    Default Scottish ferry in troubles again

    The hybrid ferry is running on diesel as it's battery is knackered and it will be a year and cost 1million to replace.
    Ain't hybrid's great eh!
    On another note, after a very cold spell, Tesla owners had to abandon their cars as the cold prevented them from charging.

    Tesla called back some 30,000 cars, all with steering problems.

    In Norway, largest number of EV, in winter they have to set the cars to a warm up situation before they can be used.
    Cuts the battery use down by as much as 30%.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    That will soon be resolved due to Global warming
