site will welcome you but most locations are intended for 3+ hour stops and therefore don't offer Leaf fast charging (they do have 32A charging for cars that can use it).
DC Fast Charge does exist but I'm not sure I would rely on it today
I'm feeling more and more comfortable with the idea of the Ampera now that I know ZipCars offers it. I do like the list of hotels on Zero:Net and am considering trying to book some of them for my trip, especially in the Cotswolds. Certainly in that hilly country YMMV really has meaning. And although overnight charging is nice the interurban travel is the tricky part with many many even official L3 stations on dealer lots that say for customers only
. Personally, if they want me to buy a tee-shirt or number plate frame or something that's fair trade as customer, but if they expect only new serious car customers to be legitimate that's effectively no-one because who would need a QC if they were trying to buy a new car? Likely if they're buying a new car it's because they're trading the LEAF in for a fancy-smancy 2013, UK build LEAF so who cares if it's charged or not (because once you drive an EV, it's impossible to go back!
Anyway, probably won't have time to attend any LEAF events in the UK while there as I'm only in GB for a couple weeks but I'll keep an eye out as I always like to say hi to my fellow EV enthusiasts.
And Kevin, thanks for being such a great member of the British LEAF community!
