    1st Experience with Electric Car

    West Wales to Brighton- would suggest a 15 mins top up at Chippenham truck stop on M4. Wouldn't need any more than that- depending on car- but most new will have 220-250 mile range now, Use this to give you an idea- https://www.zap-map.com/live/

    Vegan Cafe changes menu

    Every time I see a post by @delilah , I'm increasingly convinced he's just a troll account set up by Clive, to drive traffic/posts... Every post is just a troll point, with dozens of responses- a post declaring undying love for Dale Vince, or how veganism will save the world, must do more for...

    Shrewsbury LA, stuck in the dark ages?

    Similar vein- Had to ask a GP who's never met me, to send a letter/form to the local plod, to prove I've not experienced any factors which may affect whether I'm safe to own a shotgun... So I e-mailed it to the docs (a large multi site surgery, with their own chemists etc on site), asking what...

    Ford 4600 Instrument Cluster

    I've similar issues with a 4000, and have a new one on order at the moment- £90- but would rather get the old one working.. Not got so far as the temp and the fuel yet, but do have a new volt regulator to hand. Seems like the receiver for the cable from the dyno has worn away- so the cable no...

    Like the look of them- but dealer told me expect 12m lead time in early March. Didn't bother trying to drive one on that basis. Best of luck. EDIT- my bad- 12 months was the EV6, not E Niro

    That's quite a hit no doubt, and a shocking cost. I didn't think there were 7 year old hybrid RRs out there yet, but google tells me they've been about since 2013. Time flies. Cost would be about the same as it would cost these days for a main dealer to repair the common crankshaft failure...

    Ecotricity................

    I'm not sure how a third and fourth EV is going to help.... But with two EVs, and a battery, drawing 7kw each, for the duration of the low rate, that's 21kw/hr. At 31p/kw premium, that's £6.51/hr to Vince, if he was my supplier, for which I'd get a nice warm feeling, that I was doing my bit...

    Ecotricity................

    VAT is included, and 75% of our consumption, as to be expected from this tariff, has gone from 5p/kw to 7.5p/kw (EVs timed/programmed to charge overnight, alongside the hungriest appliances). Just over 31p/kw cheaper...

    There's no feeling threatened here. Just a slight feeling of mockery really, and a little bit of admiration. The guy has managed to "add value" to one of the most commoditised household purchases you could possibly think of, and without any alteration what so ever to the product, has thousands...

    Funnily enough, Octopus have emailed over the weekend, with updated prices as of April. I winced when I read the email, obviously expecting it at some point, and knowing it was going to hurt. Consequently, your post has cheered me up a little. Thank you. Here's Octopus' new rates- Your...

    Booked in for the Model Y test next week now. Two youngsters and a need to tow, so 3 wouldn't cut the mustard.

    Saw one up close at a dealer yesterday. Get a fantastic write up, and are supposed to be the best available. From a distance I liked the look first time- up close was less impressed. Long lead time also put me off a little. Will be interesting to see what the Genesis version coming to the UK...

    Yeah extra 100 miles is optimistic, as is the current 250. If it gives it another 50-70 it might be worth the extra wait though.
