Re: Land's End to John o'Groats EV Challenge

I would be delighted to enter this as long as it doesn't clash with the TTXGP races. I think the competitive element should be a measurement of the amount of power used for recharging, divided by the number of people the vehicle is carrying during the run (in the case of a goods-carrying vehicle, 70...

Re: 41.3p per kwh sell back

Personally I'm thinking rather than double your money THREE times would be better :wink: So we hook a regular DC powersuppy up to the regular mains and feed it in to the solar panel DC wiring, simples :wink: OK so you'd be paying around 10p-13p per regular kwh unit the PSU would use but then you'd ...

In some ways it's a very sensible rule. Quite a lot of people will grab full throttle in a panic, but they will stop pedalling. It's insane. There is simply no safety case to be made for banning e-bikes. They don't even go as fast as pedal bikes. You don't have to apply any force to the pedals, jus...

Hi Malcolm, Thanks for your reply. I'll take a look at the DVLA site but if it is as informative as it was when I was looking to import an electric Clio I will be none the wiser! Many thanks for your reply. Wattson The Peugeot Scootelec is legally a moped in the UK. It has to be registered, insured...
