The HOLD on Freeway method is what we do. If we know there is overnight charging, I kick it out of HOLD 10 to 40 miles before we arrive, depending on charge level.

All various brands of chargers
Then turn OFF:
A J1772 can pick up 10 miles in an hour or less than $1 worth of gasoline.
We normally only do overnight charging when it's free at hotels or within walking distance of a hotel. The Payment Required sites cost wildly more than gasoline.
