8% charge

I hadn’t planned to go right down to a 8% charge, but circumstances resulted in the Funky getting down to an 8% charge before I could get to a charger.

Not entirely accurate as I did get to a charger, but that didn’t work out.

So what’s the story?

The car had a 19% charge this morning with a predicted 34 mile range.

Decided to try out the free charging capability at Asda in Clevedon.

Both bays were free.

Needed the BP Pulse App to connect and charge, so that took some time.

First attempt failed.

Second attempt did work.

Really, really slow. After 15 minutes the car had charged an additional 2%. So much so that decided to abandon the process.

Did think about heading to Gordano Services and using their Gridserve chargers, but with just 14 miles to the office and a predicted range of 26 mile, I thought I would just go straight to the office.

I arrived with just 8% charge left and a predicted range of zero! Put the car on charge.

Some time later I was at 100% and a predicted range of 175 miles.
