I also keep my RX8 for longer journeys.............

I don't buy the electric car concept, but I cannot argue with the economics for local travel.

How do you find it day to day?

If you charge it at (say) a motorway service station do they charge an arm and a leg as they do for petrol and diesel?

Can you charge it from a 16A socket or do you need a special charger in the garage?

Is there a problem with using a lot of heat in the winter, and does it have aircon for the summer.

I have seen a few low mileage Nissan Leaf cars for sale for about 3,000, plus 40 a month battery lease, which would be ideal for my wife, who only drives about eight miles each way to work.
