    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.

    I have never used or actually seen a public charging point for some reason they are as rare as hens teeth in our area, I was under the impression these charging point charge around £0.35 kWh our PHEV is now were kWh energy efficient as a pure hybrid at £0.35 kWh it is cheaper for us to press the charge button and burn a little petrol whilst driving, plus I don’t have a charging lead.

    The main place I come across Outlander PHEVs charging is at supermarket charging posts, the 7kW variety although I think you’d only pull 3.6kW? There’s not even an AC port on most of the latest rapid chargers.

    I think that with the charging at home you’d never get a return on the investment of a new type 1 to type 2 charge cable, although you can pick them up secondhand on the bay of e upon occasion.

    We have considered a type one charging lead (our Podpoint is tethered) our local Tesco’s supermarket is only 5 miles away, but does not have a charging point, and yes you are right our PHEV is only 3.6kW, we cant really justify a lead.

    We have just returned from holiday towing our caravan to the New Forest, still pleased with the Outlander no problems at all the car has not missed a beat, we towed 178miles without having to stop for a change the seating is so comfortable.

    So far the PHEV has covered 2563miles including towing 750 mile our total running cost including electric £179.94, which compare very well against our previous Ford Kuga 2.0 diesel 150bhp powershift which was a very reliable and economical car to run, to cover the same distance costing £360.53.

    Overall we have saved £180.59, for September our total fuel bill including towing and 3 week holiday running around £54.15, last month because we did not tow our caravan our fuel bill £16.16
