    MG5 plug & auto charge

    I thought I'd share some information that I have learnt about auto-charge. Auto-charge is where you just plug in your car and the car communicates with the charger and charges with no other actions required. Most are probably aware that Tesla uses auto-charging as standard for their charging...

    After the cold snap it appears the hose for the rear screen washer has disconnected somewhere within the vehicle, from the sound of it, possibly behind the dashboard. Before I start making things worse does anybody have a link to a routing diagram or similar to give me some idea of where to...

    EV plonker hogging ICE stations

    Us EV drivers complain a lot (rightly) about ICEs parking on an EV charger bay - today I saw the other side of the coin when an EV driver nonchalantly parked his car (an MG5) at a petrol pump before going to grab a coffee at Greggs. Plenty of off-pump parking bays available. What an idiot! I...

    Best range/efficiency with heating in the winter

    I've seen a few posts with an efficiency of around 4m/kw for the pre-facelift MG5. I assume these numbers are achieved at relatively low speed and without heating. What is the best efficiency you're seeing with heating on the motorway in winter and what heating settings are you using to...

    DAB +

    I usually listen to Classic FM in the car, but recently they have been reporting that they are changing over to DAB + from January. Can our cars receive this? DAB+ has been around since 2016 so would have thought so.

    My car doesn't like the cold.

    My pre FL doesn't like the cold. The tyre pressure sensors keep giving false low pressure warnings even when the display shows the tyre at the same pressure as the rest. I have confirmed by manually checking the pressures. I keep getting warnings relating to the camera and then the lane...

    HV battery not charging

    Hi All. So, I have an MG5 LR Exclusive 1st gen. Over the past two/three weeks the economy has started to drop which is to be expected at this time of year with wet-er roads, colder temps etc. However, driving like the proverbial nun, I was struggling to get more than 1.5-2.1m/kW and average...

    MG5 Range

    My MG5 less than 12 months old it used to hold on a full charge 348 miles range? Now on 100% full charge it’s only 241 miles range ? Why has it lost over 110 miles range on 100% fully charged?

    V2L 3-Phase?

    Hello, have anybody tried to get 3-phase from the car? I was looking under the bonnet/hood a couple of days ago and noticed it said "AC/DC OUTPUT1 : 250-500v 24A MAX" and "AC/DC OUTPUT2 : 250-500V 32A MAX" on the onboard charger/inverter. So that got me thinking that it's maybe possible to get...
