Re: Charging under lockdown

It's conceivable there are differences in the UK implementation, but the multiple key presses you describe instructs the car's computer to accept a new connection, and (as far as I can tell) WiFi is always on even before this procedure has been done (though I obviously can't go back in time to check...

Re: Charging under lockdown

Won't the WiFi always be on, continually broadcasting (10 times a second) the car's SSID? The power draw should only be a few watts.

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

Thanks greendwarf , I filled up 19th March and haven't used a drop since, so if nothing changes before mid-June (unlikely in my personal view, I don't think the current UK lockdown can continue for another 6 weeks, whatever the epidemiologists say) I may have to resort to the fuse trick. Presumably ...

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

Thanks HHL. But I'm really trying to find out how to stop the warning from triggering, Would a single, short run of the engine during a 90-day period be enough?

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

I'm in much the same position, STS134. Does anyone know whether the message is triggered only if there has been absolutely zero use of the ICE? Would a single short engine start resulting from an over-enthusiastic use of accelerator be sufficient to prevent its display?

Re: Clock weirdness

Thanks greendwarf , that does seem to have been the problem. I take a snap of the charging cost screen on the last day of the month, and on the 31st March the clock was still on GMT. I didn't turn the car on fully, just two pushes on the 'Starter' button to wake the MMCS up, so maybe it doesn't upda...

Clock weirdness

In the current lockdown, I took the PHEV out today for its weekly run to the shops. I noticed that the clock displayed on the MMCS was 9 hours ahead of BST. On the way back it was 10 hrs ahead. After recharging was complete, it was back to the correct time. I was under the impression that the time c...

Re: A few questions!

Definitely probably :). My 65 plate was delivered on Xmas eve and is the (facelifted) 2016 model, but there are 65 plate 2015 models around. I don't think there were many (any?) changes for 2017.

Re: future purchase

I don't know where you've obtained the information that the standard charger is "not meant for regular use" - I can't find anything from Mitsubishi to support that. I'm aware that too much fast charging is not good for the battery and I understand Tesla monitor and will ultimately limit over-frequen...

Re: future purchase

Be aware that the granny chargers are not meant for regular charging though. The high current involved over long periods of time and multiple times of the plug and socket being connected and disconnected can cause loose connections and overheating. As long as you keep on top of inspection and maint...
