Thanks again, guys. Really appreciate it.

About the M6 Toll, is it worth while? I saw there are road works on the free alternative?

Note:: I'll be passing Birmingham on a Saturday.

Lots of shops take contactless cards now, so you could just use you regular bank ATM card. Apple Pay is also fairly widely available - I assume there's an Android equivalent

You may have speed, but I have momentum...

I honestly don't know any more - I used to drive past Birmingham quite often and never used the toll, but that was quite a long time ago and things may have changed. The Traffic England web site has a map which shows you approximate vehicle speed in real time - have a look at the route you expect to follow and make up your own mind. It always used to be the case that the M6 Toll was virtually empty most of the time - you are buying a motorway for twenty minutes.....

Hi all,

This summer we will be visiting Ireland with the PHEV + caravan. We will be taking the 'Land Bridge' (take boat from Hoek van Holland to Harwich, spend one night on the East coast, one night on the West coast and then take boat from Fishgaurd to Rosslare). After spending a few weeks in Ireland we will follow the same route back home. We are very much looking forward to spending some time in the UK and Ireland.

We were discussing whether we needed to bring UK Pounds on our trip. I thought we wouldn't need to do that (having a bank card and a credit card), but is this true?

Any other tips for driving or camping would be highly appreciated. Apart from stying on the left side of the road ;-)

Thanks, Anko


Did your car got better ?

Some time ago, you reported that your Outlander PHEV was starting the ICE also when battery was almost fully charged for power demands below 40kw ... (maybe with summer time your battery now does behave better ?)

If ICE kick in for just 40kw power from battery, it is looking you will be towing all time with ICE on.

PS: Your experience with your PHEV, since it is looking one with the biggest battery degradation, could be the experience that some of us may experience in the near future ... battery degradation in my PHEV does not seams it was to slow down ... since I got mine .. my battery downgraded from 96% SOH down to 90% .. with a almost regular lost of 0.1Ah a month (with 1 exception of 0.5Ah lost)
