    Uk Blackouts & Octopus Go

    Just had a horrible thought... If these Government scheduled blackouts start during Winter... For every day you have a Blackout, your Smart Meter won't record the 30 minute blocks... Octopus Energy will then default onto their Terms & Conditions and charge the whole day use at Flexible Rate...

    Model 3 - Yoke Steering Wheel Removed

    I've removed my Yoke steering wheel from my Model 3 Performance, after nearly 12 months of use. I fitted it specifically to see if I could get used to that style of steering device, before spending £100k on a new Model S (whenever they arrive) I personally really liked it, so that mission was...

    M3P - Lowered Springs Gone

    Just looking at the UK Model 3 Performance and there's no mention of Lowering Springs anymore. Even the car graphic doesn't jump lower as you flick between Long Range and Performance model. Any ideas when this changed?

    Octopus SEG Tariff
