Something I had to share.

While it was a bit scary last month when the electric engine all of a sudden stopped working and I just made it home, I guess that is probably something that is not necessarily unexpected for a 13 year old car with more than 250,000 km on the clock.

Paul (the car) had to go to the doctor and he was fixed in two days. Turned out that is was one bad cell in the battery that needed replacement and all was fine again. No, it did not need a new battery for $5000, just a new cell in there for $800 including cleaning and servicing. And now it’s going better than ever before with a petrol consumption of 23km/l or 4.35 l/100km. Not too bad for a 13 year old car…
