My first encounter with a hybrid was some years ago when a neighbour bought a Prius, keeping it for about three years, during which it averaged almost exactly the same fuel consumption as my then 3.0 petrol XJ6.
Funny thing about electric cars, I had gotten into my head that the charging points were 'free' to use and charge your car. I'm unsure where this snippet came from, but I thought that was the great allure for these vehicles apart from the purchase Govt grant.
Yesterday, while in the car park for the Park and Ride at Carmarthen, I looked at said machine and it wanted a credit card for use!!!! WTF! It also offered three different connectors with different Amperage ... not even consistency across the bloody plugs.
Heck of a standard don't you think!
Plus I thought it was all free!
