    They shouldn't do...they're just normal tyres in most cases.

    I don't think any tyre would have stopped those :eek: Speaking of punctures, I assume that you can get them fixed at a standard tyre place regardless of whether there's a TPMS @PRESSTOG ? Judging from the 3rd photo that's not a main dealer :D.

    That's an easy plug in the centre of the tyre and should be a £10-20 cost at most tyre places.

    I blew a tyre on mine the other week but put a massive hole in the side wall so no plugs for me....just £230 to replace a tyre that had about 2,000 miles on it :rolleyes:

    No just normal backstreet place as soon as fixed and pressure up all warning lights off no resets or re learning needed

    The rise in temperature seems to be having a positive effect, although that may well be because I ran the Ioniq today without using the Climate Control at all; just used heated seats ths morning. ~60 miles of country lanes all driven at legal speed tempered only for corner safety with plenty of hills at 5.1 mpu. And a free 22 minute rapid charge 8 miles from home put me back up to 93% and means my fuel cost for much of the day was £0.

    I'm getting shorter local journeys under 300Wh/Mi now which is a big change from the 4-500+ over winter.

    What were you doing on the 2nd :eek:

    Assuming that's a Leaf 4.3 miles/Kwh is pretty good. To get into the Gold category you'd probably need to turn off climate control and engage the incredibly meh eco mode.
