That’s weird. The above photo appears on my phone but I cannot see it in my PC.

Same. But on my PC I only see the second one. Weird!

£215-230 for a new tyre. Nowhere seems to have one until Wednesday though.

When did you relocate to the good ol' U.S. of A?

If you're referring to the caption on the first photo, I didn't add that. Must be the forum software. Maybe that's why the photo doesn't load on PC.

No. Your location flag was the Stars & Stripes. Back to the Union flag now.

It makes sense to 'default' the home charging of EV's to the early hours & require a deliberate override to charge at peak times.

Problem is when the majority of people have EVs there won’t be a difference. Millions of cars charging overnight will be no different to millions of people boiling the kettle in the middle of Corrie.

It’s funny how senior people in the National Grid say there are no issues with capacity, partly due to the efficiency of lighting, appliances and other loads today. There will of course, be some issues with local grid capacity, especially in villages, but I can’t see how that can be a long term issue or resolved by turning off chargers.

It’s just more media bullshite

you can imagine a scenario where ,at 7.30pm after we all put the kettle on after watching Corrie, Mrs Miggins' heat pump kicks in as do the chargers for the two family cars- the local distribution networks could become overloaded.

Was talking to Deb on the way to work about this very thread and EVs in general .

Her question was quite valid, and take the global warming bollocks out...
why do EV cars pound for pound pay less ( even zero) than an equivalent ICE car in road fund licencing?

they both use the roads, can weigh the same ( more if a hybrid) etc

where will the loss in fuel duty be recovered?

We'll change to a pay per mile system once EVs become the majority.

which is what we agreed on .
that'll mean tracking tech in the vehicles or more camera installs

They'll either collect the mileage at MOT time or install ANPR everywhere.

Mot possibly, or if the vehicle is sold prior a MOT is required.
I'm sure that they'll be back street clockers onto this.

Edinburgh and the outskirts already have this technology for 5 years or more :(

ANPR is all over the place, but it's not everywhere. Most motorways have it, a lot of city centres do as well.
