Thanks GDN. I understand how blue oval charge is meant to work but every EA station I've been to says to plug in first then initiate the charging. So I'm wondering if anyone has had success activating the charger before plugging in. It seems that plug in and then initiate via app or nfc membership card is negated if plugging in will trigger blue oval charge network payment processing. I want to be able to use blue oval sometimes but take advantage of EA member discounts in the long run.If you have your Ford account all set up and plug in to charge you can use your free charging and pay the higher rates after the free is used up, it should all just work by plugging in, no other interaction.
If you are having to pay for it and want the cheaper rates you need to sign up for an account and activate the charger before plugging it in to your truck.
