Re: Loud vibration/wind noise, driver's side roof

Wow, I too have this noise. Some days it's worse than others (wind?) and only on a journey where my speed is fairly constant and above 50mph. It annoys my wife more than me but she then becomes an irritating passenger by pointing it out to me. I never thought of door mirror but that can be identifie...

15th Feb filled up, ICE started on 28th June. Car had been stood unused for 6 days before start up.

Re: To consume old fuel, refuel 15L or more...

I too have just had the ICE running continuously after start-up with the same message as above. The tank is full and hardly been in use thanks to lockdown so, after reading the posts here, I knew what it was all about and decided to just run it down to 1/4 full then put in 15 litres. Then I realised...

Re: Fitting aftermarket reverse parking sensors

Interesting points raised here. I've only ever had reversing sensors until I got my PHEV in November 2018. After 10 months of using camera only I can say I hate it. I prefer to be looking in my mirrors or to my rear and rely on audible assistance than having to look at the screen to see how close I ...

Re: Cost of a home charge?

The dedicated (wall) charger will charge faster than the household 'brick'. The Chargemaster may be able to deliver up to 32A but the car will only accept 16A. That's still one and a half times faster than through the 'brick', though (which only supplies up to 10A). Regarding your household consump...

Re: Cost of a home charge?

Well, just tested it for 1 hour as that was the last hour of the charge as I ran it for about 2 hrs last night then stopped it. I'm assuming the charge rate is not linear so the last hour may be a more gentle rate. The result does indicate that as I recorded 1.05 kW for that period. There is a chanc...

Re: Cost of a home charge?

That's great information, thank you. On checking my supplier's charges the cost is 13p per kWh so that puts me in the ball park you mention Chris. I'm now waiting for the washing m/c and dishwasher to finish their cycle then I'll set the smart meter on kWh to try again. We can't set the cost rate bu...

Cost of a home charge?

Can anyone tell me how much a home charge is costing them please? My 2015 Outlander is costing me £6 to £8 a time which is not what I expected. Using a smart meter with a handful of devices in use, laptop, phones and 1 lamp it indicates £0:14p for an hour. Plug in the car and consumption rockets up ...

Re: SD card

Thank you everyone for your helpful replies. I ended up using a 32gb card as I had one spare knocking about. Putting the music I thought I wanted on it I'm only using about 1/4 of its capacity. It works fine and I'm happy with the result. Still wish one of my ipods worked though - another thing abou...
