Have you checked your cookie settings? I find online ordering can be very fussy about that.
Although I tend to think an error message might appear if that is the issue.

This item about hydrogen production may be of interest.
Browsing another forum I was reading about the idea of equipping lampposts with EV charging points.
That got me thinking about some local roads with victorian terrace houses (now called cottages), the roads are fully parked on both sides because the cottages do not have anywhere else to park and most have more than one car
Counting the number number of lamp posts I reckon it works out at roughly one post to every nine houses, many issues to be overcome in places like that over the next few years!

|Thread: Another rip-off|
Seems like most sites are able to track you easily and even more so if you follow up their emails (after checking if genuine)
Just out of interest last year I was looking for shredders on Amazon, after a few days of repeatedly looking at the same one I got an email saying it was reduced for me.

|Thread: Tri-Leva decal artwork?|
There are three photos on here in my album labelled ML7.
Not sure if they are good enough (it is a bit battered).
I did find the curved surface makes getting a good photo difficult though.
Hope there would not be any copyright issues if you do this,
