Has anyone tried charging at a dealership of a " rivals " make . If I turn up at a BMW or Renault dealership in my Leaf asking for a charge , what sort of greeting can I expect ?

I've always wondered this but never actually tried it out. I'm guessing if it's free / available then they wouldn't have an issue, but only one way to find out!!

On the maps it sometimes let you know who it's for...but don't suppose it can hurt to ask. After all, you may consider that marque next.

Most dealers are critically short of space for their used stock and cars in for service, so they are quite likely to 'ICE' their charging post and might be reluctant to accommodate a 'rival' marque simply because it would make work for their staff moving cars around. I guess it would depend on your circumstances – short of range/no other charging available nearby, etc.
