Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

Thanks for the link, Ali. Interesting reading. I have to say that much dave2010 says indicates to me that he failed in his considerations on the suitability of a Tesla for his personal needs. Something I paid particular attention to before I committed to buying my car, exactly the same model he has....

Re: Some thoughts on Vitamin D, flu, etc

I hope I’m not being a pedant here. There is a massive difference between being Zinc inadequate and Vit D inadequate. The first can be diet controlled, the second relies on lifestyle which employed people in particular cannot always accommodate, and even those of us who are retired, don’t get outdoo...

Re: Some thoughts on Vitamin D, flu, etc

Diet's fine mate. Depends how much alcohol and tea/coffee you drink. We can't all be perfect :) Clearly, if your excuse is tea, coffee and alcohol, your diet isn’t fine. I don’t know, but I suspect you are a rigid vegetarian? So you need more legumes, beans, nuts, especially nut butters, tahini, hu...

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

So the government know where you all are when they start taxing the electricity used on EVs. Maybe not for a year or so, but once the take up on EVs gathers pace they surely will. And your point being? AFAIK, its an offence to not have a valid address on your license, so I am sure its not that hard...

Re: Some thoughts on Vitamin D, flu, etc

With 25mg/day, my zinc level ( tested ) is just below the midline healthy level. So what’s your diet like? Surely the supplement should be just that, a supplement. A varied diet should provide just about all the zinc we need so I am given to understand. Taking a supplement and still being below the...

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

I sort of agree, with a £150 microwave oven it's no big deal, but a £30K (or more) car could take a big hit in it's secondhand value. Take a look at Tesla on the secondhand market. They retain their value really well and don’t appear to suffer from the usual massive depreciation in value the moment...

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

Is there any point in continuously hanging on for the technology to reach a standard we think is convenient? You could be dead before that standard arrives. I thought a lot about this before I committed to buying my Model 3 Long Range. There is evidence the batteries deplete only 10% over the course...

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

We also touched on the idea that the opportunity to always have access to a Battery that was not showing a loss of performance, would help with depreciation, as a owned battery that was 20 - 50% down on its from New Performance, would be a depreciation factor along with age and mileage. There are e...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Apparently I'm too young to have a 'flu jab 8) SWMBO gets one because she works with the homeless & other vulnerable groups... (a lot of refugees) There is no age restrictions on flu jabs. I believe the free jab is available this year for anyone 60+ and a nose snort for school children up to year 7...

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

Oil change every 10k/1 Year, I plan to not do that much in a year, so an annual oil change should be ok. Break fluid every two years. A minor service is £191, major £291. Its an indulgence but what the heck. That’s very good. Many punters are paying that and more for their rubbish commuter small ca...

I can picture Phil in a Shelby AC Cobra, wearing a cloth cap and puffing on a pipe full of Mellow something or other.
Yes, mellow something or other. Don’t forget the Biggles goggles and the white silk scarf, horizontally supported with an old wire coat hanger.

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

Indeed, I absolutely love it. Had it now for just under three weeks. Last weekend I did a 180 mile round trip and enjoyed driving it so much, I didn’t want the journey to come to an end. I now have a smart charger fitted at home. Now, when my solar PV system is generating, instead of diverting any e...

Of course. I’d forgotten about COVID hospital visiting restrictions. My bad.
