No charge data from a show ground 3 phase outlet.

Arrived at Macksville 10.05pm

Time for a sleep while it charges. There will be no charge data on this one either as it is not controlled by chargefox. Free by the council of Macksville.

Left Macksville at 5.30am.

Arrived at Grafton showgrounds at 8.14am.
EV Hilux used 21kW
T-Rev used 96 Ah
Drove 140km
Charging at Grafton showgrounds for free.



Just in case it is not obvious. I am driving home with T-Rev and EV Hilux battery packs connected together permanently. I don't have the MGEV to save the power for, so I am boosting my range and stopping to charge far less often.

Left Grafton at 10.05am.

Arrived at Byron Bay, Mercato shopping centre at 12.57pm
Drove 162km
EV Hilux used 24.1kw
T-Rev used 114Ah

It was 30 minutes to get the first cable connected using the tablet. I toyed with the phone for another 20 minutes or so but could not get the phone to connect. There is no internet service and the shopping centre wifi is very weak, in this underground carpark. We had the same trouble on the way south as well.

I really didnt want to disconnect the tablet connection. It was hard to get it. But the only way I could see was to set up both cable connections from the tablet. After a few attempts I got it. So there is 3 data pictures. Another issue we found last time was each box cannot run both port A and port B at the same time.

Cost $10 for parking. Double what we paid per vehicle on the way down. Just because it was over 2 hours in the carpark. Electricity is free.









Left Byron Bay at 3.15pm

On the way, stopped at Suzi Auto, (4.50pm  Qld time again now, crossed back over the border. NSW time is 5.50pm) for a few minutes to drop off some batteries.

Arrived at Hamilton Northshore at 5.50pm (peak traffic through Brisbane)
EV Hilux used 22.6kW
T-Rev used 109Ah
Drove 177km

Nice picture just before I plugged in. The sun was gone by the time I had both cables plugged in.

Arrived at Rockhampton at 12.58pm
Drove 169.3kn
EV Hilux used 23.3kW
T-Rev used 112Ah

Rocky Type 2 Schneider charge station does not work. Chargefox support couldnt make them work either.

I managed to work out the big box (DC fast charge box) Type2 outlet. It is supposed to be 32A 3ph but only runs 2 single ph chargers. So it is a very slow charge. I will only put in enough to make the next 100km to Marlborough.

Moved to Stocklands shopping centre to try out the Tesla destination outlet. It works. But can only use one of them. The second cable I have, has a longer plug and wont go in far enough to connect the pins.



Ok. Got enough to make the next 100km to Marlborough. I will fill it up at Marlborough.

I rolled up the cables directly after the previous post and got going out of Rocky, 4.43pm. Lost too much time in Rockhampton and still left without being full.

Arrived at Marlborough at 6.21pm.
EV Hilux total out was 25.4kW
T-Rev total out was 142Ah
So while I did 100km from Rockhampton to Marlborough, the power out does not correlate.



Chargefox data for Marlborough





Left Marlborough at 8.22pm.

Arrived at Carmilla at 10.49pm.
Drove 135.6km
EV Hilux used 20.2kW
T-Rev used 90Ah

I got it plugged in and set up swag for a sleep. Picture taken thismorning at 5am.



Chargefox data





Packed up and driving by 5.15am
Arrived home at 7.30am.



Total distance for the trip is
97095 - 92902 = 4193km



THE GENERATOR WAS NOT USED AT ALL, FOR THIS TRIP. It was taken, just in case we needed it. Fortunately, we managed to not need it.
