We find the borne (charging post) at the Langres-Noidant services, and the stupid thing won't accept our card. Any of our three charging cards. Multiple times.
NOT AT ALL ANNOYING.
We call them up, and first off they tell us the code to identify the borne is wrong. It's too long. We give him another code, LGR1, and he can't find that either. Then we confuse him by telling him we're on the A5 when actually we're on the A31. Oops sorry, Sodetrel man.
After about ten minutes on the phone, suddenly the card is accepted. M. Le Sodetrel man says nowt to do with him. Hmm.
Anyway charging is now happening and we'll take it to about 80% as it's only 99km to the next stop.
