    Their “getting there” page says there will be 150 ev charging bays. No mention of brands or type though.

    [UK] 2021.44.x

    Updated to .44.6 this morning and I now have vision based auto park. On a sample size of 1 it seems to work well! It actually shows up under changes for 44.5, even though it wasn’t there when I got 44.5 last week. I had noticed it offering auto park a lot more at home (I park between my wife...

    Percentage battery charge is a percentage of what? (2021 MIC M3LR)

    As to your root question, you're in luck - the latest version of the mobile app will show the energy added during a charging session. You can also get a historic view of this data with teslamate, teslafi etc. Note that in general there are 3 numbers, which won't all be the same - energy added...

    That is a hell of a lot of superchargers all within only a few miles of each other, even allowing for how jammed the dartford crossing gets. - lakeside (16v2) - service centre (8) - bluewater (17v2) - Thurrock services (16) Very nearly as much as all the other m25(ish) sites put together!

    A view from the other side..

    My wife has a leaf. Every single time you turn the car on it asks for to accept the terms of service related to connected services - I dont even know what those services are - you just have to tap ok before you can use the radio / satnav. Clearly some legal team got their way on that one. Never...

    [UK] 2021.36.x

    36.5.6 appears to have changed the rendering of the car in the visualisation area. Looks maybe a bit darker/shinier (mine is a MSM)

    App start charge/departure time incorrect after DST clock change

    Yup, saw the same here today

    Home battery energy store & heat pump advice

    Even if those low rates ever return, agile wasn’t the best fit for a heat pump, since the heat pump is adding a lot of consumption that’s not easy to shift (unless you particularly want the heating going at 2 in the morning!). It’s not like charging the car where you can just do it the next...

    Home battery energy store & heat pump advice

    It’s working out for me, with a relatively new (20ish years) home. When my oil boiler died it was about 10k extra to get an air source heat pump instead of other oil boiler, but I’ll get £9k of that back through RHI. It’s been just over a year since I had the heat pump installed, over that...

    Home battery energy store & heat pump advice

    I have solar panels (7kW, nearly due south) & a heat pump. In the depths of winter on particularly cold / grey days you might only get a few kWh from the panels but the heatpump might draw 50 kWh+ - there’s no way you’ll be self sufficient over the winter months. Even with the maximum number of...

    Minor Accident: Advice please!

    Yup, you need to tell your insurance company, even if you don’t intend to make a claim ( Vehicle insurance )

    Minor Accident: Advice please!

    Yes it was (frosts, near Milton Keynes). My insurance premiums haven’t gone up although I don’t know if they would have gone down more without it.

    Minor Accident: Advice please!

    I made a claim last year after someone scuffed my bumper pulling into the parking space adjacent to me. They immediately admitted liability and were very cooperative, so I can’t enlighten you much in that area. It did still take a good 3 months for all the wheels to turn and for them to tell me...

    UK Charge Point Installer Recommendations

    Elecology installed my EVBox Elvi two years ago (also near Ely as it happens). I wouldn’t recommend EVBox but elecology were good. It was a longish cable run and they left everything very tidy - they had to go under a paved path and they put it back nearer than how it was before. They were also...
