    I've had a Nissan Leaf for 3 years which is going back soon.

    Ice Breakers

There's a charging post I can use at work, but would...

    Charging Locations
    Happened this morning at M6 Charnock Richard southbound. Main car park about 10% full but a black Range Rover Snort had decided it needed to park in the EV bay by the main door to the services. Clearly their own need for a skinny mocha plonkaccino outweighs the need any EV driver might have for...
