    Octopus Energy Saving Sessions

    There’s lots changing in this space at the moment. DFS’ competitors are growing. The commercial Battery Energy Storage System operators have been struggling for revenue and capital last winter as interest rates remain high and energy prices dropped and so cancelled dividends. Changes are...

    Good bye

    Mod Request: random M3 Highland has appeared in the OP? Bizarre. Perhaps this thread has run its course. It was intended to be a courteous exit rather than another thread debating the state of the nation with our stateside cousins.

    Good bye

    Ionic 5? I know it’s not a Tesla, but I fancy a change. Slightly fewer software updates. Max charge rate is good. Battery size is good. I like the look. Price is good. I’m not doing the miles anymore (but SuC now open). Not overly worried about key security- I don’t live in London or Birmingham...

    Good bye

    It’s been a blast, literally. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my Tesla adventure over the last 5 years but I have started the countdown to the lease expiry date and I think I’ve made a decision on my next car. My needs have changed with WFH. Superchargers open to all seals the deal. I’ll try to be...

    24hr TSLA trading

    TSLA share price has taken a 43% hit so far this year. Timescales reality check to deliver the FSD dream + EV headwinds generally? I bet there’s a few people lost chunks.

    Renew your EV Road Tax

    I’m not aware smart EV chargers are made to the same standards as those for required for electricity meters (or calibration requirements). If not, there seems little chance they could be used for tax purposes. #good luck with that. Accurate within 10%...

    Hows your adaptive high beam?

    I’m liking the matrix lights. However, not everyone has 20/20 vision and eyes in perfect health. ‘Incredibly bright’ for some means ‘blinded’ for others. I’m not sure ‘just get used to it’ is the answer. A couple of people I know would scare the hell out of me if all oncoming cars had incredibly...

    My experience taking Tesla to court about FSD

    ‘Comning soon’, the Automated Vehicles Bill [HL] 2023-24 is in its late stages and I can’t see why a new Government wouldn’t (in a post Brexit world) continue with it. Part 4 on Marketing allows the Secretary of State to ban some words (by making regulations) from being used to promote cars that...

    The year is 2035. How far have we got?

    “keep them at 100% go on holiday for a month and only lose 5%.” you can tick that one off your list already. Musk promises that in 2036 that the long tail of problems *should* be solved and Tesla will *soon* activate Robotaxi for a one-off system registration fee of $15k which will probably...

    If it’s un-drivable won’t your insurance provide a hire car? Given EV repair times the option should be considered almost compulsory!

    Tesla reduces output of Y and 3 in Shanghai

    Is it temporary though? I don’t see it returning any time soon. Look at the cost of Nuclear. The high prices do help the Net Zero journey though. While energy was so cheap the business case to invest in PV or EV infrastructure was reliant on altruistim rather than financial returns - you could...

    [UK] 2024.2

    I didn’t say violent braking but I agree it’s behaviour associated with a car scared of cars in adjacent lanes. Annoying.

    .2.8 I think my spirit has been broken. AP phantom braking when the vehicle in the adjacent lane to the left moves sideways within its own lane is just sooo annoying.

    Octopus Energy Saving Sessions

    14,968 points so far this season or just under £19 and is a shed load less than last year. It’s a shame about the in-day adjustment but I do believe getting rid was the right thing to do.

    My experience taking Tesla to court about FSD

    I’m not sure this is about punishment or making Tesla bankrupt. A UK GLO doesn’t seem likely if it hasn’t already happened and Tesla has put aside the money to pay out anyway it’s not going to bankrupt it. I do hope it goes some way to warn firms trading in the UK about the risks associated...

    My experience taking Tesla to court about FSD

    The silence speaks volumes. I would keep quiet too. Goes to show that UK consumer laws do the job.

    Just remember the back-billing rules too: https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/information-consumers/energy-advice-households/check-energy-back-billing-rules No electricity bill for 12 months = free electricity. Octopus had sent me bills over the years but there were gaps in smart meter data and unknown...

    Two in quick succession- I thinking it’s a test of the systems ability to recover. I.e people offset demand, will they be fatigued, will batteries be recharged.

    My experience taking Tesla to court about FSD

    I’m reading too much into the silence (settlement negotiations?) High Court Enforcement Officers (Bailiffs) seem like they know their stuff.

    Flint Supercharger Open to All BEV’s

    Surely the cooling system for the computer is designed to deal with the maximum possible heat the computer can throw at it? Now if the octovalve / pump setup changed might do it. Is this the Atom screen processor overheating (or whatever they have in newer cars)?

    How to remove my pod point tethered charger from Tesla charge port? (Without using the screen in the car)

    Unimaginable that Tesla would restrict charge port unlock for company cars. My lease car is fine. You don’t need any 3rd party app nonsense for this. If you don’t have the lightning bolt icon on the App just push and hold on one of the four icons you do have and swap it out. You could also use...
