There was a rumour that Tesco were going to end the free charging in November, not a rumour now. :(

Even though the freebies are ending the tariff does look reasonable, especially if you use the 22 kW charger which is not that much more than home charging but 3 x quicker I presume? :-D

I thought the same Mick my charge yesterday to the range from 16 miles to 84 miles in less than a half hour and would have cost about £6.40

Taking that one step further Gibbo that is £6.40 for 68 miles or 9.4p per mile. My latest fill up cost me £71.60 and I will get 390-420 miles which is approximately 17p per mile in the Subaru, or £41.30 for 225 miles in MX3 which is approximately 18.3p per mile so still twice as expensive as your car even with the new tariff!! :)

I filled up yesterday, £74 same as last time and had done only 291 miles. Usually manage over 300 in it. To Cheshire to buy cheese. I thought Lidl would be closer.

Cheshire cheese I presume Steve! A bit like me going to Cheddar to buy mine... Although I could go to Stilton as that's a lot nearer home...

Bizarrely, Stilton cannot be made in Stilton as it's outside the prescribed geographic area where the genuine article can be made... Only in Leicestershire I believe..

I wonder if pork pies can be/are made in Melton Mowbray?

Turned out to be Wenslydale, not Cheshire, as they wanted to see some of the waterfalls around Dovedale/Malham an' 'tother one.
But she was buying cheese and 'other overpriced stuff' as he described it. She being his lodger who seems to be the one who decides what they do and whee they go.
She is nice though.

Andersen assimilated into EVIOS
Evios buys home charging business Andersen

“The Evios One provides intuitive and intelligent home charging for the mainstream while the Andersen charge point serves premium buyers attracted to design and aesthetics.”

Andersen was appointed as a recommended installer for Porsche GB and a preferred supplier for Jaguar Land Rover in the UK.

Evios was launched in April by David Martell, former CEO of Chargemaster which was sold to BP in 2018 and is now known as BP Pulse.

With £5.8 million raised from investors to date, a “robust” supply chain in place and growing order books, Evios says it is on track for rapid expansion.

Yep, watched his update yesterday.
They seem to be pushing the Norwegian one a lot, perhaps due to Cory going solo and being in Norway for a while (and naming his company in faux-Norsk).
Watched an install he was doing in Sunderland, with the Norwegian equipment and a glamorous Norwegian assistant.

Britishvolt could fall into administration as soon as Monday after the government withdrew a promised £100m in funding from the battery firm.

If there's money to be made someone will pick up the bits and it will continue having bankrupted their suppliers.
