having a subscription.

Polar Instant pricing worked out at £5-£6 for a charge, vs £4.40 for petrol. Why would I bother plugging in?

(And that's ignoring the killer that they're billing you for time plugged in, not time actually charging)
