I'm doing a journey through France next week. I've done this journey a few times now in the MG ZS (mk1) and this time ABRP has pointed me in the direction of a couple of Tesla chargers. I know that Tesla have opened some chargers and obviously the ones ABRP are showing should accept MGs...
I believe there is a page on their website that will tell you the state of the chargers.
However, the last time I passed by they were out of order but there was a service station just before the tunnel and the CCS charge was free (FOC).
Hope that helps
Good to hear you have a plan.
Unfortunately, Calais isn't the most attractive town to be stuck in. However, there is CityEurope!!!
If you have a chance could you please take a photo of the offending charger and put it on this thread as I would like to know what the make is for later...
I just answered you questions in the other link so won't go through them again but a few things to point out.
1) When my car had the same problem the 12v battery was fine. Also I think it must be a go to standard as the mechanic that came out to us tried to boost the 12v battery and...
I get these messages set through to me work e-mails so I've only just picked this up.
As I purchased the car in France (I live in the South West) it was a bit easier in regards to the repair.
The car was taken to the nearest MG garage (Lille) and as it was Christmas it took a few...
Is it ok to use the heater in the car, whilst it's charging??
It shouldn't be a problem most days as I'm an efficient driver as it is. The problem came as I needed to do motorway speeds and although I wasn't hitting 70 I still needed to keep up with the traffic and get where I was going!! Oh and...
Recently I did a long drive in the early morning. As I set off I had to de-ice the car on the inside (yes inside). As it was a long journey I didn't want to use the cars heater too much but obviously safety came first and it took and extra stop. This lead me to search for a 12v car heaters...
I'm 90% sure I did switch off, as it makes sure when you exit the car (lots of bongs!!), to let you know it's still switched on. As for waiting 10 seconds, that I'm less sure of as it was blooming cold and wanted to get into the warm terminal building as soon as possible.
If that was the problem...
First of all Happy Christmas.
Now for the warning.... BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU ARE THINKING OF USING THE FREE RAPID CHARGER AT EUROTUNNEL
I live in France and my wife and I decided to come back to the UK for the holidays. I am the proud owner of a 6 month old MG ZS EV and I have...
Are there any electricians out there who could help with my situation.
I live in France and the electrics over here are only slightly different to the systems in the UK.
First of all has anyone had a wall charger installed in a French property?
Secondly can anyone help with the specifics...
I maybe wrong but do some charging companies hold a £25 fee on your card each time you charge, which is normally paid back within 20-30 days? Could this be SteveP's problem.
Again I'm new to all this so don't shoot me if I've got confused!!!
