  2. Reverse gear but car moving forwards

    Volkswagen e-Golf
    Was the car at full stop before trying to change gear? On the Leaf if you are not at full stop and select reverse the car will beep and not change. Similarly if you're not at a full stop and press "P" it will beep and not go into park, but go into neutral, and if you're on a slope, keep rolling!
  3. Wanted: LeafDD (or other Leaf monitoring device)

    Electric Vehicle Classifieds
    LeafDD is just more convenient. It’s powered by the OBD port, and turns on automatically, so whenever the car is on, or charging, it lights up. It’s also always on standby, so you can reach in the car to check charge level by pressing one button. Also it’s clearly not a phone, so not a target...

    Site Feedback and Wishlists
    The drivegreen ad is still showing but just once at the bottom of the page. But honestly the content to garbage ratio is very bad with the new design.

    It’s fucking awful.
  6. Solar install quote - competitive?

    Power, Fuel, Alt Energy and Environmental Impact
    I would say "no". It's single aspect and zero shading: But every quote has included it, perhaps this is part of the "game" as an easy item they can swap to bring the price down?
  7. Solar install quote - competitive?

    Power, Fuel, Alt Energy and Environmental Impact
    I've had some additional quotes (from Joju): Option 1 20x320watt sunpower panels (6.4kwp, all black) solar edge inverter £9,846 Option 2 20x330watt LG panels (6.6kwp, all black, in roof) solar edge inverter £11,902 Option 3 20x390watt sunpower panels (7.8kwp, blue) solar edge inverter £12,969...
  8. Kia e-Niro launch, demos and model update could have been better planned?

    Kia Niro
    What has changed on the new version? the UK website just seems to mention the "First edition" still
  9. Solar install quote - competitive?

    Power, Fuel, Alt Energy and Environmental Impact
    Thanks for all the responses so far. I will check leeds solar and jojo out. The voltage optimiser did sound like a gimmick to me - I get my kettle will use less power, but it's just going to run for longer, so what's the point? With two EVs in the near future, (one of which is home most of the...
  10. Solar install quote - competitive?

    Power, Fuel, Alt Energy and Environmental Impact
    I've had a quote (for a few different system options) for a solar install, and would appreciate some input on whether it's competitive or not. Option 1 16x300watt viridian panels (4.8kwp) solar edge inverter, power optimisers, voltage optimisers IBoost for hot water Sonnen 7.5 (6.8kwh usable)...
  11. Solarplants - Home survey odd request

    Power, Fuel, Alt Energy and Environmental Impact
    No, not really, perhaps to just make sure any questions either of you have are answered.
  12. Top Gear EV Special

    General EV Discussion
    Yeah LeafDD has been onboard for almost 5 years. I ignore the GOM because as you say Low Battery Warning comes on with a quarter of a charge left, and I’ll - - - when there’s a good 6 or 7 miles left. I also get many more miles out the second half of the pack than the first. All in all the Leaf...
  13. regret I ever went electric....

    Ice Breakers
    I’m sure you’ll get your Pod-Point fixed at some stage, and end up with a reliable unit. My home charger has worked flawlessly every day for over five years now. As for a 250 mile trip? Yes they suck in cars with small batteries. But in a Kona, Niro, any Tesla, the Leaf e+, or even the new Zoe...
  14. What is the obsession with white interiors I don't get it

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    It looks nice, and I haven’t seen people moaning about colour transfer or staining.
  15. Solarplants - Home survey odd request

    Power, Fuel, Alt Energy and Environmental Impact
    I have them coming round tonight, said they expect about 90 minutes, and yes wanted to make sure my partner was home, too.
  16. Hybrid conversion

    General EV Discussion
    The most effective way to do this is to sell your current car and spend that money on an existing hybrid car - they can be had from about £4K in the second hand market.
  17. Used car battery pack sizes compared?

    Tesla Model S
    90's also had higher degradation rates as I remember, so won't be much better than an 85
  18. Down to 8 capacity bars

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    The Japanese Leaf has the electronic parking brake rather than the foot operated one in the Sunderland Leaf, so without adding your own new handbrake and persuading the MOT tester to pass it every year (possible of course) you kind of have to fix the electronic one. That needed a new controller...
  19. Bought my first approved used Nissan Leaf this weekend and it's bricked next day

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    You need to have your foot firmly on the brake pedal before you turn the car on. Your car is not "on" it's in "accessory mode", like when you've put the keys in position on on an old fashioned car.
  20. Down to 8 capacity bars

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    First bar went some time in 2015 second bar in 2017 and third bar just now. So considering first bar is double the size of the others it's totally linear and hasn't slowed down.
