I just got this email...

Sorry, I can only copy the text rather than the link as it was an email link to my email address...

It's actually more expensive than my current Octopus-Go tarrif but that expires in August.

May be worth switching to a slightly more expensive one now rather than seeing how much my current one goes in August ?

Although it doesn't mention BMW/MINI ?

I wonder why ?

FYI: Intelligent Octopus now works for Land Rover, VW, Jaguar, Ford and Tesla

When I read into this a couple of months ago it only worked with a very short list of specific chargers. Sounds Like it might be ideal for some but I need my car different times every day so not sure it would suit me. :)
