  1. Reasonably solid information about forthcoming superchargers

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    It seems the mid-Wales supercharger is going in at the Caer Beris Hotel in Builth Wells - credit to Roy Portlock over on TMC for his detective work. Hotel confirmed they were being installed in 6-9 months. So look forward to those opening in 2023 :p:p
  2. How are you finding the SR+ range

    Tesla Model 3
    Don't worry, not put me off yet! Just looked at the supercharger map https://www.tesla.com/en_GB/findus?bounds=57.08035368860622%2C-0.4471360000000004%2C55.10749372444491%2C-7.478386&zoom=8&filters=supercharger&location=stirlinguksupercharger It seems there is a new one arriving in Sterling...
  3. I’m a Uber driver, “I need 90%”

    In other news. It really annoys me when people pay for a hotel room and check out early...
  4. Replacement key...?

    Oh dear oh dear, that's a sad, frustrating and expensive tale there. You hang on to the keys now presumably?
  5. What Happened To The Brexit Thread

    Off Topic and Banter
    Lib Dems, Greens, and Plaid Cymru have announced a list of 60 seats where only one of these three parties will stand. That's going to open up a lot of seats to being winnable by the one running. From the Lib Dem site:
  6. Replacement key...?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Zeer- My wife has this peculiar propensity for losing her keys in the sea. She was parked in a beach car park in Hillarys in Perth and lost her Hyundai Sonata keys in the sea while paddling. Of course it was a bank holiday weekend 43deg C on a Sunday. She called me on the mobile to tell me...
  7. Massive Supercharger station near Reading. Just opened?

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    Been there a couple of weeks ago. I can well imagine it's flood prone as it is very close to a river. Loos in hotel are a bit of a walk, but friendly enough.
  8. Are EV sales doubling every year ?

    General EV Discussion
    The "road-warrior salesmen" care about company car tax and image, hence once they know how fast the Model 3 is, they may move in mass on EV a lot quicker then you are expecting. Then when they stop for a evening meal, they are lickly to use a rapid on expenses if the pub/restaurant has one...
  9. The EVEZY Discussion thread

    General EV Discussion
    Telsa SC at Hilton T5 Heathrow is a bit like this - you go to the hotel lobby and swap your ticket (show them your Tesla keys/card) for free parking during the charging time. Nice lobby to wait around in too :)
  10. What Happened To The Brexit Thread

    Off Topic and Banter
    Portsmouth South is a really interesting one. Used to always be Tory or Lib Dem, and the old Lib Dem candidate (Hancock) was very popular. But then last time Labour came from nowhere and became the contenders, pushing the Lib Dems into a distant 3rd. So either the Lib Dems are recovering now or...
  11. How are you finding the SR+ range

    Tesla Model 3
    Don't forget to go through the No Entry signs (make for the hotel) when going from southbound to northbound (or the other way around) to get from one service area to another for the SCs which are in the southbound service area.
  12. 152 mile around trip in the Leaf 40

    General EV Discussion
    The fumes are an issue to for me. I don't like spending much time in city centres anymore. Last year I bought an office, I purposely bought it on the edge of the city centre so that we wouldn't have constant traffic going pass all day. You've done well in the Golf, I couldn't imagine going up...
  13. 152 mile around trip in the Leaf 40

    General EV Discussion
    I must say, I do find the fun in running an EV. My wife less so - why can't we just speed up to make up the time because I was late getting ready...... My other issue is regarding MSAs. I have spent over a million miles of ICE driving specifically avoiding woeful MSAs, only to find that the new...
  14. 152 mile around trip in the Leaf 40

    General EV Discussion
    Interesting comments Rob - and from many in this thread. I've enjoyed reading them but don't necessarily agree with everything. In summary, I think EVs at the moment can work well for many people but not yet everyone. If all of those that could use an EV tried to switch across tomorrow it...

    Yes. Nothing to do with Tesla's though. ;)

    You two have changed from being ship watchers to port watchers! @SWoll are you shacked up in a dodgy Southampton hotel with a long lens?
  17. 152 mile around trip in the Leaf 40

    General EV Discussion
    On the world scale, 60 - 70mph is taking it easy on motorway type roads. In the USA the speed limit is 75, in most European countries it's 80 - 85. We didn't have time to go slower or stop and charge on the way, we were running late. We probably could have travelled along at 50mph and arrived...
  18. Doubletree by Hilton - Winnersh - 20 Tesla branded chargers

    Nissan Leaf40
    So, just driving to Costco today and saw something I’ve never noticed before - 20 Tesla branded chargers at Doubletree by Hilton hotel. I swung in on the way back (I’ve got the leaf 40kw) to have a quick look - are these chargers just for Resla? They’re red and white - Tesla logo’d but they’ve...
  19. Massive Supercharger station near Reading. Just opened?

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    The weird part is that they have built it in an area the floods every year. It's famous in the area (it's in front of the Most House hotel). They recently built new houses near there so maybe the area has some "fixes" for flooding but I'm dubious! Fingers crossed its ok.
  20. What is the best place for a rapid charger?

    General Charging Discussion
    The thing about having rapids at a destination is that if you're going to stay for several hours then you would be blocking the charger and preventing other people from using it after the first 45 minutes. In those kinds of places the same money would be better spent on having a large number of...
