  1. Ampera range variations?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I know that the Ampera has many quirks. This one may have been noted before: In recent weeks my battery range dropped significantly, so I tried going into 'Hold' mode, immediately on starting, to warm the car up and climb the long hill out of the village. Even so, there was a day when I only...
  2. Full tank of fuel

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Decimal point in the wrong place! Now corrected . . .
  3. Charge door problem

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    My apologies for resurrecting an old topic - but I did find the solution on this forum and it worked. The problem is that, using the forum search facility, I now cannot find it again! So my apologies to the well informed forum contributor who first posted about this product. The solution can...
  4. Full tank of fuel

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I have always shopped around for fuel and will sometimes use supermarket fuel when the premium brands are unavailable at a competitive price - with a full tank and a fully charged battery I usually see a range of around 335 but I often have to refill before it gets too low. I have completed...
  5. Ampera had to go...

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    All good things must come to an end! Glad to learn that you have enjoyed being an Amperist . . .
  6. Ampera spotting

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Incredibly, when I visited one of my waste sites in Warwickshire this afternoon, I found myself parked next to a rather smart black or possibly dark grey Ampera - it was dusk! The driver was busy unloading a boot full of cardboard but we did manage to exchange a few words - he said that he had...
  7. High miler and end of warranty risky?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I only managed 23 miles on a fully charged battery a couple days ago - however, that did include hills and several stops of around an hour or so (which I know will cause higher battery consumption) - And, I now have my Winter wheels and tyres on! Generally during a normal working day I managed a...

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Me too on that one . . .
  9. Ampera spotting

  10. Anyone in Yorkshire?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt

  11. Ampera on 5th Gear

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Which episode is this? Please provide a link?
  12. More thoughts on Ampera/Volt headlamps . . .

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I didn't think my headlamps were that bad but I decided to try the recommended LEDs to see if there was a noticeable improvement. There was an improvement but the LED units together with their respective attachments seemed rather bulky and I found it difficult to fit everything into the space...
  13. Guide to Ampera charging and Charge points

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    For me, the real advantage of owning an Ampera is that I just don't need to worry about public charging points. I always charge overnight at home on Economy 7 and very occasional I may plug in at work for a top-up. When the usable battery power is exhausted the engine takes over. Absolutely no...
  14. Floods?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Two of the three roads out of our village are blocked by flooding. Or, to be more precise, the blockage is in the form of vehicles abandoned by their drivers after they became waterlogged because the drivers ignored the 'FLOOD' sign. I have, so far, managed to avoid driving through anything...

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Our Faraday cage is 62ft long and is moored at the canal wharf!
  16. Intro and thanks from new Ampera owner

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    We live and learn! I guess most of us have done that - the two buttons are too close for comfort! Result: a moments panic! You won't do it again . . . Welcome to the forum and the best car Vauxhall never made!
  17. Repairing Door Handle Buttons

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    I have some spare door handler covers - mostly red but some are in primer - just in case anyone needs spares
  18. Lowest priced Ampera so far?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Well done!
  19. Lowest priced Ampera so far?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    It depends on their accounting system and the agreement they have with HMRC. VAT can be charged on the whole purchase price or just on the profit element (this is common in the Antique trade) which is an attractive option from a customers point of view but is more difficult to manage for the...
  20. Lowest priced Ampera so far?

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Incidentally, the original vehicle (Ampera YS15 URJ) is still listed on eBay at £6,200! Now showing as no longer available! It has since re-appeared as a new listing - and, This too has now been removed! I can't keep up . . .
