Charging query

I've been charging at home using the 'cheap tariff' setting which has worked fine to delay the start time until 1am. Yesterday though, for the first time I arrived back home with almost no battery charge left (4 miles range) and when I plugged in it automatically started charging. I checked my setti...

Re: Source London / Pod Point

Anyone following What Car's John McIlroy on twitter will have seen that he had a load of problems with these charge points yesterday. The majority of charge points were broken and when he found one that worked his charge lead got jammed and he had to call an engineer out to unlock it.

Re: UK electric tariffs

What average daily mileage are you doing to give that daily charge requirement ? I'm almost ashamed to say the average was only 41 miles per day which is pretty poor but in my defence I've been driving it 'enthusiastically' and over half of the mileage is fast motorway (my daily commute is well wit...

Re: UK electric tariffs

I've been checking my meter morning and night and it looks as if I would use about 9Kwh during the 17 hours of day rate and 2Kwh during the 7 hours of night rate and what do you estimate those numbers will be when you get your i3 ? I've only been driving an i3 for just over a week but so far my cha...

Re: UK electric tariffs

So how does the supplier know when you bought the electricity in order to charge you at the night time tariff? I guess it must be one of the older 'economy 7' type meters although I'm not sure. I only bought the house recently and this split tariff is what was offered to me when I moved in so I'm k...

Re: UK electric tariffs

Do you have a special meter or the standard one Plug? Just the standard meter, I did ask about the smart meter and submitted the request online but got a reply saying that they haven't started rolling these out in my area yet. The reason I asked about that was that I've read that Centrica (British ...

Re: UK electric tariffs

I rang British Gas last weekend to see if there was a cheaper night tariff for me to move onto and there was. Now paying 4.34p per kWh which is fixed until May 2015.
