Re: Bulb upgrade

Is it easy to change the bulbs, please. The originals are pretty poor, aren't they, and the Nightbreaker Lasers look as though they would definitely be an improvement.

Re: Petrol consumption in EV mode

Thanks, I'll give that a try. A 10 mile trip today (with heater on) didn't use any petrol, only electric. It's very erratic.

Re: Unable to charge and Check Hybrid System warning

I've had this same "non-charging" problem, too, and the charging door rarely opens when pressed, I need to use my fingernails to get it to open.

Petrol consumption in EV mode

My Niro (PHEV) seems to be using a lot of petrol when it's in EV mode. First noticed this at the beginning of last month when a four mile trip saw the petrol gauge go down by 8 miles while the EV gauge was also reducing but at a slower rate. I always have the car in EV mode, letting it switch itself...

Re: PHEV charging cable

Comment for Brian: I'm thinking of getting either the Rolec unit or the EO mini. Originally I was looking at tethered units but 5m is just a bit too short so I'll be buying a separate 10m cable to keep at home. It'll add about £160/£180 to the cost so which unit I choose may boil down to which is th...

PHEV charging cable

Hi, I've bought an ex-demo PHEV today, picking it up on Monday. Please could someone tell me what length the supplied charging cable is. I'll be needing a dedicated charging point for home and am not sure whether to get one with 4.5m cable attached or not. And any thoughts on which charging point to...
