  1. Polar introduce £1.20 charge for FREE charging ?! from 1 Dec

    General Charging Discussion
    True... I can't see the new tariffs being of any interest for PHEV drivers though...

    Except if you live in MK, you'll charge at home at 10p/kWh (and no £1.20 usage fee)

  8. Polar Charge Unit - No usage?

    Same here :( I emailed CM last week, but haven't had a reply yet...
  9. Milton Keynes muppet

    General EV Discussion
    Whilst I condemn his actions, what crime could he be considered for? It didn't look like he was malicious and caused any damage - merely mischievous, causing inconvenience?

    General Charging Discussion
    Has anyone else seen this? Low cost electric vehicle charging brought to over 200 charging points in Milton Keynes | oneMK Admission, finally, that charging more than the price of petrol was a mistake...?
  12. New recall incoming

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Mine's a 2012 Ampera, and I received a letter from my local dealership last week informing me that the vehicle was subject to a recall. I booked it in for yesterday, and they didn't know what the recall was over the phone - other than "reprogramming the body control unit". Still none the wiser...
  13. "Use them or loose them" Charging points

    General Charging Discussion
    I agree with you - and whenever I can find EV charging that's free, or low priced, I use it - in part my motivation is to show other drivers that they're not magical, and often engage in conversation with curious ones.
  14. Milton Keynes at the weekend, ICE-ing central?!

    General Charging Discussion
    Meh. I haven't plugged my Ampera in once in public since the crappy pricing came in a year ago. I've used far more petrol, but saved a chunk of cash. But I happily use the EV spaces in CMK. It feels dumb blocking them, but hey - if the electricity was cheaper than petrol I'd plug in... I...
  15. Chargemaster / Polar and MK Council 2014 EV charge and park pricing

    General Charging Discussion
    I had some last month, posted above. Today's been frustrating for me. I've been zipping around all over MK, and used all my charge early on. I parked at several posts, but didn't plug in due to the cost, and so used a few litres of petrol. So insane.
  16. Hybrids not worth the effort

    General EV Discussion
    Wow, what a subjective post and topic! :) My Ampera is good for me - the BIK rate made it very attractive, and I have lots of EV-only days, and maybe 1 or 2 petrol days per week. It's like having two cars - I can nip on a 300 mile round trip without having to faff with rapids and destination...

    I love that they told @charles545587 that there are no plans, a week after they told me there are! :P

    I think the official stats were "half of f*ck all" since April 1st. I may be paraphrasing...
  20. Telegraph video review of the e-tron

    Audi A3 e-tron
    I think the majority of e-Trons are going to be sold to company car drivers. They don't give a damn what the fuel cost is, or the real world MPG. It's about the BIK, and the fuel card tax. Both of these are based on the official CO2 emissions. For my Ampera: £59/month BIK £36/month fuel card...
