Hi Mark, At the moment I'm driving very short distances, so the engine really isn't getting a chance to overheat. However, I'd be interested to know how you're getting such high figures. What is your average drive? How do you get that wonderfully high figure? Are your tyres higher pressure than reco...

Hi Mark, There's one a few blocks away from me. My experience was, unlike Toyota, Honda really didn't want to sell us one. We waited for EIGHT weeks for a test drive, then gave up. We kept ringing too, but they just wouldn't give us one saying that there wasn't one available to take out. Grrr. I'm s...

Well, I know that it's well worth a personal visit to the DVLA. Some offices seem better than others. For what it's worth, the ones in Bristol are brilliant. They're really used to weird EV questions, and didn't have a single problem when I went in asking questions about my PHEV conversion.

hi Christopher. That is insane! Don't worry. I think it may be a jobsworth. I would make a personal appointment at your local DVLA office. Take along all your photographs documenting things and showing what has been replaced. If they're still telling you porkies then threaten to write to your MP and...

Good point, Chris.

I think we need to get some bumper stickers made... the old window stickers have an old telephone number in them which aren't applicable any more.

I have some huge old magnetic stick on ones which we use when we're doing an official event...

50p radiator mod to increase fuel efficiency.

Hi folks. I've been testing a well-known mod in the last week on Velma to see if it makes any difference to fuel economy. The mod involves attaching a section of foam pipe insulation to the top part of the Prius grille. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3048/2577610026_e761cd02a6.jpg It seems after hal...

Where do Prius go to die?

So folks...

I'm looking for two additional high voltage battery packs from the 2004-current Prius (NWH 20).

If you see a Prius in a breaker's yard do let me know. I want those packs!

Brill!

So are you coming to the Bristol Pub meet on July 4th? You can bring the Berlingo and charge at my place (just down the road from the pub)
