It's a good question and the results, if enough people respond, will be very interesting.Just wondering.
The sense I have is that almost no-one who owns a BEV doesn't have the ability to charge it at home.
Two excellent points. Converting from ICE where I have had 500+ miles range for as long as I can remember, and (still) very limited infrastructure locally would have made changing very difficult. With my nearest rapid 8 miles away, nearest public charge point 5 miles away, and no charging points at my normal shops or work (they removed them - enlightened or what despite having a zero carbon plan) it would have been very brave to make the move and likely without any cost or environmental benefits (no off-peak charging, new car vs much older).It was also my first ever car back then, so I didn't have anything to compare with.
Overall I think it's not such a big issue, provided you have the infrastructure around; one adapts pretty quickly.
I think that it is a human right to have diesel piped to every property at the Government's expense, like broadband will be after Covid-19.I find the.very occasional diversion to purchase fuel very inconvenient. Can I have my own diesel storage tank and pump at my home to avoid that inconvenience.😄
Can we get back on target please🤣along the lines of my human rights to be able to refill my diesel car at home, without paying fuel duty.The only downside is that there are already significant numbers of thefts from home (heating) fuel tanks and farm red diesel tanks whereas the thefts of electricity seems to be an urban myth. This is probably due to the relative value of them - typically £2,000 for the oil and £1/hour for the electricity.
Great lockdown tip. What's the recipe. I guess I can drive my diesel car to the supermarket to get veg oil to make diesel substitute to power my diesel car to get to the supermarket to buy veg oil....Even better than that - you can make your own organic diesel substitute from used cooking oil.
You need some equipment to filter it and crack it I believe. You’ll need to check some specialist sites.Great lockdown tip. What's the recipe.

Or I can plug in a BEV
Yeah, worst 3 weeks of my life - waiting for the click and collect with the Dalwhinnie's Winter Gold in. Damn all those hamstersDIY using sugar and yeast and a modified pressure cooker?
However I haven’t get desperate yet as my stocks of single malt are still holding up.
