That is excellent work Neil, especially the eyes and fingers!! I'm dead impressed. The nearest I could get to snow art at the moment would be to wash the car and use my snowfoam but that would mean washing three and I'm not that concerned!! :-D

11,500 electric miles now takes the BB Leaf to the 40,000 mile mark.
11,500 electric miles now takes the BB Leaf to the 40,000 mile mark.
More than outperforming the original back of a tab packet calculations so far, and I "set aside" the savings over petrol on a monthly basis.

Small element of "making it work" in terms of planning charging-up en route on longer trips out, but no great inconvenience travelling around Northumberland/Durham/Scottish Borders.

Having the BB Micra as what I describe as a detached hybrid is very useful at times. It is maximum ICE bargain basement motoring. Zero depreciation/financing, the normal fixed costs of VED and Insurance, minimal maintenance MOT to MOT, and the odd half a tank of fossil fuel to keep it ticking over.
