Had a long trip down South today and decided to stop for a bit of food (and electricity) on both legs at Leicester Forest East on the M1. On the Southbound one, there is building works so you can only park sideways. If someone had used the fast charger, I could have got blocked in.

On both occassions I sat in the canteen in view of the chargers in case there was a sudden rush and any BEVs wanted to charge (I have a REX).

On the northbound services, a Tesla pulled up and seemed to have problems. He stopped at the slower charger and swiped a yellow card on the Ecotricity post. He didn't have a cable. He eventually drove off. I didn't get chance to speak to him; I would have told him what a lovely car he has....but not sure why he was unsuccessful with his charging attempts.

Paul - Model S (as pic).

Derek - I did get a weird warning light on the first leg. Low pressure tyre warning. I'd worried there may have been a nail from the works or something but remembered the comments in the forum. Seemed to clear after I went into the screen to check it.

Derekb - enjoy it while it lasts because when ecotricity start charging next year it won't be economically viable for us Ampera drivers to use them.
