Hi all. Loved the Ampera from launch day and followed all its development but really not keen to spend 30k on a Vauxhall. So I waited a year ish and decided to look for a good used car. My approved Ampera specialist were very unhelpful and I walked away and sulked for a few months. Then on a whim I visited my local dealer Sherwoods of Stockton and despite knowing very little about the cars (way less than me) they were so enthusiastic. There were 4 cars on the Network Q site and apparently the dealers can bid on them, a bit like ebay. So they sourced me a stunning 62 plate Positive car with low mileage. The car had been a Vauxhall manager's car and it had the upgraded infotainment system so its pretty much an electron. Well 2 weeks in I still love it and I get so excited to go out on a morning. Making the best of the charge my car App, I get to charge her for free a couple of times a week and I have used less than half a gallon of petrol. With the tax savings and my mileage allowance combined with the fuel savings the finance is subsequently almost free and the car is costing me nothing. I have a spread sheet that combines petrol and equivalent electricity cost and pound for pound my car does the equivalent of 175 mpg.

It could be 'Charge Your Car' I have it from the Google Play store on Android, might be available on iTunes as well. Not many points up in my neck of the woods and the only local ones I know of are not listed yet.
