Re: Best way for charging

Charging at an EH charger costs 30p/kWh. That gives me 6kWh to 80%, or roughly 20 miles, for £1.80. Assuming 35mpg, 20 miles would use 0.57 gallons or 2.6 litres. At £1.20 per litre, that's over £3 of petrol for my £1.80 charge. Even at an extremely generous 40mpg, that's £2.73

Re: MG battery factory

We have a 2015 ZOE for commuting - it does ~10k miles a year driving into Leeds and back. It cost ~£5k 3½ years ago, and the same 2015 R240 (22kWh) model sells for much the same price now.

Re: which charging cable away from home

It depends where you are based, but cars using Type 1 "chargers" are getting less common in Europe - the main cars were Mk1 Leafs and our PHEV. So you can often pick up a secondhand type 1 to type 2 cable quite cheaply. The PHEV only ever takes a maximum of 16A, so you can save a small amount by get...

Re: cant start _ Mitsubishi cant find any fault

A low 12V can give all sorts of weird outcomes, though I've never heard of this set of errors. It's certainly worth checking it just in case.

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

I'm not sure why it matters what the mpg is as the car isn't being "inefficient". I'm afraid it is doing exactly what it was designed to do when not enough fuel has been used over 3 months (or 93-ish days). I'm also afraid that there is nothing you can do to change it except go for a longer drive at...

Re: new owner phev

I had a similar problem when a garage "misplaced" the locking wheelnut adapter on our Mazda. I went in to our local Mazda dealer, and they were able to try all the adapters they had in for their various cars until they found one that fitted. They were then able to order me a replacement which arrive...

Re: Factory charger fault

I must admit that mine was left on 24/7 when we used it to charge the car. The plug and brick were inside the garage with just the charging part of the cable poking out. We did stop when I noticed the the plug was warm in direct sunshine in the summer (NSS!) but it still seems to charge fine occasio...

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

So I just left the charge button on full time, traveling at about 72 mph. I began to notice as the battery got up to 75 percent SOC, my instantaneous mpg improved by at least 25 percent... From about 21 mpg on level ground, to 28 to 30 mpg. Additionally, as the battery indicator got closer to 80 or...

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

You really don't get it, do you? :roll: At higher speeds, the PHEV is more economical in Parallel mode than Series mode: Mitsubishi designed it that way. I have never, ever argued that that is not the case. But you're arguing that Parallel mode (at high speed, with all the extra forms of drag that t...

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

It says that if you are going to run at higher speeds, it is more efficient to run the PHEV in Series mode if the battery is low. However it doesn't say that the PHEV is more efficient at higher speeds than at lower speeds, which was my initial question. The graph doesn't say that quote "if you are...
